traditions around the persona of Sri Krishna are entertaining and
philosophically rich in equal measures. According to his devotes, when Krishna
sits on his favourite Kadamba tree and plays the Mahananda flute, the tunes thus
produced capture Radha’s heart, and she comes running, longing for the company
of her treasured Krishna. Radha’s yearning for Krishna is seen as a symbolism
for the soul’s yearning for the Ultimate Truth, whose personification is Krishna.
gorgeous brass statue, a fluting Krishna sits atop the Kadamba tree, while an
enchantingly adorned Radha tries to take a glimpse. The Kadamba tree is covered in fruits, acting as the asana for Murlidhar. A youthful Krishna sits comfortably on the top of the tree, decorated in jewels. Radha's figure under the tree is smoothly polished, with a bare upper body. Her dhoti is profusely decorated with natural and geometrical designs. A small pot of water rests on the slender waist of Sri Radha. The message contained in
this image is as beautiful as the idol itself. The Lord guides his beloved
human soul through the divine music of his flute. It is up to the aatman to
look past the Maya or illusion and reach out to the Paramatma.
