Lecture Demonstration: Kali to Krishna

Dr Padmaja Venkatesh Suresh
Get Direction

Kali and Krishna are but two names of feminine and masculine forms of the One consciousness. Shakti as mother endears her creation in both these aspects and delivers the rest, on time. The darkest attributes absorb the cosmos and once again sustain with the eternal light. We see throughout the lecture and performance, that time and space are but joyful myths that veil the ultimate Bliss as Reality. This production is inspired by Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa who was a devout follower of Kali Maa and often saw Radhakanta in her image.

Kali the Dark one, the subjugator of time will be viewed with the divine flute player Krishna with legends and symbolism.
