Playing Vina

This new painting by Vrindavan Das depicts a scenario following the fulfilment of the longings described in Vilapa Kusumanjali (89). Sri Radha is teaching Tulasi the art of singing and playing Vina. Amidst the lesson, Sri Krishna enters the cave at Govardhan and Tulasi makes her exit to leave the lovers alone for their pleasure pastimes.

Oh Tulasi... crying.gif Please tell me, do you mean tulasi manjari or Vrinda devi?

Tulasi refers to Tulasi-manjari, often thought of as the nickname of Rati Manjari. Vrinda-sakhi isn't called Tulasi in the lila.

sorry I thought so but then... *sigh* you know Vrindadevi and Radharani had that argument before, and... and... yes, of course Tulasi manjari, not Vrinda devi... sorry I had a panic moment... biggrin.gif

Sorry for that! Stupid me! smile.gif

Could you tell us a little more about Vrindavan Das?

He's originally from Kazakhstan if memory serves, I believe 30 something of age. My gurubhai. He's been living in Vrindavan for several years now, I forget how many in total. I believe he was originally at Raman Reti with ISKCON, and also did some painting with Jadurani. After that, he went around here and there, and spent some time with the Nimbarkis as well, and finally ended up receiving initiation from our Baba. Married since a year or so. An interesting fellow all in all. We've spent long evenings talking about just about everything you can imagine, he lived upstairs from us when we stayed at Radha Kund. Now he is staying downtown Vrindavan, somewhere near Banke Bihari last I heard.
