EXCERPTS: KRISHNA IN MURALS

   
      Krishna, the dark god, enacting his leelas, and evoking bhakti rasa in his devotees, is the most popular and perhaps among all Hindu gods closest to the heart of the masses. These leelas are abundantly depicted in all forms of art, especially in paintings... on the walls of sacred and secular places.
