Every year thousands of pilgrims travel to Brindavan, the village where Krishna is said to have lived as child, There, in one of north India's great spiritual centres, they witness a series of religious dramas called ras lilas, whose central roles are performed by children. By translating four plays that collectively span this cycle, John Hawley provides a lively perspective on the mythology of Krishna as Hindus experience it today. His book contains an opening chapter describing the setting in which the plays are enacted and relating them to the religious and emotional world of viewers adn performers, a substantial introduction to each of the four plays, and forty-eight evocative photographs.Printed Pages:
