The role played by Krishna Vaasudeva in establishing dharma and righteousness in Bharatvarsha, is all encompassing. The essence of the 'Philosophy of Life', as enunciated by Lord Krishna to the warrior Arjuna in the Bhagavad Gita, is one of the most important works of human civilization--a guiding document for all of mankind. In addition to his godly stature, Lord Krishna has been the subject of legends and literature, political and theosophical discussions, controversies and conflicts. His image has been moulded in the minds of believers and skeptics, poets and artists, reflecting the tenor of each age and time. As a consequence, it is difficult to separate the historical Krishna from the mythical and spiritual Krishna. Under the layers of the divine Krishna, the avatar and incarnation, the historical Krishna encapsulates the story of a man of exceptional qualities and a model for all times. This book brings to the reader this extraordinary man, a consummate statesman and nation builder, a warrior and teacher, a philosopher and mystic--a unique persona which is man's empirical understanding of the divine form.Printed Pages: 488.
