Krishna and Radha Greeting Card
This greeting card features an image of the Hindu god Krishna, one of the most beloved deities in India, along with his consort, Raddha. Krishna is worshipped by millions of people in India and Nepal, and he is the symbol of devotion, love, joy and music.It is believed that Vishnu, the sustainer of the universe, would have 10 incarnations that would come down to earth to help mankind. Krishna is considered to be the 8th avatar (or incarnation). He is the hero of the Indian classic work, the Mahabharata, and preached a philosophy of proper action, over ritual and prayer, as the path to heaven. Since Krishna is the patron saint of music, he is often seen with a flute, with his consort, Radah, dancing nearby. Other times, he is depicted as the protecotor of cows, and is seen surrounded by Gopinis (milkmaids). The devotion seen between Krishna and Radha symbolizes the relation of love between the soul and god.
