Krishna is considered the Supreme Lord and the first vibration of conciousness. In various temples and scriptures he is shown playing a flute to his admirers. He was the love of sixteen thousand milkmaids. His one true love is Radha and their love together symbolizes the union of the supreme being with nature.
His kingdom is believed to be under water on the bays of India. There is still land that is not under water that have ruins of the off skirts of his town and they are filled with deer. Deer are believed to be housing his energy on the remnants of his land.
The Tiger is the locomotive for Chandraghanta. She is one of the nine Durgas worshipped in the Navarati Festival which falls in Ashwin (September-October). A Durga is a goddess that destroys evil and preserves religion or righteousness. Chandraghanta is worshipped on the third day of the festival and holds various weapons to make her powerful and strong. The Tiger aides her in decapitating foes and demons.
The Saint and Her Lion
Love does not obey. This saint represents the energy in the female rebel culture that defies laws and specifically follows the heart. She is ordained in tattoos from jewelry to faint speckles showing where the prana (oxygen or air) and chi (life energy) in your body flow; while she is smoking a cigar packed with the worlds most hallucinogenic herbs. On her chest is ancient Indian sanskrit “YA” which in Hindi philosophy is the bija sound that emanates from the heart. So if you ever are feeling lonely and need love chant “YAM!” The beautiful cat next to her is an ancient lion that serves as the protector of her female form.
