Book Vishvarupa – Paintings on the Cosmic Form of Krishna–Vasudeva by Neena Ranjan

Vishvarupa – Paintings on the Cosmic Form of Krishna – Vasudeva by Neena Ranjan showcases paintings based on the cosmic form that Shri Krishna revealed to Arjuna in the Kurukshetra in the Mahabharata and which is detailed in the Bhagavad Gita. Most of the Vishwarupa Paintings included in the book are from 17th to 20th century.From the Foreword in the book by B.N.

Sayings of Shirdi Sai Baba

Let the world go topsy-turvy, you remain where you are. Look on calmly at the show of all things passing before you. Demolish the wall of difference that separates you from Me; and then the road for our meeting will be clear and open. The sense of differentiation, as I and Thou, is the barrier that keeps away the disciple from his Master, and unless that is destroyed the state of Union or At-One-ment is not possible.You need not go far, or anywhere in search of Me. Barring your name and form, there exists in you, as well as in all beings, a sense of Being or Consciousness of Existence. That is Myself. Knowing this, you see Me inside yourself as well as in all beings. If you practice this, you will realize all pervasiveness and thus attain oneness with Me.Shirdi Sai Baba
