Krishna Brings the Cows and Cowherd Boys Back to Life

One day, during the summer season, the boys and cows became very thirsty and began to drink the water of the Yamuna. However, the serpent Kaliya was residing in the Yamuna and had made the water poisonous by his venom. The boys and cows were visibly affected immediately after drinking. Then, suddenly, they fell to the ground, apparently dead. Krishna, who is the life of all lives, cast His merciful glance over them, and they all regained consciousness. They could understand that they had died and Krishna had restored their life; and they appreciated the mystic power of Krishna, who is the master of all mystics.Painted in 1976.
