Event Description

In this talk, based on his recent book, A Sacred Journey, Professor BN Goswamy decodes a series of hitherto un-identified Pahari paintings from the Kedara Kalpa manuscript, a relatively unknown Shaivite text from Rajasthan. The paintings depict the journey of five pilgrims through uncharted territory to have a darshan of Shiva in Kailash. From snow-capped frontiers to golden stretches of land, the uncommon resolve in the minds of pilgrims to the feeling of triumph at the end of the expedition, traverse a range of geographical, emotional, and spiritual terrains in this illustrative lecture. In collaboration with the Museum of Art & Photography (MAP) Thumbnail- The sadhakas drink from a sacred stream and offer homage to a linga, The Ashley Crawford collection Hero- Shiva in the guise of an old man leads the sadhakas and they have a darshan of him and Parvati, The Ashley Crawford collection
