Krishna's Face - an essential subject

Jump to: navigation, search

Krishna (God's Name) is the all-attractive Supreme Person, and as such every limb of His body is supremely attractive. Krishna is called Madana-mohan, the enchanter (mohana) of Cupid (Madana), because He conquers the mind of Cupid. Krishna's perfect beauty is His conjugal attraction. Such perfect conjugal beauty eternally exists only in God's form of Krishna, whereas His other five opulences are present in some of God's other forms. The superexcellent beauty of Krishna is such that the goddess of fortune, the constant companion of Nārāyaṇa (a form of God), gave up His association and engaged herself in penance to gain the association of Krishna. It is from that beauty that all other beautiful things emanate. The cardinal nature of this beauty is its supreme sweetness. Of all the limbs of Krishna, His face is considered the most beautiful. The Vedic hymn known as Kāma-gāyatrī poetically describes the face of Krishna as the king of all moons. The sweetest part of His face is His smile. In the Kṛṣṇa-karṇāmṛta, a book written by a devotee, Krishna’s body, face and smile have been described as sweet, sweeter and sweetest. Such beauty is the essence of all opulences and is appreciated only in Goloka Vrindavana (God's original, primeval abode) and nowhere else.
