Pressestimmen

“Scholarly and insightful on the meanings of these legends, The Complete Life of Krishna is a strongly recommended pick for religious history collections focusing on Hinduism and eastern religions.” (Midwest Book Review, August 2012)

“Drawing from the Bhagavad Gita and other sacred texts, the author explains how Krishna became a mahayogi, the greatest of all yogis, with complete mastery over himself and nature. On whatever level you receive these stories, they are a valuable meditative tool, full of delight and wisdom.” (Whole Life Times, August 2012)

“Vanamali’s new book will entrance readers as a first introduction to the immortal Lord of Love, or as a cherished opportunity to once again dip into the nectar of the Lord’s lila, his play on earth.” (Light of Consciousness, October 2012)

“Recommended for new age and spirituality collections alike, this draws from a range of sources, from India’s oral tradition to the Bhagavata Purana, Gita, Mahabharata and more, exploring Krishna’s life, how he became the greatest of all yogis, and how he evolved to the position of a divine ruler. Any collection strong in Indian spirituality needs this in-depth coverage.” (Midwest Book Review, November 2012)

Kurzbeschreibung

The first book to cover Krishna’s entire life, from his childhood pranks to his final powerful acts in the Mahabharata war

• Draws from the Bhagavad Purana, the Bhagavad Gita, the Mahabharata, and India’s sacred oral tradition

• Shows how the stories of Krishna’s life are expressed with such simplicity and humor that they enable anyone--man, woman, or child--to see the wisdom of his teachings

• Provides a valuable meditative tool that allows the lessons of these stories to illuminate from within

Krishna, one of the most beloved characters of the Hindu pantheon, has been portrayed in many lights: a god-child, a prankster, a model lover, a divine hero, an exemplary ruler, and the Supreme Being. In The Complete Life of Krishna, Vanamali, a leading Krishna expert from a long line of prominent Krishna devotees, provides the first book in English or Sanskrit to cover the complete range of the avatar’s life.

Drawing from the Bhagavad Purana, the Bhagavad Gita, the Mahabharata, and India’s sacred oral tradition, Vanamali shares stories from Krishna’s birth in a dungeon and early days as a merry trickster in Vrindavana, through his time as divine ruler at Dwaraka, to his final powerful acts as the hero Arjuna’s charioteer and guru in the Kurukshetra war. She explains how Krishna became a mahayogi, the greatest of all yogis, and attained complete mastery over himself and nature. By integrating the hero-child with the mahayogi, the playful lover with the divine ruler, Vanamali shows how the stories of Krishna’s life are expressed with such simplicity and humor that they enable anyone--man, woman, or child--to see the wisdom of his teachings.

This complete biography of the man who was also a god provides a valuable meditative tool allowing Krishna’s lessons to illuminate from within.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well Worth Reading 9. November 2012
Von sfpowell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Vanamali's work on the Life of Sri Krishna is ever so gracefully enchanting and revealling. This is the first book I've read on the life of Sri Krishna, and I admire Vanamali's insight and consise explanations on an Avatar that more and more of us are becoming aware of.

Vanamali describes the life and actions of Sri krishna without being dogmatic and in a way that can melt your heart.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beautiful, Well-Written Book 19. Februar 2014
Von Della - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I wanted to read about Krishna's life from start to finish. When I saw this book and its author, Vanamali, I knew there was no way I'd be disappointed. Vanamali's books are terrific.

As usual, Vanamali delivers.

The Complete Life of Krishna will take you through Krishna's life. The book reads like a good novel, not like a collection of myths gathered in an academic, dry way. Not only does Vanamali tell these stories in an entertaining manner, she explains the esoteric meaning behind the myths, which are as important as the stories themselves. It's a great story when Krishna cavorts with the gopis and then disappears, leaving them distraught, but it's illuminating when we learn the reason why is the gopis let their egos get between them and Krishna, and thus he disappeared.

There were portions of this book that were genuinely funny, and others that were genuinely sad. Once I finished it, I kind of wished I could erase my memory of the book so I could enjoy it as a new reader again.

I can't recommend this book highly enough. If you're interested in Krishna at all, you have to get this book ASAP.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Must 18. Juni 2014
Von Shari's Peculiar Fascination - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
A must for Krishna Consciousness or anyone curious about Krishna. Vanamali writes in a style so easy for Westerners [like myself!] to understand. This is a wonderful companion to Krishna's divine message in The Bhagavad-gita and The Mahabharata. She really emphasizes Lord Krishna's humanity, as well as divinity... so much so, I laughed and cried. I can't say enough good points about her writing. No matter what-- or how many--books and stories on Krishna you read, this one stands on its own.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Not just a book to read but an experience to imbibe 10. August 2014
Von Rathnakar - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Humble obeisance to Lord Krishna. Humble obeisance to Mata Vanamali.
The book is written in simple language. The incidents are mind capturing and the role of Lord Krishna that is highlighted is enrapturing. The small commentaries by the author highlighting the greatness of The Lord and the inherent meaning along with each incident gives life to the book and hence is an experience. In all there are no words to explain the bliss derived from the first reading. Lord willing hope to read it many more times.
