Overview

Krishna shringara is a perennial legacy from the dasham skandha of the Bhagavata Purana, where the romance of Krishna in terms of his lilas and kridas is presented, to the tracks of Jayadeva, Narsinh Mehta, Vallabhacharya, the ashtachhaap kavis of Haveli Sangeet, Chaitanya, Bengal Vaishnava tradition, and the glorious period of Ritikavya. All these poetic streams flow into the river of khayal tradition, which in turn has significantly influenced the growth of khayal bandishes.
Krishna shringara has a unique place in khayal bandishes, where words and music, raga and tala make the bandishes come alive. The paintings of khayal bandishes (Bandishmala) make one feel reminiscent of Ragamala paintings. Khayal bandish travelled orally across centuries from village to temple and palace to proscenium.
The paintings make a sahridaya travel to the supreme realms of Krishna shringara, which ends in shringara bhakti.
