Show Summary Details


This book started with the appearance of the black bee, which was accepted by the Mahārāj jī and his devotees as a manifestation of Krishna. The question to see divinity and the question of whether what was seen was divinity can be addressed only within context. The embodiments of Krishna continued to be served in the temples by the families who served them. One doesn't have to be a priest within the inner sanctum to participate in Krishna's activities. Mahārāj jī had further broadened the opportunity for darśana by conflating performance and service both inside and outside the temple. But the seeing and the believing are up to each person.

Keywords: Krishna; Mahārāj jī; darsana; Goswami; līlā
