Every year thousands of pilgrims travel to Brindavan, the village where Krishna is said to have lived as a child. There, in one of north India's great spiritual centres, they witness a series of religious dramas called raslilas, whose central roles are performed by children. By translating four plays that collectively span this cycle, John Hawley provides a lively perspective on the mythology of Krishna as Hindus experience it today.

Preface More Than One Book has been written to tell the story of Krishna, but in this one he will speak for himself, as he does year in and year out to audiences all over India. Only a small proportion of India’s vast population has ever been literature and even those who could read have never been satisfied that a tradition can be learned from the age of a book.

Talk about At Play with Krishna: Pilgrimage Dramas From Brindavan


Moonshaper
Every year thousands of pilgrims travel to Brindavan, the village where Krishna is said to have lived as a child. There, in one of north India's great spiritual centres, they witness a series of religious dramas called raslilas, whose central roles are performed by children. By translating four plays that collectively span this cycle, John Hawley provides a lively perspective on the mythology of Krishna as Hindus experience it today.

this work is exceptional in its combination of sound scholarship, sensitivity to the depths of Indian symbolism and an ability to infect us with the delight of Krishna's playfulness.
Raniconne
John Stratton Hawley has excellently captured the essence of the Vrindavan experience, with an authenticity not commonly found in scholarly works. The author has absorbed and communicated the nuances of the devotees' experience in graceful yet simple style. The casual or serious student of Hinduism would find the modest price of this book an excellent investment toward his or her understanding of Vaishnavite tradition.
