Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

'It is man's nature to long for that which is most beautiful: the gentlest of sound, the most radiant color, the sweetest scent, his whole body for that which is most tender and full of grace. The sound of Krishna's flute is gentlest. His body, glowing like a blue jewel, is most radiant. His scent is sweetest. And the grace of his posture and the tenderness of his love are the most soothing, and most exciting, to the heart which yearns.' -From the introduction by Edward C. Dimock, Jr.
