This is the first book on the magnificent subject of Vatapatrashayi--Krishna reclining on a banyan leaf. Its meaning is discerned through a study of narration on it in Sanskrit literature, as well as in Tamil hymns of the Alvars, Bhakti poets of south India. The immortal sage Markandeya has a vision of the Lord in the form of a child at the time of the dissolution of the universe. The book traces this remarkable theme as depiction in temple sculpture from 9th century and in painting from 15th century, presenting pictures.
