Krishna, one of the most beloved characters of the Hindu pantheon, has been portrayed in many lights: a god-child, a prankster, a model lover, a divine hero, an exemplary ruler and the Supreme Being. In THE COMPLETE LIFE OF KRISHNA, Vanamali provides the first book in English to cover the complete range of the avatar's life.

Drawing from the Bhagavad Purana, the Bhagavad Gita, the Mahabharata and India's sacred oral tradition, Vanamali shares stories from Krishna's birth in a dungeon and early days as a merry trickster in Vrindavana, through his time as divine ruler at Dwaraka, to his final powerful acts as the hero Arjuna's charioteer and guru in the Kurukshetra war. She explains how Krishna became a mahayogi, the greatest of all yogis, and attained complete mastery over himself and nature. By integrating the hero-child with the mahayogi, the playful lover with the divine ruler, Vanamali shows how the stories of Krishna's life are expressed with such simplicity and humour that they enable anyone - man, woman or child - to see the wisdom of his teachings.

This complete biography of the man who was, also, a god provides a valuable meditative tool allowing Krishna's lessons to illuminate from within.
