|Caption||The demon Trinavarta assumed the form of a whirlwind, and snatched Krishna from where He was sitting. Trinavarta carried little Krishna into the air and covered the whole land of Gokula (Vrndavana) with dust to cloud everyone's vision. The dust was so dense, it became dark, and people could not see themselves or anyone else. Mother Yasoda could not find Krishna anywhere and she lamented pitifully. When the dust subsided, the gopis found Mother Yasoda crying, and seeing that Krishna was missing, they also began to cry.|
Krishna, in the hands of Trinavarta, made Himself heavier and heavier. Trinavarta thought Krishna to be like a mountain and he tried to throw Him down, but Krishna simply held on with His arms around the demons neck. With Krishna grasping his throat, the demon choked. His eyes popping out, Trinavarta lost his life and fell to the ground. The gopis picked up Krishna from the demons chest, and delivered Him, unharmed, to Mother Yasoda. Everyone was very happy.
Painted in 1977.
