Loving Krishna

Directed by Allen Moore & Akos Ostor, Produced by Robert Gardner & Akos Ostor
1985, 40 min.

Loving Krishna looks at the sacred cult of Krishna in one of its local manifestations, and explores the continuing link between worship, arts and crafts, bazaar exchanges, and everyday life. Describing two major festivals—the celebration of Krishna’s birth, and the great Chariot Festival—Loving Krishna examines the central concepts of Hindu Worship: the ritual offerings to the gods, the role of images in worship, the divine play of the gods, and the meaning of devotion.
