This rare painting invites wonder at India’s extraordinary artistic heritage and with it you will feel the magic and spiritual enlightenment of Yoga. The art of Yoga constitutes a visual archive that attempts to capture one or several of its attributes, as a philosophical school, a Hindu tradition, a spiritual science and an exercise regimen.
Ragamala paintings illustrate poetic verses associated with musical modes, images of yogis & yoginis infuse music and painting, love and pleasure with divinity, lifting aesthetic delectation into a more serious register. Traditionally in India, musicians do not perform written compositions. Instead, a musician’s every performance is a unique improvisation on a “framework” of musical patterns called a raga or ragini. A raga or ragini is defined by the mood it conveys. A complete set of ragas and raginis was called a ragamala (or garland of ragas).
In the featured art, Bhupali Ragini’s longing in separation makes her a model for the young prince and the sage who listen to her song: “Bhupali, belonging to the quiescent mood, a woman in the splendor of beauty, lovely, with a face like the moon, pained by the separation, remembers her beloved. Quiescence is implied by the balance of elements symmetrically arrayed on either side of the heroine and by the gentle grays of the starry night. A crescent moon, as if extracted from the gleaming white of her dress, recalls the verses associated with this ragini. The crescent also recalls Shiva, for whom it is emblematic, implying that the yogini’s anguished separation is also a devotional longing for God.
