Looking for Sri Balarama

by Jayadeva das

Posted March 27, 2010


I'm looking for an image of Sri Balarama that was painted by Muralidhara dasa (Srila Prabhupada disciple). It's similar in style to this painting of Sri Krishna by him (at right).

I used to have an 8x10 photo print of the Sri Balarama image, but have since lost it and now I can't find it anywhere! Has anyone out there ever seen it before? Does anyone know where I could purchase a print of it? Or does anyone have it and would be A) willing to scan it (at a high resolution) and email it to me or B) sell it to me or C) make a high quality color photocopy for me?

I've searched all over the internet trying to find it, but with no success. I've also never seen this image of Sri Balarama possessed by any other devotees or seen it in any temples. I even looked for it while in Sri Vrindavan Dhama last year, but to no avail. It seems like one of the rarest and most difficult to find prints. I've even tried contacting Muralidhara prabhu himself, but I only found his name through an art dealer in California (who I never heard back from).

If anyone can help me out, please email me at: nityanandarama@hotmail.com.

Thank you for your time.
