Pahari Portrait


Recommended Posts

GurFateh !

This pahari portrait of Guru Gobind Singh (circa 1780-1800 Govt. Museum Chandigarh) is especially for those who thought the Mandi portrait was "ugly" - maybe this is more to your taste ?

- I do not have the words to say how beautiful this painting is - it brings to mind the words of Bhai Nand Lal Goya ;

" Deeno duniya, dar kamade aan pari rukhsar ma

Har do alam, kimat yak taare mueh yaar ma"

(My faith and action, both are prisoners of the fairy-faced.

The present and the here-after weigh less than a single hair of my Beloved. -translation B P L Bedi)
