Vishnu’s Avatars at the Brooklyn Museum

| |

“Vishnu: Hinduism’s Blue-Skinned Savior” is a new show at the Brooklyn Museum. The Times says about the exhibit, “it takes a while to radiate its full devotional glow over a show that is gratifyingly large but also dauntingly crowded with ideas and information.”

We must see this exhibit, especially because we have a section named “Avatars of the Priest” in our new book, “God’s Favorite Prayers,” beginning on page 99. The Times says this about the show,

…Judeo-Christian tradition has one God. But in Hinduism multiplicity is the name of the spiritual game, and Vishnu has taken full advantage of this by descending to earth in several very different forms.
