Rama's Labyrinth: A Biographical Novel (Women of Determination and Courage)
Sound waves bounced in the enclosed space. Rama could hardly think. Her heart pounded. And then she saw him. Lord Krishna playing his flute, just as he had when he was a young man. The image’s staring eyes seemed less interested in his worshippers than music. His cheeks with their circular designs were full of air. Rama couldn’t take her eyes away. Sounds receded. It seemed as if she and Lord Krishna were alone. This must be what happened with the cow herders’ wives she thought before she lost consciousness.
