Puranjana Becomes a Woman
oil on canvas (1996)
74 x 100 cm

Scriptural reference:

Puranjana was ruling over a vast kingdom. But due to his being too much engaged in materialistic activities he was thinking about the wellbeing of his wife at the moment of death. Therefore he became a woman in his next life.
After some time Krishna appeared in the form of a brahamana in front of Vidarbhi (Puranjana) and instructed her how to achieve the goal of life – going back home to Godhead.

(Srimad-Bhagavatam 4.28.28)
