Guide: Prabhavati

This is a guide to Prabhavati: The Asura Princess (Volume 761). You can find it at Amazon.

Bizzell Reserves call number: PN 6790 .I443 A437 v.761

Summary: This is a story about how Krishna and Indra, together with Krishna's son Pradyumna, defeated the mighty asura Vajranabha. In the course of events, Pradyumna uses his magical shape-shifting powers (learn more in Pradyumna) to enter Vajranabha's palace in disguise, and he marries Prabhavati, the asura's daughter. You can learn more about this story from this lovely video about a dance performance of the story by the Raadha-Kalpa Dance Company in Bangalore, India.
