Raga Komel Re Asawari


Raga Asawari: 17th Century ragamala painting

On the summit of the sandalwood mount
robed in the peacock's plumes
and with a splendid necklace
strung with pearls and ivory,
the variegated one draws the serpent
to herself from the sandalwood tree.
This proud one wears it as a bracelet,
her body ablaze with dark splendor.
