And below her hair; she would put on a garlandand spend a few minutes just gazing into a pond;seeing her reflection and satisfying her desirebefore turning awayand returning the worn garland to her flower basketThe emperor Krishnadevaraya's epic poem Amuktamalyada (Giver of the Worn Garland) depicts the life of the medieval Vaisnava poet-saint Andal; or Goda Devi as she is also known; and her passionate devotion to Lord Visnu.Krishnadevaraya's unique poetic imagination brings to life a celestial world filled with wonder; creativity; humour and vibrant natural beauty. The mundane is made divine and the ordinary becomes extraordinary; the routine activities of daily life become expressive metaphors for heavenly actions; while the exalted gods of heaven are re-imagined as living persons. The poet's ability to see divinity in the most commonplace activities is an extension of his powerful belief that god is everywhere; in everything; at all times.
