Loving Devotion: Visions of Vishnu Exhibition Description September 5, 2014 - March 21, 2015 at the Brigham Young University Museum of Art Featuring a variety of exquisite art objects from the Indian subcontinent, Loving Devotion: Visions of Vishnu illuminates the rich heritage and symbolism of Hindu worship in the lives of believers, immersing viewers in the beliefs and culture of one of the worlds oldest and largest religions.Focusing on images of Vishnu and Krishna that span centuries, the exhibition explores how bhakti (the practice of fervent, impassioned devotion to deity) influences the lives and worship of Hindu people and reveals the depth and intimacy of their relationship with the Divine.Indeed, building a relationship with God is at the core of lifes purpose for the devoted believer. Both Vishnu, the Preserver, and his incarnation, Krishna, are highly revered deities that have been the focus of significant bhakti worship. Through powerful images of these Gods inscribed on stone, in bronze or in paintings, worshippers and viewers alike are invited to learn that God is love and not fear, and understand how worship can evolve from practice to joyful experience of immense love and devotion.Loving Devotion was originally organized by the Newark Museum.
