Prime Minister Narendra Modi was recently gifted a beautiful painting of Lord Krishna at the Guruvayur Temple in Kerala.

What makes this story intriguing is that the artist behind the painting is Jasna Salim

Her artistic journey began at the age of 24 when she was inspired by an image of Unni Kannan in a newspaper.

 They symbolize her devotion to Lord Krishna. She has been gifting these portraits to the renowned Guruvayur Sri Krishna Temple in Thrissur for several years. 

Due to temple customs, as non-Hindus are not allowed inside the shrine, Jasna places her paintings near the hundi or hands them over to the temple staff.

The artist faced opposition from her own community, and her son was allegedly denied permission to attend the local madrasa.

Prime Minister Modi, in his social media post, acknowledged Jasna’s journey in Krishna Bhakti as a testament to the transformative power of devotion.

Jasna’s story is not just about art; it’s about transcending religious boundaries and finding spiritual fulfillment through her passion for Lord Krishna.
