A few years ago I purchased a carved necklace fm Tibet with all these symbols and it called to me today to find out what they all mean since I am immersing myself in practical Buddhism, such a noble and radiant way of Life!!
I have really learned a lot from reading your articles

Thank you so much for yet another wonderful article. I have learned so much about Eastern philosophy, iconography, and theology through reading your monthly articles. I keep a file of them, and often refer to one or another in preparing presentations at the Interfaith Center I help direct.
Please continue your very important contribution to the education and enlightenment of human kind.
Once again, you have done us proud, to put forth another well written discourse. I hope you are one with the great mind, the universe, brahman, only coming out to illuminate, like a firefly, a dark night in the world of men.
Shine on, my friend.

I had to write to tell you how much I look forward to receiving the Exotic India newsletter. I always learn something, am always inspired, and am always appreciative, even though I have not shared my thanks with you until today.
What you are doing has real value. Thank you for your efforts! Many blessing to you.
Thank you for providing such a wonderful, informative news letter.I am SO glad I discovered your site. Thanks again
At this time I can't afford to buy the lovely things you offer, but I want to thank you for keeping me on your mailing list and sending me these wonderful descriptions of the mystic religious and cultural aspects of India. They are interesting, well written, and help me to see things from the outside and understand them a little more. It is very true that it is easier to emerge from a maze when part of you can hover overhead to see the whole problem. I started as a simple doll collector, but find your articles add a richness to the aspect of the dolls and my own life. Thanks again.
Wonderful article...thank you very much..will send it on to others who might appreciate it...sincerely,
I have been reading your current and past articles and am very impressed about the reasearch and text you have produced.

I also enjoy going to the web page to see whats new....always something beautiful to see and marvol at. Have to compliment the webmaster for keeping the page fresh and exotic! What a beautiful web site!
I wish you guys would do an article on the Guru and the Guru path. It is so misunderstood in the West. Your articles are so informed and well put together.
Thank you so much.
Thank you for taking the time to write these. I always read them in the morning after my meditation and ponder on them before my day.
Having read and enjoyed your "Article of the Month" for several years, I just want to thank and congratulate you for these excellent texts. As a journalist specializing in religious questions I have learned much - especially about Buddhism and the different facets of Hinduism.
Now I have a request (or a proposal if you like): Would it be possible for you to publish something about the bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara/Chenrezig/Kwan Yin? He/she is one of the most fascinating figures in the buddhist pantheon and I would be very glad to learn more about "He (she) who hears the cries of the world".
I was very surprised, yet very pleased, to begin receiving articles from Exotic India as well as access to previous ones. You have provided me with a tremendous spiritual gift.

I would like you to know how much I enjoy your emailings. Often, the writing reminds me of things I already know but forget to notice day by day as I get caught up in the mundane. Thanks!
I love reading your monthly articles, they are inspiring! Why is it that India is the cradle of so many world religions? Buddhism, Hinduism and Sikhism to name but three!
Best wishes and kind regards,
CONGRATULATIONS, a wonderful effort, a beautiful experience to go into your site.
Your articles are great to read as I am especially interested in mythology. I am now trying to learn more about Hinduism and its philosophies. I would love to take up the hindu religion but as an older caucasian woman I would most probly find this very difficult. Anyway I love your artwork and the articles you write.
Thank you very much, for sending me this new info. Most beautiful and interesting! Please keep in touch and keep up the good work!
I enjoyed this very much. Thank you for sending it. I will definitely use it as a resource for documentation. I am an avid historic re-enactor, and I am also a Middle Eastern Dance student/teacher. Thanks again
I love your frequent newsletter on different topics with all the illustrations. I have learned so much of the Indian Culture from your newsletters. Please keep sending more to me, I am always excited to open your mail the first. Thankyou
I found your website while searching for an image of Shiva. When I signed up for your articles, I had no idea how wonderful they would be. Well written, informative, and thoughtful is just the beginning. Thank you so much for putting so much time and effort into what you do. I have love reading them, sharing them, and I look forward to receiving them every month!

Your articles/News Letters are superb with great details. I would appreciate if you can post any information on Meditation.
Ram Taju, Saudi Arabia
Thank you so much, people of Exotic India...
Your articles are always extremely interesting and very much appreciated...
Best regards and wishes for all of you,
Your monthly articles on philosophy and iconography are some of the best I've been able to find since searching over the last few years. Always very clearly and logically explained in their spiritual significance and deep philosophical upderpinning rather than just superficial and sentimental devotional tracts any New Age shop has. Look forward to them every month and print them off to save.
There is no way I can thank you enough for the time you take to put together the beautiful articles with the links to the pictures. Your writing is so beautiful and easy to understand that I print the articles out so I can read them at breaks during the work day when I need a "reading meditation" for help in centering.
Thank you again for your contribution to the raising of human consciousness.
May you always walk aware of the serenity and love of the cosmos.
I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your articles on India. I read each one and many I have printed out to save as I am deeply interested in the culture, philosophies and arts of your country. I visited South India last winter and hope to get back to explore North India next year. I am an artist and am doing a series of paintings that have resulted from my love of India. I have 2 works in a show this month that are my exploration into the complex dichotomy of Shiva and his Dance.
Again thank you for the great articles and for your fine company.
