The name 'Kali' has been used generically from antiquity. The different manifestations are for a certain definite purpose and in reality there is one Devi who assumes various forms to fulfil various purposes. Sometimes she assumes a frightening form and sometimes a benevolent form.

Chinnamasta, one of the ten Mahavidyas, is shown standing on the copulating couple of Kamadeva and Rati. The maithuna figure, with Rati on top, is consumed by the fire of desire. A double petalled lotus forms their bed. The dark skinned goddess has snakes coiled around all over her body. Besides the bejeweled crown and necklaces, human heads are strung together to form a garland around her neck as a cluster of human hands form her girdle. Her dark flowing hair gives movement to the otherwise static figure.

Goddess Chinnamasta's position atop the copulating couple defeats what Rati and Kamadeva represent viz. sexual energy and desire, signifying self control.

The brilliant colours in the lower half of the painting are cleverly juxtaposed with dull colours used for the goddess. The background is intentionally coloured in one colour of two hues, so as not to distract the viewer.

Testimonials

Hello Vipin K., thanks a lot for replacing the 4th volume of the Srimad Bhagavatam and sending me a faultless copy of the book so fast. The faulty pagination (missing and mixed up pages) is due to the bookbinding, of course, you are not to blame. Your customer service is excellent. And as your selection of books is extraordinary, I'm already looking forward to the next books that will reach me, perfectly packed and in best condition as always. ;-)

I really found this site to be very well designed, and the number of items amazing. From my careful inspection of the high resolution photos, the quality of work appears to be outstanding.

The statue was delivered today. It is exceedingly beautiful. My thanks to the creator of the statue for such a lovely idol and to yourselves for the great service.

Fantastic service! Delivery in Italy in two days!

Your custom service is great, especially Vipin. Vipin helped me locate a lost package. that was so nice!!!! I love this company. I love the cotton skirts with ruffle on the bottom. I also love how that when we place items in the shopping cart, the computer system allows them to remain in the cart until we are ready to purchase them. They don't disappear like with other on-line stores shopping cart system. Your the Best!!!
Heather Davis, USA
A true treasure vault of Bharatiya samskruti knowledge books! Thanks for this service.
Shashikant, USA
Very nice website, easy to use. Your one of the few Indian website that have an extensive collection of CD's that will ship to America.I think Indian website should expand themselves into the global community China sure has. China's market growth had to do with supply and demand. The same thing could happen to India, you just have to open the doors of India and let it happen. At least you seem to be doing that.
