Devi, in her various incarnations is mother, faithful wife, a warrior, delivering all that her devotees ask of her. Parvati is one goddess who finds no mention in Vedic literature but later, was widely worshipped as Shiva's consort.

When Parvati was a young girl, a sage came to her house and informed her that one day she would marry an ascetic whose body would be covered with ash. The prophecy came true. In this kalamkari, the artist depicts the marriage procession of Shiva & Parvati. The couple, seated on the bull Nandi, proceeds towards Kailash, the adobe of Shiva. Preceded by the ganas playing the musical instruments lost in the revelry of the celebrations, Shiva & Parvati have the expression of exhilaration on their faces. On either side of them can be seen Vishnu & Brahma, the god of preservation and creation respectively. Celestial dancers following the procession complete the picture of joy. The union of Shiva and Parvati has a great significance, as implied in the Puranas. And as art draws heavily from literature, the event is frequently depicted in every form of Indian art.

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!
Francesca Verna
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.
