Buddha fasting, Buddha in 'bhumisparsha-mudra', Buddha's 'dharmachakra-pravartana', teaching Buddha, Buddha's 'Nirvana' and thousand Buddha have exceptional significance in Buddhist classical iconography. These forms of his iconography are not mere artistic innovations of his life theme but depict the turning points and some of the cardinal events of his life. The earth touching posture or his 'bhumisparsha-mudra' constitutes the exact central point to the episode of Buddha's attainment of enlightenment. It depicts the phase when seated under the Pipal tree he was engaged in his penance and was almost on the verge of attaining Enlightenment. As always, it alarmed the forces of Evil, which fed on darkness or ignorance and delighted in obstructing the process of enlightening. Hence, Evil, personified as Mara and armed with horror, fear, temptation, 'Kama' and beauty, attacked Buddha and tried on him all its weapons. When nothing worked Mara created confusion all around. There rose voices that said, 'Gautam, you are vanished'. Mara aimed at confusing him but set deep within him and unaffected by whatever happened beyond, Buddha quietly lowered his right arm and extended its middle finger to reach the Earth. He touched the Mother Earth and invoked her to witness that whatever came his way, he did not astray from his path. He thus defeated Evil and a little after there emerged divine light and Gautam was the Enlightened, the Buddha.

This 'Padmasana' image of Buddha is in meditative posture, which is its prime theme and the basic character of the moment which it depicts. Mara's attack and other related activity are only a passing phase. Hence, but for his right hand lowered to touch the mother Earth, his entire form manifests him in his meditative demeanour, which his left hand so absolutely symbolises. Broad forehead, sharp nose, cute small lips, pointed chin and semi-opened lotus like eyes define the aesthetic beauty of his face. His shoulders are sturdy. The left half of his torso is covered by fine sash marked over the eight auspicious symbols of Buddhism.

This sculpture was cast in the central Indian city of Aligarh.

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.
Donald, USA
Thank you for providing such an excellent service i recently ordered a number of books on the life and teachings of Sri Chaitanya and Sri Nityananda and Their associates, by various authors. it's very nice to find such a wide variety of Vaishnava literatures by various authors, all together on this one site, and you have made the selection and payment for the items you are selling, very easy. Shipping is included in the cost of the items - great arrangement, plus I received my order very quickly Thank you!
