Durga Kosha is intended to be a comprehensive work on the Goddess Durga: mythology relating to Durga which is found in our Agama texts and iconographic manual and the worship details and rituals contained in our kalpas and puja patalas. Durga is a popular deity in our country, and her puja is extensive as well as household worship of Durga is prevalent. An account of the culture elements in iconography and worship would therefore be welcome not only to the students on Indology but also to the general public.

Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
