Description
About the Book

Every time I experience negativity in the world, and in myself, every time I encounter jealousy, rage, and frustration manifesting as violation and violation and violence, I hear, or read, the Hanuman Chalisa, Composed over four composed over four hundred year ago by Tulsidas, its simple words ( in Awadhi, a dialect of Hindi) and its simple metre (Dohas and chaupais) musically evoke the mythology, history, and mystery of Hanuman, the much-loved Hindu deity through whom Vedic Wisdom Reaches the masses.

As verse follows Verse, my frightened crumpled mind begins to expand with knowledge and insight, and my fait in humanity, both within and without, is restored.

Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
Steven, USA
