Description
Introduction

Vaishnava means a devotee of Krishna or Vishnu. A pure Vaishnava automatically possesses all saintly qualities. Of such persons some are satisfied with their own spiritual development and devote themselves to personal worship of the lord. Others feeling great compassion for the fallen souls work tirelessly to deliver them.

Our saintly heroes set the ideal example of how to follow the godly way of life and they are therefore called acharyas (those who teach by example). They form a line of spiritual masters who descend from the spiritual world just for our benefit.

By reading of their uncommon activities we can learn about the character of pure devotes and understand how they dedicate themselves to the mission of God. By attentively studying such wonderful stories and pastimes one naturally loses taste for worldly affairs.

This is the mercy of great saints. Let us pray they will always be present in our minds and hearts and guide us book to the shelter of the spiritual world.

Regarding the lives of the saints sometimes different versions of the same story are told. A good example is that if the anklebell pastime in the life of Shyamananda Pandit. In making a choice we have chosen purely on an arbitrary basis as our main objective is simply to glorify the acharyas whose pastimes are as numerous as the leaves humbly present them herein.

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 !
