A kumbha or a kalash is a pitcher placed by the side of the deity before different religious rites. Symbolically, it stands for mother goddess in general or goddess Lakshmi in particular.

The creator of this batik work has given prime importance to ornamentation. The ochre background is resplendent with black criss-cross lines. The space above and below the oval frame has been used by flowers & leaves. Inside the frame lies the kumbha, an earthen pot painted white in colour. The kumbha is generally kept filled with water and that water is said to be the divine essence. The mouth of the kumbha has a lotus flower and above that emerges large leaves. The leaves kept at the mouth of the kumbh are generally of five specific species. The flower in between the leaves is for ornamentation purpose.

On either side of the kumbha are prominently placed eyes. Symbolically, they represent the eyes of the goddess who keeps an eye on the devotees and keep them from harm or ill luck.

Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
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.
Bernd, Spain
