Ganesha Traverses The Countryside

Ganesha Traverses The Countryside

Ganesha Traverses The Countryside

No amount of expression is enough for the appeal of Ganesha. India's most loved boy-deity, He is the son of Shiva and Durga, so the very splendour of the grahas rests on His brow. His beauteous face is aglow with wisdom (tejasvi), painted a pale tint of red in this watercolour. The flaps of His adorable elephant ears are studded with gold rings punctuated by pearls, while a string of pearls with bejewelled motifs holds His mop of curly black hair in place. The composure of countenance is one of supreme bliss; no wonder both Ganesha and the creature He mythically derives His head from are worshipped in temples in India.

Ganesha is not just a divine child with a love for laddoos, a plateful of which is in one of His six hands. He is the master (isha) of the Hindu celestial army - Rudra's troops and attendants and acolytes (gana). The characteristic beauty of His form has been captured in the sahasranama (litany of a thousand names), which in turn artist Kailash Raj has portrayed with consummate devotion. His body is plump from all the sweetmeats He indulges in. He is draped in resplendent silk dhotis and layers of glittering jewels that cascade down His soft torso. His six arms, bejewelled all the way from the upper arm to the fingers, each hold an implement of iconographic significance. Note the pristine janeu that He is wearing across His chest, indicative of Brahminhood.

One of Ganesha's thousand names is Gudagulpha, which means that His ankles are so thick they are hardly perceptible. In this watercolour, had it not been for the studded gold anklets His ankles would indeed have been that way! He walks across lush green fields dotted with tufts of tropical blooms, accompanied by none other than the mouse, His vahana. The roseate background gives away the twilight hour, and sets off the pale white glow of His halo to perfection.

Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
Thank you for your wonderful service and amazing book selection. We are long time customers and have never been disappointed by your great store. Thank you and we will continue to shop at your store
Michael, USA
I am extremely happy with the two I have already received!
