Your newsletter is a wonderful idea! I fear I am merely a "window shopper" in your gallery, but your articles are most informative! You gain much merit by your service in educating the public about the significance of this sacred art. May this work also bring you much joy and prosperity!
Your articles are always written so eloquently with Divine Wisdom. Thank you for your work. I look forward to reading it every month. God Bless You.
I just wanted to say thank you , what beautiful art work and love the stories , I have very much enjoyed both and learned a little too. Thank you again
Having perused through your website from time to time over the past couple of weeks, I simply had to write and compliment you on your Article of the month feature. You have a tremendous talent to make some otherwise very heavy subjects readable hence easily accessible to the every day person who may know zero on the many topics you write about. Thank you.
I thought youd like to know that both my children (they are 10 & 13yrs old respectively) have used your articles as research materials for their school projects on religion. Thats just how readable your articles are.
Keep up the wonderful work, your website is a tremendous benefit to people worldwide.
I just wanted to thank you for the beautiful and inspiring articles that accompany your site. I love the care, depth and clarity with which they are written. You are doing a great service to us all, and I am grateful.
Shanti, Schlama, Shalom, Salaam
I really appreciate and want to thank you guys for sending me your articles and information!!!!!
CONGRATULATIONS, a wonderful effort, a beautiful experience to go into your site.
I have greatly enjoyed your articles on a subject I know much too little about. Keep them coming! Thanks

Namaste Exotic India:
I had not long ago signed up for your sales newsletter, as I'm fascinated with all things Indian, from the People, Culture, Clothing, Jewelry, and History (and have been since I was a very young child).
I just read the enlightening article "Women and Jewelry: The Spiritual Dimensions of Ornamentation" and that has piqued my interest in your culture even more. I've signed up for your monthly newsletters, and have bookmarked the page of Women and Jewelry. I learned so many things from just that article, and bookmarked it, to save for future reference. I also plan on reading more of the articles you have posted on your site. The fact that you have included additional sources of references is yet another wonderful gift you have given me.
I just wanted to let you know how glad I am that I first signed up for your sales announcements a few months ago, and for your wonderful articles. I plan on visiting your site regularly from now on, as it holds a vast amount of information.
I love your frequent newsletter on different topics with all the illustrations. I have learned so much of the Indian Culture from your newsletters. Please keep sending more to me, I am always excited to open your mail the first. Thankyou
I am very happy to have the opportunity to read these marvellous articles about Hinduism. It is being very useful to my monography at the University. My monography is " The conception of Art in India". Thanks a lot.
Maria Leticia de Melo from Brazil.
Thank you very much for continuing to sent me your articles. I enjoy them very much and find them extremely educational. Keep up the good work!
With very best wishes.
It is already a few months, I have been getting these monthly articles from you. I appreciate them very much and enjoy reading them again and again. Through these articles I am attached to my Indian roots. They are very poetic, nicely written and always have a lot of interesting information.
Though, I do not have any talent for writing, but reading I enjoy most. I feel myself very lucky that I am subscribed on your site. I sincerely appreciate your talent and wish you success in your work. Thank you very much.
Pankaj Sharma, Israel
, I would like to thank you,for mailing me the summary of your sophisticated usefull articles.I am always looking forward to be in continious touch with you.
There is no way I can thank you enough for the time you take to put together the beautiful articles with the links to the pictures. Your writing is so beautiful and easy to understand that I print the articles out so I can read them at breaks during the work day when I need a "reading meditation" for help in centering.
Thank you again for your contribution to the raising of human consciousness.
May you always walk aware of the serenity and love of the cosmos.
I really enjoy the monthly newsletter and the illustrations that come with it are very nice, thank you.
Your articles are great to read as I am especially interested in mythology. I am now trying to learn more about Hinduism and its philosophies. I would love to take up the hindu religion but as an older caucasian woman I would most probly find this very difficult. Anyway I love your artwork and the articles you write.
I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your articles on India. I read each one and many I have printed out to save as I am deeply interested in the culture, philosophies and arts of your country. I visited South India last winter and hope to get back to explore North India next year. I am an artist and am doing a series of paintings that have resulted from my love of India. I have 2 works in a show this month that are my exploration into the complex dichotomy of Shiva and his Dance.
Again thank you for the great articles and for your fine company.
I just wanted to send you a quick message saying how much I enjoy reading your background info to each piece of art. Keep up the great work.
Thank you so much, people of Exotic India...
Your articles are always extremely interesting and very much appreciated...
Best regards and wishes for all of you,
Thank you for sending these, they are wonderful! I enjoy reading
them and love looking at the beautiful illustrations, also.
At this time I can't afford to buy the lovely things you offer, but I want to thank you for keeping me on your mailing list and sending me these wonderful descriptions of the mystic religious and cultural aspects of India. They are interesting, well written, and help me to see things from the outside and understand them a little more. It is very true that it is easier to emerge from a maze when part of you can hover overhead to see the whole problem. I started as a simple doll collector, but find your articles add a richness to the aspect of the dolls and my own life. Thanks again.
I just wanted to say that I find your scholarly knowledge to be amazing! I am familiar with many of the authors in your bibliographies and am amazed at your extensive readings.
I enjoy your articles so much..even tho they are meant to promote sales, that aside, it is nice to read 'religious' articles that are full of the love, goodness and compassion that we should all strive to practice in our every day lives.
I always look forward to your artilces. You must be a very learned and wise person.
YOUR ARTICLES ARE EXCITING, ENLIGHTENING AND EAGERLY AWAITED. I HAVE SAVED THOSE I HAVE RECEIVED IN A SPECIAL BINDER AND REFER TO THEM WHEN NEEDED. THANK YOU MANY TIMES OVER.
Once again, you have done us proud, to put forth another well written discourse. I hope you are one with the great mind, the universe, brahman, only coming out to illuminate, like a firefly, a dark night in the world of men.
Shine on, my friend.
Dr. Jan, Ireland.
I have been reading your current and past articles and am very impressed about the reasearch and text you have produced.
Please keep it up. It is very good work.
I would like you to know how much I enjoy your emailings. Often, the writing reminds me of things I already know but forget to notice day by day as I get caught up in the mundane. Thanks!
I love reading your monthly articles, they are inspiring! Why is it that India is the cradle of so many world religions? Buddhism, Hinduism and Sikhism to name but three!
Best wishes and kind regards,
I just want to say thank you. I so very much enjoy receiving your news letter each month. The information is wonderful. I learn alot by reading them. And I also enjoy your website. Very beautiful things. We are building a new home. Upon completion, we will be adding some of your items. PLEASE KEEP ME ON YOUR EZINE LIST. Peace and Grace on life's journey. Namaste
I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your articles. I live in Baton Rouge, LA, and I am very interested in Hinduism. I look forward to receiving your newsletter each month, and often pass them on to friends.Your artwork is exquisite as well. I hope to order some when I move into my own home in the near future (I'm a grad student in an apartment now).Who writes the articles? They're very well written and informative!Thanks so much, and keep up the great work!
Thank you for taking the time to write these. I always read them in the morning after my meditation and ponder on them before my day.
Having read and enjoyed your "Article of the Month" for several years, I just want to thank and congratulate you for these excellent texts. As a journalist specializing in religious questions I have learned much - especially about Buddhism and the different facets of Hinduism.
Now I have a request (or a proposal if you like): Would it be possible for you to publish something about the bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara/Chenrezig/Kwan Yin? He/she is one of the most fascinating figures in the buddhist pantheon and I would be very glad to learn more about "He (she) who hears the cries of the world".
Your articles/News Letters are superb with great details. I would appreciate if you can post any information on Meditation.
Ram Taju, Saudi Arabia
Not only are the products amazing and beautiful, but the informational emails I am now receiving are full of fascinating facts which I like to share with my friends. I have seen many beautiful and meaningful items on your website which I will purchase as soon as I am working full-time again. This is something I look forward to very much.

Have Found your articles very interesting and informative, please continue your great job.
Diana Schmidt, El Cerrito, CA, USA
Thank you so much for yet another wonderful article. I have learned so much about Eastern philosophy, iconography, and theology through reading your monthly articles. I keep a file of them, and often refer to one or another in preparing presentations at the Interfaith Center I help direct.
Please continue your very important contribution to the education and enlightenment of human kind.
I am writing to you in regards to the newsletters. I enjoy them very much, and have used them as spring boards to further my knowledge in Indian culture. I would like very much to see one on chakras. That is a subject I've been interested in fairly recently.
Thank you for the inspiration and deeper understanding that your email brings. Nameste.
Just a thank you for sending me these wonderful articles. I really appreciate them. Reach for the Joy!
I really enjoy and learn a lot from your e-mails. Thanks for making the effort.
Thank you very much, for sending me this new info. Most beautiful and interesting! Please keep in touch and keep up the good work!
I enjoyed receiving and reading this--have forwarded to several friends. Many thanks.
I have really enjoyed your newsletters. Sent regularly, I acquire great knowledge and wisdom from them.
I thank you for sharing further news and articles from your wonderful site. I have purchased from you previously and hence receive wonderful letters on Diwali in the post.
I am grateful for your contribution in highlighting Indian (Sanatan Dharma) culture and it's value in today's society.
I would like to say "thank you" for the generosity in sending me your interesting articles regarding the history of India and the beliefs that have inspired some of her most beautiful art. I feel that I have come to understand and appreciate Indian culture much more as a result, and have also been able to explore my own beliefs in the process.
Thank you again
I had to write to tell you how much I look forward to receiving the Exotic India newsletter. I always learn something, am always inspired, and am always appreciative, even though I have not shared my thanks with you until today.
What you are doing has real value. Thank you for your efforts! Many blessing to you.
As an academic and researcher I am incredibly impressed by your articles which I always find make a highly informative and fascinating read. The enthusiasm shown for your diverse subjects and illustrations used make your writing an enjoyable learning experience.
Wonderful article...thank you very much..will send it on to others who might appreciate it...sincerely,
I cannot begin to tell you how much I truly enjoy these monthly submissions. They are so insightful and interesting. Just thought I would let you know that I rank Exotic India's monthly mailings as among my very favorites! Keep up the good work!
Once again, thank you for your wonderful service of sending your monthly "lessons"! I learn so much from them, and they deepen to my practice in so many ways, I cannot express the depth of my gratitude. Your interpretations are always loving and kind, and it is like drinking a nectar of compassion to read them.
My only regret is that I am not wealthy and materialistic, so I could contribute to your success in more substantial fashion.
Love & Peace
I just wish to say how much I enjoy your posts and updates. I find it interesting, as a Free Mason , how much Buddhist philosophy and ritual is paralleled in Masonic obediences. Whether these parallels are something absorbed by my ancient brethren or are common to ritualistic works I dont know. Thanks again and Happy Trails.
