Description

About the Comic

 

A little boy was sitting outside a Shiva temple one day, when he heard a voice telling him to leave his family and go seek a guru in distant Deogarh. Obediently, he left his family and went.

 

The boy would grow up to become Ekanath. He was known for his stand against untouchability and his view that all people were equal. At a time when the priestly class held a monopoly over Sanskrit scriptures, Ekanath wrote treatises explaining the scriptures in Marathi, so that ordinary people could read them and discuss them. Ekanath is also known for his devotional songs, or abhangs, many of which are still sung today.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
