Indra and Shachi
Indra and Shachi
Description
The Indra of the Vedas is a very powerful king, the ruler of the heavens. But as we come to the epics we find he becomes more and more human. He faces a number of problems, the type that mortal kings face on earth. He has many enemies who seek to unsurp his kingdom. His wife is the beautiful Shachi. She is counted as one among great women like Anasuya, Savitri, Arundhati and Sita, to whom the husband was the sole lord. By their love and devotion to their husbands they have merited a place as ideals of Indian womanhood.

In the story of Indra and Shachi retold from the Mahabharata, we trace the fluctuating fortunes of Indra in his battle with the evil forces seeking to oust him. We see how the devotion of his wife leaves him unscathed through his tribulations.

Shachi is a figure many women admire and strive to emulate. This story is adapted from the Mahabharata. It is narrated to Yudhishthira before the Mahabharata war to console him for his sufferings.

  • It amazes me how people confuse the Indra, Shakra of the Rig Veda with the Indra of the Purranas. They are not the same, period. For a more scholarly look at Indra Shakra Devanam, from the Rig Veda, and THAT Devas mantras, I highly recommend Dr. R.L. Kashyap's short book, Indra Lord of the Divine Mind.

Testimonials

I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.

Your products are uncommon yet have advanced my knowledge and devotion to Sanatana Dharma. Also, they are reasonably priced and ship quickly. Thank you for all you do.

Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.

The variety, the quality and the very helpful price range of your huge stock means that every year I find a few new statues to add to our meditation room--and I always pick up a few new books and cds whenever I visit! keep up the good work!
