I finally got my nearly $300 Meenakari earrings today. They were promised in 4-6 days but it took a week for them to be shipped. Then it was 4-6 days. When I saw them I had mixed feelings. They are cute but it took me a half hour to get them in my ears as the posts are really large in diameter. I had to use vaseline and force them through and then the screw on backs (a good thing) wouldn't line up. There seems to be something inside the screw on locks that act as a securing agent. Any way most of the things I've got from ExoticIndia were gifts and acceptable.

Wrathful Deities of Tibet
Tibet is a vast and thinly populated country where small groups of people live separated from each other by stretches of arid, deserted land. It is a region of high awe-inspiring mountains, of wild rivers, of steep dangerous gorges and of immense silent deserts. It is also a land of icy winters, of sudden violent storms and of screeching winds. The grim and forbidding face of Nature, combined with the weird atmosphere ‘created by climatic conditions, made the Tibetans preoccupied with the fearsome possibilities of their environment. All their hopes as well as fears were associated with it; it influenced not only their mind and character but also shaped their religion.

Chief among the fears to which the Tibetan mind was prone was the belief in the unseen presence of innumerable evil spirits and malevolent forces which were waiting to harm human beings. To overpower these forces and to protect the individual believer as well as his religion, the Tibetan created a set of wrathful and terrifying gods, who were all protective deities.. These gods had pronounced frightful countenances. They were credited with powers strong enough to scare away and destroy even the most powerful and hideous evil spirits.

There are numerous categories of wrathful beings in the Buddhist art of Tibet, including herukas, lokapalas, dharmapalas, and some wrathful dakinis. When propitiated these gods destroy the passions of the mind and protect the faithful.

The emphasis in the composition of these images is always on the diagonal, and movement is expressed through the use of sharp angles at the joints of the limbs. The artist has chosen to exaggerate the posture of the body to better express the god’s inherent power and energy.

Often these wrathful deities are shown in vigorous physical embrace with their consorts. Such thangka paintings are highly symbolic and signify the union of compassion and insight, implying the non-polarized state of bodhicitta, or the mind of enlightenment.Tibetans characterize such images as yab-yum, which literally means father-mother; in Sanskrit the expression is yuganaddha (pair united). This metaphor is also used to denote the highest stage of yoga in which there is no polarity, no discrimination, and the truth is indivisible as the vajra itself.

When these angry-looking deities are enshrined at the center of a mandala they suggest all the inner afflictions which darken our thoughts, our words, and our deeds and which prohibit attainment of the Buddhist goal of full enlightenment. Traditionally, wrathful deities are understood to be aspects of benevolent principles, fearful only to those who perceive them as alien forces. When recognized as aspects of one's self and tamed by spiritual practice, they assume a purely benevolent guise.

"Each of the three forms of Mahakala has some distinctly different qualities and aspects.... The continuous counting of the rosary is a symbol of perpetual activity, which Mahakala achieves on a cosmic scale.... An elephant-headed entity lying crushed under his legs represents our instinctive, primary animal force and urge... The blazing fire surrounding him demonstrates his powerful energy out to consume all neurotic states of minds.... Mahakala's typical blackness symbolizes his all-embracing, comprehensive nature, because it is the hue into which all other colors merge; it absorbs and dissolves them. Just as all colors disappear in black, so do all names and forms melt into that of Mahakala. Black is also the total absence of color, again signifying the nature of Mahakala as ultimate reality.... He is the transcendent-time (maha-kala), absolute, eternal, measureless, and ever present."
The Many Forms of Mahakala, Protector of Buddhist Monasteries
"An enigmatic aspect of Buddhist iconography is the presence of wrathful, terrifying forms. Though these awesome, hair-raising images seem contradictory to Buddhist ideals, they are not personifications of evil or demonic forces. Rather they symbolize the violence that is a fundamental reality of the cosmos in general, and of the human mind in particular. In addition to destroying the passions of the mind, the purpose of gods is to protect the faithful. The wrathful deities, who symbolize the tremendous effort it takes to vanquish evil, especially perform this function."
