This thangka portrays goddess Kurukulla on a lovely Tibetan mountainous landscape. The goddess is called the heart of Tara. She is worshipped by unhappy lovers. Kurukulla confers success in the Tantric rites of vasikarana or enchanting men, women, ministers, and even kings. It is said that she is generally invoked when no women is near. If she is invoked with the mantra Om Kurukulla Hum Hrih Svaha, preferably before her image ten thousand times, she touches the heart of the beloved who is surely won over.

Kurukulla is considered as the Buddhist counterpart of Kamuela, the god of love and his consort Ratio. But unlike Kamuela she does not enslave beings to lust; rather by energizing their liberating insight into the nature reality, she captivates their passions and turns them toward the realization of the Dharma.

The iconographical texts mention different forms of Kurukulla both in peaceful and wrathful appearance. Here the goddess is dancing in ardhaparyankasana on a corpse. She has one head, three eyes and a ferocious expression. Her hair is erect in loose. Kurukulla has four hands, on the right she holds a flowery arrow and the second right hand clasps and pull the bow-string (not clearly visible) and flowery arrow; at the left a hand holds the flower bow and the other a flowery stick with stems.

She wears a crown of five skulls with gemstones. Her body is decked with ornaments which are made of gold with precious gemstones and bones. Moreover she wears a long flowing silk scarf, a long garland of severed human heads, and tiger-skin skirt. There is an arch-shaped aureole with wisdom fire border, behind her body.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
