There are within Hinduism many goddesses, most of whom are subservient to one or other of the principal male gods, while many are independent deities of relatively minor, localized cults. The One Goddess, however, is a major independent deity in her own right, as powerful a figure as Shiva or Vishnu. In this form the Goddess is known by many names, which is appropriate since she wields the weapons of all the major gods while manifesting a personality which is an amalgam of the characteristics of all goddesses.

The legend behind her origin is as interesting as her iconography. The world, it is said, was once threatened by a powerful demon whose strength was so great that even the gods were helpless against him. From the collective divine wrath of the gods there arose a goddess. To her multiple arms each of the male deities contributed a weapon. For example, Shiva gave the trident, Vishnu gave his discus and Indra his thunderbolt. The bearer of these weapons and the personification of the god's combined fury was The Great Goddess. Wielding the masculine powers of all the gods she was the only one capable of vanquishing the demon, a task which she accomplished with characteristic ease and fun.

Here haloed by a golden chakra, the Goddess sits sideways on a tiger. She is bedecked in the finest of ornaments and adornments which includes an elaborate golden crown, and a rich collection of necklaces, anklets and bracelets. Her right toe is visible and is endowed with arabesque forms carved out in henna, a sign of her fertilizing powers. Her saddle is a richly decorated carpet and her mount too has a golden band around his neck. She is eight-armed and each holds a different weapon which includes a drooping pink lotus in her foremost left arm. The drooping lotus may be signifying that as a deity the sexuality of a goddess needs to be suppressed though in his rendering the artist has sufficiently elaborated upon her femininity and brought the inherent charm of a woman. This is expressed through her effortless grace, beauty, and the innocence of her face characterized by her mesmerizing eyes, which captivate, yet do not look straight into our own, an essential trait of a well-bred girl.

From the primary right arm issues forth rays These signify the mercy and boon of the goddess.

This painting is the creation of Shri Manohar Saini, of Kishangarh, Rajasthan. Kishangarh is a small town approximately 125 kms from Jaipur, the capital city of Rajasthan.

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.
