Madhubani art with its vibrant colours has everyone enthralled. Marthilas worship a number of deities and Tantra influences their religious thought. Therefore yantra and mantra form an integral part of their ritual.

Yantra, meaning 'device' or instrument is usually a geometric representation designed to identify the mind of a worshipper with his chosen deity. This yantra is constructed with a circular point or 'bindu' at the centre embodying the seed or 'bija' of the deity. Encompassing the bindu are triangles, the upward pointing represent the god and the downward pointing triangles represent the goddess. Outside this in concentric circles are the lotus petals, eight in the inner and sixteen in the outer circle. The whole diagram is contained within a square 'bhupura' or ground plan with four gateways in the cardinal directions.

It is prescribed that a yantra or a mandala be painted in white, red, yellow, blue and black. A Madhubani 'artist's' love of colour is well known, but here the artist couple has tried to maintain the order to some extent.

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.
