Hanuman is the son of the wind-god Pavan, and the celestial nymph (apsara) Anjana. He is given his chief role in the Ramayana where he is acknowledged to have assisted Rama in his victory over the demon Ravana. Hanuman is greatly extolled in Hindu literature, and his exploits form the subject of many legends. He is regarded as divine and his supernatural powers are attributed largely to his celibacy (brahamacharya). He was learned in the scriptures, a perfect grammarian, and excelled in all the sciences. Hanuman could change his shape at will, had incredible strength and could also fly through the air. Many tales are told about his tail which was of immense length. Here it can be seen winding across his shoulder, moving under his right leg and finally coming to rest over his mace, lying to his side.

Contrary to his usual dynamic posture, Hanuman here is shown poised in meditation. Indeed one of Hanuman's epithets is Yogachara, 'the master of yoga.' Wearing a short-patterned loin-cloth, he is adorned with necklaces of pearls, elaborate earrings, and an intricate three-tiered crown. This figure epitomizes Hanuman's character at his very best - powerful, as his bulging muscles show, and humble, as exemplified in his calm, relaxed, and unpretentious meditative demeanour. Here is the monkey general adored by countless devotees for the impossible feat he performed - locating Sita by jumping across the ocean to Lanka, giving her a message form Rama, and returning to fight the final battle. He is the one whom devotees beseech for help when confronting difficulties:

Lord who achieved the impossible
before you how can one speak of the impossible?
O messenger of Rama, O ocean of mercy
make my task achievable, O Lord.

(A popular Sanskrit prayer to Hanuman)

Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.

An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.

I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
