I LOVE these emails/Articles of the Month!
Keep up the good work!
I just wanted to say thank you , what beautiful art work and love the stories , I have very much enjoyed both and learned a little too. Thank you again
Dear Exotic India,
This sight is so very beautiful, with beautiful stories and images!! As I read them now being in Europe and normally living in India, I now understand much more about all the Hindu stories about the Gods. Good to let the people know, what they are all about and what they mean. I passed this sight on to my family, who agrees with me about what I just wrote down.
Good luck to you with this sight!!!

I have really enjoyed your newsletters. Sent regularly, I acquire great knowledge and wisdom from them.
I thank you for sharing further news and articles from your wonderful site. I have purchased from you previously and hence receive wonderful letters on Diwali in the post.
I am grateful for your contribution in highlighting Indian (Sanatan Dharma) culture and it's value in today's society.
Having read and enjoyed your "Article of the Month" for several years, I just want to thank and congratulate you for these excellent texts. As a journalist specializing in religious questions I have learned much - especially about Buddhism and the different facets of Hinduism.
Now I have a request (or a proposal if you like): Would it be possible for you to publish something about the bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara/Chenrezig/Kwan Yin? He/she is one of the most fascinating figures in the buddhist pantheon and I would be very glad to learn more about "He (she) who hears the cries of the world".
Thank you for taking the time to write these. I always read them in the morning after my meditation and ponder on them before my day.
I would like to say "thank you" for the generosity in sending me your interesting articles regarding the history of India and the beliefs that have inspired some of her most beautiful art. I feel that I have come to understand and appreciate Indian culture much more as a result, and have also been able to explore my own beliefs in the process.
Thank you again
There is no way I can thank you enough for the time you take to put together the beautiful articles with the links to the pictures. Your writing is so beautiful and easy to understand that I print the articles out so I can read them at breaks during the work day when I need a "reading meditation" for help in centering.
Thank you again for your contribution to the raising of human consciousness.
May you always walk aware of the serenity and love of the cosmos.
I found your website while searching for an image of Shiva. When I signed up for your articles, I had no idea how wonderful they would be. Well written, informative, and thoughtful is just the beginning. Thank you so much for putting so much time and effort into what you do. I have love reading them, sharing them, and I look forward to receiving them every month!

I enjoy reading such stories. Thanks again. Blessings and greetings.
Your articles are always written so eloquently with Divine Wisdom. Thank you for your work. I look forward to reading it every month. God Bless You.
Just a thank you for sending me these wonderful articles. I really appreciate them. Reach for the Joy!
Having perused through your website from time to time over the past couple of weeks, I simply had to write and compliment you on your Article of the month feature. You have a tremendous talent to make some otherwise very heavy subjects readable hence easily accessible to the every day person who may know zero on the many topics you write about. Thank you.
I thought youd like to know that both my children (they are 10 & 13yrs old respectively) have used your articles as research materials for their school projects on religion. Thats just how readable your articles are.
Keep up the wonderful work, your website is a tremendous benefit to people worldwide.
, I would like to thank you,for mailing me the summary of your sophisticated usefull articles.I am always looking forward to be in continious touch with you.
I just love the images and text I receive from you. Thank you for your thoughtful and beautiful contribution to the world-wide web.
I love reading your monthly articles, they are inspiring! Why is it that India is the cradle of so many world religions? Buddhism, Hinduism and Sikhism to name but three!
Best wishes and kind regards,
Your newsletter is a wonderful idea! I fear I am merely a "window shopper" in your gallery, but your articles are most informative! You gain much merit by your service in educating the public about the significance of this sacred art. May this work also bring you much joy and prosperity!
I am very happy to have the opportunity to read these marvellous articles about Hinduism. It is being very useful to my monography at the University. My monography is " The conception of Art in India". Thanks a lot.

I just wish to say how much I enjoy your posts and updates. I find it interesting, as a Free Mason , how much Buddhist philosophy and ritual is paralleled in Masonic obediences. Whether these parallels are something absorbed by my ancient brethren or are common to ritualistic works I dont know. Thanks again and Happy Trails.
YOUR ARTICLES ARE EXCITING, ENLIGHTENING AND EAGERLY AWAITED. I HAVE SAVED THOSE I HAVE RECEIVED IN A SPECIAL BINDER AND REFER TO THEM WHEN NEEDED. THANK YOU MANY TIMES OVER.
Thank you for the inspiration and deeper understanding that your email brings. Nameste.
I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your articles on India. I read each one and many I have printed out to save as I am deeply interested in the culture, philosophies and arts of your country. I visited South India last winter and hope to get back to explore North India next year. I am an artist and am doing a series of paintings that have resulted from my love of India. I have 2 works in a show this month that are my exploration into the complex dichotomy of Shiva and his Dance.
Again thank you for the great articles and for your fine company.
It is already a few months, I have been getting these monthly articles from you. I appreciate them very much and enjoy reading them again and again. Through these articles I am attached to my Indian roots. They are very poetic, nicely written and always have a lot of interesting information.
Though, I do not have any talent for writing, but reading I enjoy most. I feel myself very lucky that I am subscribed on your site. I sincerely appreciate your talent and wish you success in your work. Thank you very much.

Thank you so much, people of Exotic India...
Your articles are always extremely interesting and very much appreciated...
Best regards and wishes for all of you,
Your monthly articles on philosophy and iconography are some of the best I've been able to find since searching over the last few years. Always very clearly and logically explained in their spiritual significance and deep philosophical upderpinning rather than just superficial and sentimental devotional tracts any New Age shop has. Look forward to them every month and print them off to save.
I am so grateful that I have found your web site. From my first visit to Southern India I have felt in my heart the most special place for India. When I stepped of the Airplane for the first time I felt like I had returned home. I loved the people, the smells, the beauty all around and most of all how the sacred permeated everything.
I can not thank you enough for offering me the chance to order gifts and alter items from India. I have placed two orders and both arrived beautifully wrapped with a signed card in a few days. Sooner than it takes me to fly to India. I have told my friends of your web site.
Thank of you for sending the informative article today. I really enjoyed it. I think that I shall go have Indian food tonight.
May there be Peace on Earth.
May All Beings Be Happy.
At this time I can't afford to buy the lovely things you offer, but I want to thank you for keeping me on your mailing list and sending me these wonderful descriptions of the mystic religious and cultural aspects of India. They are interesting, well written, and help me to see things from the outside and understand them a little more. It is very true that it is easier to emerge from a maze when part of you can hover overhead to see the whole problem. I started as a simple doll collector, but find your articles add a richness to the aspect of the dolls and my own life. Thanks again.
I really enjoy the monthly newsletter and the illustrations that come with it are very nice, thank you.
Your articles are great to read as I am especially interested in mythology. I am now trying to learn more about Hinduism and its philosophies. I would love to take up the hindu religion but as an older caucasian woman I would most probly find this very difficult. Anyway I love your artwork and the articles you write.
I enjoyed receiving and reading this--have forwarded to several friends. Many thanks.
Enjoy very much receiving the monthly newsletter. Have loved East Indian art since 14 years old; it's my favorite. (Surprisingly enough, I ended up worshipping Hindu and I am Afro-American - but an artist.)
I enjoyed this very much. Thank you for sending it. I will definitely use it as a resource for documentation. I am an avid historic re-enactor, and I am also a Middle Eastern Dance student/teacher. Thanks again
As an academic and researcher I am incredibly impressed by your articles which I always find make a highly informative and fascinating read. The enthusiasm shown for your diverse subjects and illustrations used make your writing an enjoyable learning experience.
I would like you to know how much I enjoy your emailings. Often, the writing reminds me of things I already know but forget to notice day by day as I get caught up in the mundane. Thanks!
Not only are the products amazing and beautiful, but the informational emails I am now receiving are full of fascinating facts which I like to share with my friends. I have seen many beautiful and meaningful items on your website which I will purchase as soon as I am working full-time again. This is something I look forward to very much.

I had to write to tell you how much I look forward to receiving the Exotic India newsletter. I always learn something, am always inspired, and am always appreciative, even though I have not shared my thanks with you until today.
What you are doing has real value. Thank you for your efforts! Many blessing to you.
I have been reading your articles on Jewelry and Ramayana and have enjoyed both of them both. I have seen the Epic Ramayan and am now in the process of watching Shri Krishna. Keep the articles coming. They are exceptional and very informative.
Just let You know how much I apreciate all yours newsletters. I wish one day I would be able to get something from you.
Thank You very much.
Just a note of thanks for your very interesting website. Its only one of few that I look foward to. Best Regards
A few years ago I purchased a carved necklace fm Tibet with all these symbols and it called to me today to find out what they all mean since I am immersing myself in practical Buddhism, such a noble and radiant way of Life!!
Your articles/News Letters are superb with great details. I would appreciate if you can post any information on Meditation.

Once again, you have done us proud, to put forth another well written discourse. I hope you are one with the great mind, the universe, brahman, only coming out to illuminate, like a firefly, a dark night in the world of men.
Shine on, my friend.

I have really learned a lot from reading your articles
