From the CD

This eighth century monument, a world heritage site, situated in Bagalpore district of Karnataka, was built to celebrate the victory of King Vikramaditya II over his foes, and touches the highest pinnacle of temple architecture. At the entrance to the Lokeshwara temple, stands the sanctum of Nandi – Shiva’s vehicle. It is in black stone. The walls have ornate carvings. Suryadeva is the protector of the temple. He adorns it from outside. The temple has pillars in geometric progression, and no two pillars are the same. The story line is that of Shiv Purana. The Virhapaksha temple has a pillared hall, with rows of pillars. The narratives of Shivalila, as well as the epics – Ramayana and Mahabharata-can be seen there. The Shivalinga is in a full-fledged temple with three doorways. Though the temple is devoted to Shiva, yet Vaishnavite stories are also there. The episodes depicted have socio-religious-cultural significance. There are ten monuments in a single complex, known for their grandeur, decorative designs and inscriptions. The iconographic details are of high standard. The embellishments in the smaller temples have a Pauranic story line. There are seven hundred forty eight panels-that link this world with the other world or Mukteshwara. Find more details by watching the documentary.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
