A 16th century princess from Rajasthan, Mirabai is one of India's greatest bhakti poets. She was a great devotee of Krishna – always immersed in his thoughts and her songs on the Lord deeply move human hearts.

Dressed in simple clothes and ornaments, unlike a princess that she was, she sits on the floor trying to communicate with Lord Krishna. Playing on a single-wired musical instrument with clapper to accompany, she is singing devotional songs. The radiance on her face implies union with her Lord. The artist aptly colours her odhini in yellow, the colour of bhakti.

In the foreground is a tray with ritual objects e.g. garland, holy water, incense sticks and a burning lamp. Mira prepares this 'arti' tray to carry to the temple seen in the background. Beyond the thick silk drapes can be seen shrubs, trees and creepers; a pond with a couple of swans basking in the silent waters. Though painted in one discreet corner, the temple is an integral part of the painting, with the setting sun throwing an aura around it.

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.
