Shrimad-Bhagwatam is the Vedic scriptural literature narrating the activities of Krishna. It is the most authoritative and comprehensive account of his life.

Krishna and his brother Balarama shared a unique bond. According to the narration in Bhagwatam, the two were real brothers. Balarama appeared in the womb of Devaki and was subsequently transferred to Rohini's womb and Krishna, as is commonly known, was Devaki's son brought up by Yashoda and Nanda. Here the two stand in identically inverted poses. The symmetry is maintained on either side. On a rectangular platform the blue bodied Krishna and the white bodied Balarama stand under a sparsely leafed tree; even the branches make no distinction between the two in providing equal shade. On each side of the pedestal stand cows followed by three men each side carrying a fan, sayaban and a canopy, all symbolizing majesty. As objects they had no value for Krishna but they signify the status the people of that land bestowed upon them.

Symmetry is strictly adhered to in both line and colour.

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.
