Vishnu, the Supreme Being, is the preserver, the protector of the good and the guardian of dharma. But, to begin with, he was a solar deity who rapidly grew in stature to become one of the prominent gods of the Hindu pantheon.

This large sized pata-chitra is divided into three sections, each carrying an important depiction of Vishnu. The central one, which is larger in comparison, depicts Vishnu in shayana (resting) mudra, reclining on the coils of Sheshnag, the endless serpent. Brahma blossoms from the lotus that emerges from Vishnu's navel. Lakshmi is seated, caressing his feet. Saraswati is placed close to her on a lotus floating in the cosmic waters. On the other side, behind the multiple hoods of the serpent, stands Garuda in obeisance. In the foreground are Narada, other sages and gods who have come to pay regards to Vishnu.

On the two sides of the middle section are composite images of Vishnu. On the left, standing on a lotus pedestal is Vishnu part of him painted green, holding Rama's attributes and the other half blue, holding Vishnu's own attributes. The image on the right is that of Hari-Hara, with the left half blue representing Vishnu & the other half ashen, representing Shiva holding a trishula and a damaru.

Tina, USA
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.
