Lord Naramsimha With Devi Lakshmi And Sheshanaga Aureole

Of the nine avataras (incarnations) of Lord Vishnu, the Narasimha roopa is the most fascinating. The name Narasimha is a portmanteau of the Sanskrt words nara, which means man, and simha, which means lion; but Lord Narasimha is neither human nor beast. Although He has the torso of a lion and the limbs and lower body of a man, the fact of it could be deduced from the boon of King Hiranyakashipu whom He killed, which states that he can be killed by neither man nor beast.

The handpicked bronze sculpture that you see on this page depicts the Vishnu-avatara Lord Narasimha seated in lalitasana. On His lap is the petite and gentle Devi Lakshmi, His wife. Note the striking contrast between the fierce demeanour of Lord Narasimha and the graceful composure of Devi Lakshmi. There is meaning in that - myth has it that the ardour of Narasimha was cooled only in the proximity of Devi Lakshmi. Their union is indicative of divine harmony. She is the presiding deity over wealth and resources, things which are indispensable to the process of preservation, over which Lord Vishnu is the presiding deity

The Narasimha-Lakshmi ensemble is rested on the coils of Sheshanaga, the serpent (‘naga’) named Shesha, who is an integral part of Vaishnavite iconography. Upon an upturned lotus throne poised upon the coils of Sheshanaga, while His multitudinous hoods rise above and behind Him like a living, breathing, deadly aureole.

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
Thank you for your wonderful service and amazing book selection. We are long time customers and have never been disappointed by your great store. Thank you and we will continue to shop at your store
