"O son of Uma, thou hath lotus feet, destroyth grief and removeth impediments, thee we salute".

This gorgeous image of Lord Ganesha represents, and in quite close resemblance, his Rinamochana Ganapati form as prescribed in Indian ancient texts especially the Modagalya Purana. Rinamochana Ganapati is essentially his votive form widely worshipped in India and abroad as the deity that removes the bondage of humanity. He is the remover of adversities, keeps evil under his yoke and contains detrimental forces. Rinamochana Ganapati is the presiding deity form of most of Ganesha temples. The invocation - 'Nirvighnam kuru mey deva sarva karyeshu sarvatha', is the most appropriate 'mantra' for invoking Rinamochana Ganapati.

Born of Uma, or Paravati, the illustrious daughter of Himalayas, Lord Ganesha in his Rinamochana Ganapati manifestation has white crystalline complexion, obviously like that of Himalaya. He has been bestowed with the tenderness of lotus-flowers, which by being in his constant company as his 'pitha' or seat, have become a part of his cult. Rinamochana Ganapati is dressed in silk, usually red, and carries in his four hands goad, noose, milk-white broken tusk and a sweet fruit, usually a mango. The cool, soft and kind hearted Rinamochana Ganapati is the auspicious god of good beginning and the harbinger of good fortune, success and prosperity. He liberates the soul from the temporal bonds and temptations and leads to the attainment of the ultimate good, the moksha, or salvation.

The sublime figure of the god has been consecrated on a double lotus placed on the traditional lotus 'pitha'. The lotus he is seated on is large enough to suit his massive physiognomy. He is seated in semi-'padmasana', that is, left leg in 'padmasana' form while the right suspending on to the 'pitha'. He is wearing an elegant crown and rich jewelry, the ornaments of usual kind and a 'yajnapavita'. On his forehead he has the usual 'tripunda' mark. His loin cloth and sash tied around his waist are splendid silk, though instead the usual red of Rinamochana Ganapati they are green. On his left is his vehicle mouse in its mini form.

The image has been installed inside a ‘prabhavali’ – fire-arch. The beautifully carved ‘prabhavali’ around the figure of Lord Ganesha rises from a base consisting of dual lotus moulding along a pair of half columns, one on either side, that hold on their tops a circular three-tiered frame, the outer and the principal one, consisting of stylized lotuses. The inner two rings consist of courses of beads and leaf-design. The ‘prabhavali’, otherwise symbolising cosmos that Vijay Ganapati pervades, creates around the figure great divine aura and a beautiful frame. The fire-arch is topped by Shrimukha symbolising utmost good.

Dr. Daljeet is the curator of the Miniature Painting Gallery, National Museum, New Delhi. They have both collaborated together on a number of books.

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.
