Balarama is said to be the incarnation of Vishnu as also of serpent Shesh on Vishnu's behest. As scriptures have it, when the misdeeds of many kings, more so of Kansa, Mathura's king, became cumbersome to Bhoodevi, the mother earth, she transformed into a cow and reached before Vishnu praying him to redeem her of the evil powers tramping her under their feet. Vishnu promised her that he would take birth as Vasudeo's sons, Balarama and Krishna, and redeem her of Kansa and other wicked kings. Vasudeo and Devaki were in Kansa's prison and six of their children had been killed by Kansa as soon as they were born. The seventh in her womb was Balarama or Balabhadra. Now the myth slightly varies. Instead of incarnating himself Vishnu directs Shesh to incarnate as Balarama to help Vishnu, when he incarnates as Krishna, in his mission against demons. As Kansa was sure to kill this seventh child too, as soon as it was born, Vishnu directed Yogamaya to transfer the foetus from Devaki's womb to Rohini's, Vasudeo's other wife. In due course Rohini bore a child who was initially named Sangharsana, but became popular later as Balarama or Balabhadra.

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.
