Lord Vishnu here stands in the 'tribhanga' posture under a dense foliage of vegetation. In this particular posture the head, torso, and legs slant in contrary directions. The legs and hips jutt to the left, the trunk to the right, and the neck and head then again gently to the left. It is a lyrical, dreamy, very graceful pose. The three curves formed by the body symbolize the three worlds, upper, lower and middle, better known in Sanskrit as triloka. Hence is Vishnu universally adored as 'Trilokapati,' or 'Lord of the Three Worlds.'

Parrots can be seen singing amidst the leafy branches. Vishnu wears a high-crown, known in Sanskrit as the kirtimukuta, or the 'crown of glory.' His body is strong, robust and well-proportioned. Circular floral earrings decorate his ears. The center of his forehead is adorned with the U-shaped mark (tilaka) of the Vaishnavites, known as the 'urdhapundra.'

Vishnu's four arms signify the four aims of life (Purusharthas), these are:

a) Duty and Virtue (Dharma)

b) Material Goods, Wealth, and Success (Artha)

c) Pleasure, Sexuality, and Enjoyment (Kama)

d) Liberation (Moksha)

The Lord's first right hand holds the sacred conch (shankha). The blowing of the conch symbolizes the primordial creative voice and Indian mysticism links it to the sacred sound OM, which is said to be the breath of Vishnu, pervading all space.

The second right arm gently grips a lotus. The lotus signifies the well-known yogic ideal of detachment. This is because though this beautiful flower often grows in muddy waters, neither water nor dirt are ever seen sticking to its petals. Indeed Vishnu's message is amply reflected in the lotus, and informs us to partake of life's pleasures, without getting ensnared by them.

The upper left hand holds the discus (chakra). This is a pointer to the cyclic nature of existence.

The lower left arm supports the mace (gada), which rests upside down next to Vishnu's left foot. At the metaphysical level the mace represents the power of time. Just as nothing can conquer time, the mace too is unconquerable and destroys those who oppose it.

Vishnu's loyal mount, the half-man, half-avian Garuda stands in veneration near his right leg.

This statue comes from Thammapatty (district Salem) in Tamil Nadu. The sculptor is Shri P. Sengottuvel.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
