O Kali, my Mother full of Bliss! Enchantress of the almighty Shiva!
In Thy delirious joy Thou dancest, clapping Thy hands together!
Thou art the Mover of all that move, and we are but Thy helpless toys
...Ramakrishna Paramahansa

Kali and her attendants dance to the beat of the music generated by Lord Shiva on his drum, accompanied by animal-headed attendants. Associated with chaos and destruction, Kali's own retinue brandishes swords and skull cups from which they drink a continuous stream of intoxicating blood. Kali, like Shiva, has a crescent moon in her hair, but in all other respects the two are distinguished from one another. While Shiva has a sweet expression, plump body, and white complexion, dark kali's emaciated limbs, angular gestures, and fierce grimace convey a wilder, uncontrollable temperament. Her loose hair, skull garland, and tiger wrap twirl around her body as she gyrtaes to the rhythm of Shiva's drum.

This terrific and poignant imagery starkly reveals the nature of Kali as the Divine Mother. The great Bengali bhakta Ramaprasad expresses his feelings thus:

Behold my Mother playing with Shiva,
lost in an ecstasy of joy!
Drunk with a draught of celestial wine,
She reels, and yet does not fall.
Erect She stands on Shiva's bosom,
and the earth Trembles under Her tread;
She and Her Lord are mad with frenzy,
casting Aside all fear and shame.
... Ramprasad (1718-75)

Testimonials
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
