Richly attired and bedecked in precious jewelry, Goddess Lakshmi, the granter of prosperities sits majestically poised atop a resplendent lotus. One of her legs is visible while the other foot lies invisible beneath the folds of her lower dress. The benevolent goddess that she is, her two lower arms make the gestures of granting boons to her devotees, while the two upper hold lotuses. The first lotus is a symbol of fertility and life which is rooted in and takes its strength from the primordial waters. The lotus and the goddess Shri-Lakshmi by association represent the fully developed blossoming of organic life. The second lotus refers to purity and spiritual power. Rooted in the mud but blossoming above the water, completely uncontaminated by the mud, the lotus represents spiritual perfection and authority. Goddess Lakshmi thus suggests more than the fertilizing powers of moist soil and the mysterious powers of growth. She suggests a perfection or state of refinement that transcends the material world.
She is shown flanked by four elephants pouring nectar onto her from golden, jeweled containers. As symbols of sovereignty and fertility, the elephants convey Lakshmi's association with these highly desirable qualities which are often sought after or mentioned as rewards, by worshippers of this Great Goddess.
A very comprehensive site for a company with a good reputation.

I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
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.
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 !
