Sage Vyasa had mentally composed a vast poem and was in quest for a scribe who could record it. Brahma suggests that he address Ganapati, invoke him properly and invite him to write the epic. Ganesha accepts to be the scribe provided that the movement of his stylus on the palm leaves would not be interrupted even once. Vyasa in turn asks him not to record anything before understanding it perfectly.

In the grove, outside his cottage, sage Vyasa sits on a leopard skin dictating the epic. Close to him lie the yoga danda and his kamandalu. In the niche of the cottage wall is a lit diya. Opposite him sits Ganesha on a small rug listening intently as Vyasa explains with his index finger raised. Vyasa's hair are knotted at the top like most sages and he also wears tulsi beads in his neck and arms. His gaze is set in the distance as he visualizes the epic.

As for Ganesha, he is represented in pristine white colour. With great concentration, his long eye-brows raised and the eye very attentive, he commences to write the Mahabharata. Eager to confine every word spoken by Vyasa in ink, and in his haste to write, Ganesha has allowed his scarf to slide behind his back. His vahana, the mouse, patiently waits behind him, for Ganesha to successfully complete the venture and then carry him back to his abode.

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 !
