Lakshmi the goddess of earthly abundance sits cross-legged on a full-blooming pink lotus which shoots up on an extended green stalk, sprouting from the depths of the cosmic sea. The shooting lotus is a symbol of life and growth. This is further emphasized by a number of blossoms around her which are in various stages of growth. Though Lakshmi is the Indian archaic mother of life, she is almost always shown as a lovely and young woman.

The four-armed deity's ample form signifies her capacity to nourish and sustain. Though devoid of any overtly sexual characteristics the artist nevertheless has embellished her with some graceful feminine attributes expressed in her essentially curvaceous form, highlighted for example through her flowing robes and the slight contours marking the curves and folds of her stomach. The rich vegetative motives framing her in the background express her fertilizing nature.

Rising from the depths of water and expanding its petals on the surface, the lotus (kamala) is the most beautiful evidence offered to the eye of the self-engendering fertility of the bottom. Through its appurtenance, it gives proof of the life-supporting power of the all-nourishing cosmic waters, the infinite ocean out which all elements of the universe arise, and back into which they must again dissolve.

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.

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 !
