A long war had been waged between the gods and the asuras. The king of asuras, Mahisasura, won the war and established himself in heaven. To regain their lost turf, all the gods concentrated their power in the form of fire. The flames united into a blazing sphere, which took the shape of the goddess. Durga defeated the armies of the asuras and fought Mahisa, who took many forms to fight her, and finally that of a buffalo.

The above is an introduction to the event that takes place here. Durga, with her multiple arms, glows in the golden complexion, gleaming more in a black attire. The artist clothes her in black to express her anger. She holds attributes of all gods as she attacks Mahisa, who is seen to be emerging from the severed head of the buffalo. For him, the battle seems to have already been lost, with the goddess piercing his chest and her lion gnawing at his leg. The latter has been given human features and a crown, depicting his importance and association with a prime goddess.

If observed separately, the lower half of the canvas depicts violence and blood but the upper half expresses tranquility and benevolence.

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 !
