The blue-hued, four-armed Vishnu sits in padmasana on a full-blown lotus flower painted large enough to accommodate his entire form. The curves of his bend knees merge subtly with the circularity of the lotus. The four arms of Vishnu express dominion over the four directions of space and thus absolute power, and also further represent the four aims of life, namely dharma, artha, kama, and moksha. He holds the following symbols in his hands:
The lower right hand holds the conch. The conch is the symbol of the origin of existence. It has the form of a multiple spiral evolving from one point into ever-increasing spheres. It is associated with the element water, and thus is spoken of as born of the causal waters. When blown, it produces a sound associated with the primeval sound from which creation developed.

The upper right arm holds the mace. "The mace is the power of knowledge" (Vishnu Purana), which dazzles and intoxicates the mind, hence it is called the stupefier-of-the-mind (Kaumodaki).

The lower left hand holds the discus. The discus of Vishnu is called 'the beauteous sight,' known in Sanskrit as Sudarshana. It represents the limitless power which invents and destroys all the spheres and forms of the universe, the nature of which is to revolve.

The upper left arm holds the lotus. The lotus symbolizes the universe, the flower that unfolds in all its glory from the formless endlessness of the causal waters. The immaculate lotus rising from the depth of the water and ever remote from the shore is also associated with the notion of purity.

The yellow scarf around his shoulders spreads out in rhythmic curves. The lower part too is draped in a similarly colored dhoti. On his forehead Vishnu sports the distinctive Vaishnavite U-shaped tilaka known as Urdhapundara. Similar Vaishnavite marks adorn his hands allover.

A unique aspect of this portrait of Vishnu is his crown, shaped like a conical skullcap, topped with an arc-shaped diadem.

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