Image Which Leads to Peace in Society….

Bhagawan Shiva’s marriage to Parvati has been a theme of absorbing interest since time immemorial. Kalidas has vividly described this event in his poem Kumarasambhava, as has Tulsidas in his Ramacharitmanas. The theme is celebrated across all art mediums - sculpture, painting, bronze, in music, dance and poetry, classical and folk, and also in cinema.

In the act of marrying Parvati, Shiva is called Kalyana-Sundara - ‘the beautiful bridegroom’. This marriage is called Kalyana-Mahotsava, and is celebrated every year with much fanfare and is said to bestow shanti - peace, on the whole society. Bronze images such as this are placed in a specially decorated pandal and the whole sequence of marriage rites as enjoined in the shastras are enacted, complete with an officiating priest chanting Vedic mantras.

Several Chola age inscriptions refer to bronze images of Kalyana-Sundara-Murti. Lord Shiva is shown holding Uma’s right hand in his own right palm, an act called pani-grahana, or taking the hand. This signifies the actual act of accepting the wife. Bhagawan Vishnu performs the kanya-dana, gifting of the girl in his capacity as Devi Parvati’s brother. He is shown pouring water from a pitcher onto the couple’s hands, thus granting the ceremony formal sacrality.

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
