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.

Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!

I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.

I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
