Shiva, like a complex, personality, has multiple forms and a paradoxical character. He is a deity who often inhabits the extremes of human behavior.

This awesome iconic image of Shiva depicts him drinking the lethal poison which threatened to contaminate the world. As the story goes, the gods once, decided to churn out amrit, the celestial nectar from the primeval waters. The gods and the demons began to twist and twirl the ocean and the waters began to curdle. What first formed on the surface was dark and sticky, a viscid scum, emitting caustic fumes – it was the dreaded poison halahal. The poison began to spread all around, contaminating the waters and polluting the air. In fact, the very existence of the cosmos wat at stake. Just then Shiva appeared on the scene, scooped up the lethal fluid and drank it.

Shiva, in this image is shown doing just that. Ganga can be seen in the swirling hair of Shiva, as the crescent moon adorns his brow. Snakes form his necklace and also slide across his trident. Along with the trishula hang his damaru, the hour-glass shaped drum and the kamandala, the pot used for rituals and ablutions.

In this sculpture, Shiva is shown as arising out of the cosmic ocean. The artist has given the curving lines depicting waves, which stand out very well in relation to rest of the image.

Thanks again Exotic India! Always perfect! Great books, India's wisdom golden peak of knowledge!!!
Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.

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 !
