With her sickle raised in jubilant triumph, the lithe-limbed Kali rejoices over the supine body of her husband Shiva. Though inert, Shiva continues to beat his hour-glass drum (damaru), from the sound of which is said to have sprung out the entire manifested existence. His body symbolically lies over heap of mounds, referring to his dwelling place high above in the Himalayas (Mount Kailash).

The sculptor seems to have stressed upon the aspect of Kali associated with the cremation grounds. Towards this end he has even adorned her head with a pair of crossed bones and human skulls. Her short skirt is entirely made up of severed human heads. Nonetheless, being the beautiful female that she is, numerous common ornaments preferred by young women also adorn her body. These include various long and short necklaces as also armlets, bracelets and earrings.

In three of her four arms, the goddess holds terrible attributes related to death. These include the upraised sickle, severed head and a bowl full of blood. The fourth however, makes an interesting contrast. It is in the abhaya mudra, or the fear-removing gesture. Thus Kali here bestows on her devotees the boon of fearlessness, specifically the fear of death. This, in fact, is the essential message of Kali - that pain, sorrow, decay, death, and destruction are not to be overcome or conquered by denying them or explaining them away. Pain and sorrow are woven into the texture of man's life so thoroughly that to negate them is ultimately futile. For man to realize the fullness of his being, for man to exploit his potential as a human being, he must finally accept this dimension of existence. Kali's boon is freedom, the freedom of the child to revel in the moment, and it is won only after confrontation or acceptance of death.

Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
