I just wanted to say that I find your scholarly knowledge to be amazing! I am familiar with many of the authors in your bibliographies and am amazed at your extensive readings.
I enjoy your articles so much..even tho they are meant to promote sales, that aside, it is nice to read 'religious' articles that are full of the love, goodness and compassion that we should all strive to practice in our every day lives.
I always look forward to your artilces. You must be a very learned and wise person.
I love your frequent newsletter on different topics with all the illustrations. I have learned so much of the Indian Culture from your newsletters. Please keep sending more to me, I am always excited to open your mail the first. Thankyou
As an academic and researcher I am incredibly impressed by your articles which I always find make a highly informative and fascinating read. The enthusiasm shown for your diverse subjects and illustrations used make your writing an enjoyable learning experience.
I would like to say "thank you" for the generosity in sending me your interesting articles regarding the history of India and the beliefs that have inspired some of her most beautiful art. I feel that I have come to understand and appreciate Indian culture much more as a result, and have also been able to explore my own beliefs in the process.
Thank you again
Your articles are always written so eloquently with Divine Wisdom. Thank you for your work. I look forward to reading it every month. God Bless You.
I just wish to say how much I enjoy your posts and updates. I find it interesting, as a Free Mason , how much Buddhist philosophy and ritual is paralleled in Masonic obediences. Whether these parallels are something absorbed by my ancient brethren or are common to ritualistic works I dont know. Thanks again and Happy Trails.
I love reading your monthly articles, they are inspiring! Why is it that India is the cradle of so many world religions? Buddhism, Hinduism and Sikhism to name but three!
Best wishes and kind regards,
Wonderful article...thank you very much..will send it on to others who might appreciate it...sincerely,
I enjoy reading such stories. Thanks again. Blessings and greetings.
I just wanted to say thank you , what beautiful art work and love the stories , I have very much enjoyed both and learned a little too. Thank you again
At this time I can't afford to buy the lovely things you offer, but I want to thank you for keeping me on your mailing list and sending me these wonderful descriptions of the mystic religious and cultural aspects of India. They are interesting, well written, and help me to see things from the outside and understand them a little more. It is very true that it is easier to emerge from a maze when part of you can hover overhead to see the whole problem. I started as a simple doll collector, but find your articles add a richness to the aspect of the dolls and my own life. Thanks again.
I cannot begin to tell you how much I truly enjoy these monthly submissions. They are so insightful and interesting. Just thought I would let you know that I rank Exotic India's monthly mailings as among my very favorites! Keep up the good work!
Your monthly articles on philosophy and iconography are some of the best I've been able to find since searching over the last few years. Always very clearly and logically explained in their spiritual significance and deep philosophical upderpinning rather than just superficial and sentimental devotional tracts any New Age shop has. Look forward to them every month and print them off to save.
I just wanted to thank you for the beautiful and inspiring articles that accompany your site. I love the care, depth and clarity with which they are written. You are doing a great service to us all, and I am grateful.
Shanti, Schlama, Shalom, Salaam
Thank you so much for yet another wonderful article. I have learned so much about Eastern philosophy, iconography, and theology through reading your monthly articles. I keep a file of them, and often refer to one or another in preparing presentations at the Interfaith Center I help direct.
Please continue your very important contribution to the education and enlightenment of human kind.
Thank you for providing such a wonderful, informative news letter.I am SO glad I discovered your site. Thanks again
I have greatly enjoyed your articles on a subject I know much too little about. Keep them coming! Thanks

Your newsletter is a wonderful idea! I fear I am merely a "window shopper" in your gallery, but your articles are most informative! You gain much merit by your service in educating the public about the significance of this sacred art. May this work also bring you much joy and prosperity!
I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your articles on India. I read each one and many I have printed out to save as I am deeply interested in the culture, philosophies and arts of your country. I visited South India last winter and hope to get back to explore North India next year. I am an artist and am doing a series of paintings that have resulted from my love of India. I have 2 works in a show this month that are my exploration into the complex dichotomy of Shiva and his Dance.
Again thank you for the great articles and for your fine company.
Having read and enjoyed your "Article of the Month" for several years, I just want to thank and congratulate you for these excellent texts. As a journalist specializing in religious questions I have learned much - especially about Buddhism and the different facets of Hinduism.
Now I have a request (or a proposal if you like): Would it be possible for you to publish something about the bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara/Chenrezig/Kwan Yin? He/she is one of the most fascinating figures in the buddhist pantheon and I would be very glad to learn more about "He (she) who hears the cries of the world".
Once again, you have done us proud, to put forth another well written discourse. I hope you are one with the great mind, the universe, brahman, only coming out to illuminate, like a firefly, a dark night in the world of men.
Shine on, my friend.
Dr. Jan, Ireland.

A few years ago I purchased a carved necklace fm Tibet with all these symbols and it called to me today to find out what they all mean since I am immersing myself in practical Buddhism, such a noble and radiant way of Life!!
I really enjoy the monthly newsletter and the illustrations that come with it are very nice, thank you.
Just a note of thanks for your very interesting website. Its only one of few that I look foward to. Best Regards
I have been reading your current and past articles and am very impressed about the reasearch and text you have produced.
Please keep it up. It is very good work.
Dear Exotic India,
This sight is so very beautiful, with beautiful stories and images!! As I read them now being in Europe and normally living in India, I now understand much more about all the Hindu stories about the Gods. Good to let the people know, what they are all about and what they mean. I passed this sight on to my family, who agrees with me about what I just wrote down.
Good luck to you with this sight!!!

I had to write to tell you how much I look forward to receiving the Exotic India newsletter. I always learn something, am always inspired, and am always appreciative, even though I have not shared my thanks with you until today.
What you are doing has real value. Thank you for your efforts! Many blessing to you.
Namaste! Thank you for your articles which, having travelled around India, I find informative and most interesting. Keep sending!
Thank you for sending me the above reading material.I am a Chinese reader. Because of my job working in a Buddhist temple in Shanghai and work as a editor of a free Buddhist journal.I knew your "Exotic India"for a few years. I think you are great and one of the best I know on line. I give you sincere gratitude from the bottom of my heart. I love India and her people and her brilliant spiritual culture. It is through you and your "Exotic India" that I find myself more close to the truth of Indian life and spirit. Thank you again.
Thank you for sending these, they are wonderful! I enjoy reading
them and love looking at the beautiful illustrations, also.
YOUR ARTICLES ARE EXCITING, ENLIGHTENING AND EAGERLY AWAITED. I HAVE SAVED THOSE I HAVE RECEIVED IN A SPECIAL BINDER AND REFER TO THEM WHEN NEEDED. THANK YOU MANY TIMES OVER.
Your articles/News Letters are superb with great details. I would appreciate if you can post any information on Meditation.

I would like you to know how much I enjoy your emailings. Often, the writing reminds me of things I already know but forget to notice day by day as I get caught up in the mundane. Thanks!
It is already a few months, I have been getting these monthly articles from you. I appreciate them very much and enjoy reading them again and again. Through these articles I am attached to my Indian roots. They are very poetic, nicely written and always have a lot of interesting information.
Though, I do not have any talent for writing, but reading I enjoy most. I feel myself very lucky that I am subscribed on your site. I sincerely appreciate your talent and wish you success in your work. Thank you very much.
