Recent Devi Yantra purchase....one of many - 7.15.2014
We have been shopping at Lotus Sculpture for a good number of years and we have always been pleased with our purchases. As you perhaps know, buying the statues is the first step and "energizing" them at the temple is another step and the latter is important for "bonding" with the statue and to "take the metal" out of it. Putting the "deity" in the statue is a time-consuming and costly step, depending on the temple one chooses. It could range between $100 - 300. Fortunately the purchase of the statue itself at Lotus Sculpture makes it a great first experience and the next steps are equally moving, organizing the trip, purchases for the real deity, costs to the temple and swamis etc. I wished that some of the statues were more affordable, but then I understand that you offer quality product and that you run a business, not a temple. At the most a payment plan should be offered (pardon me if it is, I am not aware of it) instead of putting the item on a credit card. Personally, I do not like to associate my statues with credit. I see every item that you sell as divine, at least the path to an incredible experience with the "other" world, be it Hindu or Buddhist. Thanks for the great opportunity for shopping at Lotus Sculpture.
I received the Yantra and will have it consecrated at the Kali Temple in Burtonsville, MD. We have also bought:
Kali blessed in Burtonsville, MD, a.k.a Miss Kitty
The Goddess with the mirror (she is now Meenakshi, blessed at the Murugan temple of North America, a.k.a Babe
Ganesh, a.k.a Bongo on drums, blessed at the Ganesh temple, Queens
Muruga and his peacock,a.k.a. Murray, blessed at Palani Andavar's shrine, Murugan temple of North America.
The peacock lamp
They have all been blessed and contrary to popular belief, I do not have a special shrine or altar in my house, I place them wherever I desire in the house, bedroom, living room and I do not feel disrespectful towards them. I figure, if they can see me in form and formless, what difference does it make whether they are in my bedroom or in a special part of the house dedicated to them? I do not believe in strict adherence to rituals. I do not possess these statues for religious purposes only. We offer them the food we eat on a daily basis. They also have special names. They make us happy, we love them. The represent beauty, a presence of something divine or more, I do not know. I know that they love us and smile in turn, NOT ALL THE TIME and that is how I know that the deity is here with us. They sometimes show sadness. Basically the relationship with them is an endless labor of love, cooking for them, celebrating birthdays with them, buying fruits for bongo, gardening for them and so forth. The experience is unbelievable.

Best place to buy any kind of Hindu or Buddhist icon! - 7.10.2014
Kyle Tortora provides a great service in making these murthies available, and best of all, he has a deep understanding of Hinduism and Buddhism, and the esoterics of worship.
I've recently bought my second murthy from Lotus. Kyle maintains an outstanding inventory of beautiful statues in all materials and sizes and his prices are extremely reasonable. Shipping was super fast! His customer service is among the best I've ever encountered.
Thank you Lotus Sculpture!

Better than going to India to find the perfect fit. - 7.4.2014
Having gone to India to purchase statues many times, spending days trying to find good craftsmanship and then arranging the import is no more ! The wood sculpture that I bought for my husband for our fifth wedding anniversary was so much better in person than even in the pictures. Thank you Lotus Scuplture ! I will be purchasing more in the future for sure.

Very pleased with my purchase! - 7.4.2014
I wanted a Buddha for my garden. I looked on many sites on the internet and just couldn't find the right one. Then I found your website and loved the finish and color tones that they have. The delivery was fast and the item was packaged very well for shipping. It is really too pretty to put in the garden so I put it in my living room instead. Looks very beautiful! Thanks so much!

Kwan Yin 84 inch statue - 6.14.2014
Kyle -- The Kwan Yin statue is absolutely stunning!! The detail, the scale, the warmth of the wood, and the serenity of the expression are exactly what I was looking for. The piece looked amazing online, but it is far, far more impressive in person. It is truly the centerpiece of my home now, and I can't stop staring at her. Thank you so much for your prompt service, for answering all of my questions, and for packing the statue so carefully. Now what in the heck am I going to do with this 8 foot tall crate in my garage?! :) :)
