Handicrafts

Handicrafts are devices or works of art that are made completely by hand or by the use of relatively simple tools. Such goods are usually made in the traditional way of manufacturing goods. Therefore, the knowledge of the art of craft is usually passed down from one generation to another. The items made using these traditional methods of manufacturing are usually produced in smaller quantities and they often represent the culture or religious beliefs of the community that makes them. The goods are also handmade from natural materials that are found in the environment of the particular economy.

God Vayu: The God of the Winds

Posted by Art Of Legend India [dot] Com On 4:36 AM

According to Hinduism, god Vayu is a primary Hindu deity, the god of the winds, the father of Hanuamn and Bhima. The word Vayu is the Sanskrit word for air. He is also known as Vata and Pavana. He is one of the Panchamahabhuta the "five great elements" in Hinduism. In Vedic times he was much revered as one of the Hindu Triad. After that age, in the Brahmanic era, he was reduced in status but he still continues to occupy a certain eminent position in the Hindu pantheon. Exceptionally handsome in appearance, he moves about noisily in a shining chariot drawn by a pair of red or purple horses. He is also represented as a fair-complexioned man riding a deer and holding a white flag.

God Vayu roams all over the earth and the heavens though his home is in the north-west, a quarter which he rules exclusively. He is featured as a destructive god who has an intemperate character and is often subject to violent desires which he never strives to repress. He is also said to be the king of the Gandharvas. He does not occupy a very prominent position in the Vedic hymns. He is considered the friend of the waters. He is sometimes called the 'bearer of perfumes'. 

God Vayu in Hindu belief has fallen far from his eminence as one of the Vedic triad. He is a destructive god of intemperate character and violent desires. He roams everywhere over the earth and in the heavens, though his abode is in the north-west quarter. He is also said to be the king of the Gandharvas, who live in the foothills of Mount Meru. 

God Vayu's lusts seem to have been equally indiscriminate. Though married to a daughter of Visvakarma, he is credited with a number of illegitimate children, among them Hanuman, the monkey god in the Ramayana, who helped Rama. Another son was Bhima, one of the Pandavas in the Mahabharata, a man of great strengrth and voracious appetite and a great warrior. Bhima came to be Vayu's son more respectably than did Hanuman, for he was conceived by his mother Kunti as a result of a prayer to Vayu.All paintings are courtesy of Art of Legend India.
