The Mahasiddha Carbaripa :

MINIMUM ORDER OF SEVEN 6" x 4" MIXED POSTCARDS PLEASE! Carbaripa is revered in both the Buddhist and Hindu Tantric traditions. For Buddhists he is one of the eighty-four Mahasiddhas, and for the Hindus he is recognized as one of the nine great Shaivite 'Nath Siddhas', and also as a preceptor of the Hatha Yoga traditions. In his Indian Buddhist legend he is identified as a siddha from the Chamba region of the west Himalayan foothills who possessed the ability to turn people into stone through the power of his gaze. He is depicted here flying in sexual union with his consort, as he leaps across a Himalayan river gorge.
