Paintings in the style of Traditional Hindu Deities and Tibetan Thankga Art
This divination deck of 49 cards contains a smattering of the diverse and multitudinous pantheon of the Buddhist and Hindu world of deities, bodhisattvas, mandalas, demons and historical figures – the famous and the humble.

O Deity Divine! Is a coloring book that uses humor in word and art, simple short writings like limericks, and analogies from everyday western life, to teach basic ideas about Buddhism. It is crafted for lay-people, the New Age market, Yoga practitioners, people who just like humor and coloring, and those already immersed in Buddhism and Hinduism, to give them further access to the worlds of Asian art and religion through the relaxing art of coloring.
