The writing of this text was entirely due to the grace of the supreme lord and the grace of my Gurudev Sri Swami Satchidananda the founder of Satchidananda Ashram and the Integral Yoga institute in Virgina with centers in several countries.

Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
