About the DVD

Situated fifty miles northeast of mysore, comprising Vindhyagiri and Chandragiri hills, Shravana Belagola is the Kashi of Jains, replete with Jaina Basadis or temples, reservoirs, enormous sculptures, caved out of rocky hills between the tenth and twelfth century. It houses the 58.8 feet statue of Bahubali, a symbol of sacrifice and renunciation. The towering Gomateswars, carved out of rock, stands out, among other Jaina Shrines, scaling the horizon. He is the saintly son of Adinatha, the first Tirtthankara. He stands rigid, oblivious of the anthills and creepers growing between and around his feet. The sculptures is one of the finest specimens of tenth century Western Ganga work. the camera passes through the Chandragiri hill, a space for great departure and eternal salvation, attained by seers and saints. The great emperor Chandragupta Maurya came here with his Jaina teacher Bhadrabahu and starved himself to death according to the Jaina Sallekhana tradition. The film explores the great collection of sacred Prakrit texts, and seeks a holistic vision of Jaina philosophy, iconography and ritual.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
