Ambika Pallavi is composed in praise of Goddess Ambika (Divine Mother) by India’s most revered social reformer and philosopher Adi Sankara. Andal Kouthuvam is in praise of Lord Vishnu. In Priye Charuseele a repentant and desperate Lord Krishna is seen pleading to win back his beloved Radha and Thillana is one of the presentation styles of Bharatanatyam, where a host of dancers perform together, exploring the extent of strong kinetics.

Bharatanatyam

Bharatanatyam, which originated in Tamil Nadu, a southern state in India, is one of the oldest classical dance forms of the country. It is based on ‘Natya Sasthra’ written by the sage Bharata and hence the name. Bharatanatyam is a combination of Nritta (pure dance), Nritya (histrionic expression) and Natya (dramatic representation). The musical component of Bharatanatyam, which is Carnatic in style, uses Sanskrit, Telugu, and Kannada, besides Tamil. This classical dance form is full of unfettered rhythmic movements and expressions, which are devotional in spirit, highly stylized and sophisticated in technique.

Anita Ratnam

Anita Ratnam is one of the leading Bharatanatyam dancers in India. Anita Ratnam’s profound insight and vast experience in Bharatanatyam has enabled her to combine traditional as well as innovative elements, rendering a new dimension to it. She is the guiding force behind Arangham Dance Theatre based in Chennai. Anita Ratnam learned Bhartanatayam under Guru Adayar K. Lakshman (Chennai), Smt. S. Sarada and Sarada Hoffman, both of Kalakshetra, a premier academy set up at Chennai by Smt. Rukmini Devi Arundale for the preservation of traditional values in Indian dance and music. Anitha Ratnam has also learned Mohiniyattam and Kathakali .

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
