About the CD

The film documents Brahadisvara temple, built of granite by Rajaraja chola (985-1012 AD) to honour Shiva as Adavallan an accomplished dancer, and his various manifestations. It has a central shrine. 150 feet square, a vimana 200 feet high, a huge inner courtyard, 250 by 500 feet, wall paintings done under Nayaks, and 108 dance poses of Shiva.

The temple is sanctified periodically, at 12 year intervals, by a celebration of Mahakumbha Abhishekham at the 1000-year-old Chola Temple of Brhadisvara Temple at Thanjavur in Tamil Nodu. The film records rare footage of all the stages of Abhishekham starting from Sankalpa to the pouring of sacred water from the top of the temple. It delves deep into the process of sanctifying the 132 sacrificial parts of Yagyashala. The Kumbha worship and appeasement of nine planets, sanctification of pitchers and Dik puja or worship of cardinal directions are covered in this film. This rare documentation records the great orality and ritualistic heritage of Mahakumbha Abhishekham, and should become a reference milestone in future.

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.
