About the CD

The film revolves around the most revered Mahamastakabhishekam of Bahubali – Karkala that takes place every 12 years. It begins by establishing the Jaina Heritage site or Basadi of Karkala. Then it documents the 10 day ritualistic bathing of Bahubali who towers 42 feet tall to signal his momentous presence. Kheer Abhisheka, the homa, procession and taking out of Utsava Murti punctuate the film. It shows how Kalashas are tied with sacred thread for Kalasha puja, and how, an the 10th day, 1008 Kalashas, and 350 tender coconut water filled Kalashas, are poured on the head of Bahubali, for bathing him, in different colours. It shows sugarcane juice, 350 ltrs of milk being poured and 75 kgs of rice powder, sandal, turmeric being sprinkled. This document on celestial bathing provides a window in to the socio-theological depths of Jaina philosophy.

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.
