About The DVD

Goa, situated on the western coast of India attracts a number of tourists for it’s beautiful sea beaches and lush greenery. The Portuguese, who conquered Goa in 1510 C.E., made it the trade capital of their empire. Gradually, they took control of the neighboring areas and managed to channelize most of the trade on the west coast through the city. The Portuguese were not only interested in trade but had also come to spread the Christian religion.

With the coming of the Portuguese rulers, their religion as well as their way of life had a tremendous impact on Goan culture. Soon after they came, the Portuguese set about making the city of Velha Goa (Old Goa) their capital and it came to be known as “the Rome of the Orient”. Splendid churches were constructed. Even today, there is an Iberian aura of the old feeling that Goa must have looked like a ‘little Portugal’. The art of Europe is depicted beautifully in the Churches and Convents of Goa. These monuments have become an integral part of our cultural heritage.

The UNESCO bestowed the status of World Cultural Heritage Site to Churches and Convents of Goa in the year 1986.

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.
