About The DVD

Mukhanach is a most popular mask dance of North Bengal and closely connected with the Rajvanshi tribe of South Dinajpur district of West Bengal. Mukhanach is an agrarian mode of celebration by recreating faces of God in dynamics of the myth and orality and connected with the celebration for prosperity and peace. Mukhanach is mainly celebrated during the local Gajon Festival in the month of Chaitra and linked with cultivation. Another major punctuation of this oral theatric tradition is related with Kali Puja that takes place on Deepawali day. The unique faces of God created in mask of various colour temperatures bring the mythology alive through religious movements and dynamic stances of various characters. This documentary highlights the oral tradition of Mukhanach celebration, the mask making and the rituals apart from touching upon the myths of the region.

Tina, USA
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.
