About the CD

The sacred land of Dharmasthala is situated on the Western Ghats of Southern Karnataka.

For several millennia, Lord Manjunath has been worshipped in the form of Linga. The Shaivite deity is worshipped by Vaishnavite Priests and the traditional Dharmadhikari is from a Jaina family.

The film focuses on the convergence of rituals and showcases rock temples and classical elements in the folk deities or Shiva Gana of Dharmasthala. Lord Manjunatha’s temple has unique judicial governance, where a devout write his or her petition to the Lord, who pronounces his judgment through his earthly representative, the dharmadhikari, and this is accepted by the court of Law. These judicial records are known as Hoilu, which are systematically preserved since 1925 for reference. The documentation covers the huge kitchen where 5000 Kgs of rice are cooked everyday to feed devotees. It highlights how mass marriages take place every three years which are funded by the temple, apart from marriages solemnized on all auspicious days. The film offers a glimpse of the ecclesiastical deliberations, Guru Kula, conservation of heritage manuscripts and Museum artifacts. It is a tribute to Dharmasthala, the land of devotion, sectarian truthfulness, tolerance, patronage and justice.

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.
