From the CD

Have a peek into the life and works of the multi-faceted personality of Dr. K.S. Karanth, writer, musician, Yakshgana expert, social activist and children’s playwright. When he began his journey in the adult world during the days of freedom struggle, he was influenced by Mahatma Gandhi, worked on Charkha – the spinning wheel, and tried to popularize Khadi. Yakshgana impressed him and he tried to understand its drama and music. He made efforts to improve upon it. He discovered new elements in it. In Yakshgana, there is appeal to drama, but the ideal is imaginary, and music is linked with song, which should depict emotion. The language should be emotive. But the body language has to be like the language of sculpture. The symbolic allegory of men and women trekking the path of their lives is what Ykshgana has the potential to be.

Dr. Kapila Vatsyayan, who interacts with Dr. Karanth, asks him about why he is attracted by tragedy. He responds to say that one has to be conscious of the fact that our stay here is transitory, and not to be conscious of that, means not be oneself. He laments that even God has been adulterated. It requires cleverness to survive. We have learnt the value of gold, but we must learn the value of tradition.

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.
