About the Artist

Smt. Gopika Verma, the renowned Mohiniattam dancer came under the direct purview of Kalamandalam Sm. Kalyani Kuttyamma. She was fortunate to learn Abhinaya, which is the quintessence of Mohiniyattam from Sri Kalamandalam Krishnana Nair, doyen of the Kathakali stage. Gopika Verma has performed exclusively at various art festivals, sabhas and temples, nationwide and internationally. Her Mohiniyattam is marked by extreme grace and fluidity of movements, transmitting radiance through expressions that at times sigh with nostalgia, purity and sanctity, while being blessed with geometrical precision and technical finesses. Love for this graceful and gentle dance of soft rhythm has enabled Gopika to transmit through movements and expression, her own personal worship of the Divine.

About the DVD

Mohiniyattam is a classical dance form from Kerala, India. It is one of the eight Indian classical dance forms recognized by the Sangeet Natak Akademi. It is considered a very graceful form of dance meant to be performed as solo recitals by women. The term Mohiniyattam comes the words “Mohini” meaning a woman who enchants onlookers and “aattam” meaning graceful and sensuous body movements. The word “Mohiniyattam” literally means “dance of the enchantress”. The essence of Mohiniyattam is in the emphasis on “Abinaya” through which the artist directly reaches out to the rasilkas and transport them to a divine plane.

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.
