About the DVD


The film documents the lost heritage of Urumi - a rare weapon of Kalaripayattu, the martial art of Kerala. In older days, it used to have seven flexible blades, running up to 12 feet, though no such specimen can be found today. The film traces its origin and tries to understand it’s mystical dangerous portents and symbolism. The martial art tradition goes back to the mythological time of Parashurama and is adumbrated in ancient manuscripts of Dhanurveda. The film imbibes the morality or Urumi from great masters of martial art and shows the rigorous and exacting training required under the vigilant eyes of a Guru for using it efficiently and appropriately. The women never logged behind in using this art for survival. The film also traces the Nair resistance of colonial days, using Urumi.

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.
