Gandhi seva sadan Kathakali academy (Kathakali) Priyadardhini Govind( Bharatanatyam) Kathakali, Kerala's colorful classical dance style is performed with elaborate masks and make-up. It provides ample scope for the artiste to display his facial expressions- the movement of the eyebrows, eyes and perhaps every muscle in the face, Gandhi seva sadan Kathakali academy presents a scene from the puranic story Kalyana Sougandhikam. This ancient story unites the Ramayana and the Mahabharata by featuring one character from each of these great epics. Sadanam manikandan plays Bhima and Kalanilayam Balakrishnan plays Hanuman. This is followed by an expression oriented item in Bharatanatyam style by Priyadarshini Govind, a disciple of Smt. Kalanidhi Narayanan. Priyadarshini Govind dances to purandara Dasa’s Jagadhodharana. The poet describes how Yasoda treats her little son Krishna as a human child despite having foreknowledge of the fact that Krishna was God incarnate. We also visit kalamandir, a dance school instituted by H.H.Shantananda Sawami at Singapore.

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.
