AlOchanaamR^itaM

AlochanaamR^itaM Shakti Lacking in India I believe that the main cause of India's weakness is not subjection, nor poverty, nor a lack of spirituality or Dharma, but a dimnution of thought-power, the spread of ignorance in the motherland of Knowledge. Everywhere I see an inability or unwillingness to think - incapacity of thought or "thought-phobia"... It is the one who can fathom and learn the truth of the world by thinking more, searching more, labouring more, who will gain more Shakti.... Look at Europe.
We, however, are not worshippers of Shakti; we are worshippers of the easy way... Our civilization has become ossified, our Dharma a bigotry of externals, our spirituality a faint glimmer of light or a momentary wave of intoxication. So long as this state of things lasts, any permanent resurgence of India is impossible.

We have abandoned the Sadhana of Shakti and so the Shakti has abandoned us. We practise the yoga of love, but where there is no Knowledge or Shakti, love does not stay, narrowness and littleness come in.

- Sri Aurobindo (India's Rebirth, pp. 152)

telugu sAhitI priyulaku susvAgatam!

Here I present a collection of audio renderings of telugu poetry by various people. Sorry for the poor audio quality of some of these recordings. They have been made using simple personal audio recorders by various friends and relatives of mine. Even getting access to them was difficult.

Also, if you have any personal collections of such nature, I'd be very grateful if you could share them with me to be put on my website for everybody's benefit. I'm looking for kavitA paThanam/gAnam.

Here is a very good webpage that provides introduction to chhandas (Indian notion of poetic rhythm) called Chhandassu 101. I created a local copy to avoid losing it.
