AlOchanaamR^itaM

AlochanaamR^itaM Yoga and the West It is becoming imperatively necessary that Indian knowledge should reveal in the Western way its scientific foundations. For if we do not do it ourselves, the Europeans will do it for us and do it badly, discrediting the knowledge in the process.
For this society of European and European-led inquirers [Max-Mueller, Theosophists etc.] arose from an impulse on which the Time-Spirit itself insists; their object, vaguely grasped at by them, was at bottom the systematic coordination, explanation and practice of Oriental religion and Oriental mental and spiritual discipline.
Unfortunately, as always happens to a great effort in unfit hands, it stumbled at the outset and went into strange paths.
...
A vain attempt to thrust in modern physical science into the explanation of psychical movements, - to explain
  for instance pranayam in the terms of oxygen and hydrogen! ... to make a hopeless amalgam and jumble of science, religion and philosophy all expressed in the terms of the imagination - this has been the scientific method of Theosophy. The result is that it lays its hands on truth and muddles it so badly that it comes out to the world as an untruth. And there now abound other misstatements of Indian truth, less elaborate but almost as wild and wide as Theosophy's.


From this growing confusion we must deliver the future of humanity.

- Sri Aurobindo (The Psychology of Yoga, from his notebook of 1911).

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.
