In the noble heroic age of the Aryan people there was not so
shouting and gesticulating, but the endeavour they set in motion lasted
many centuries. The Indian's
endeavour [nowadays] lasts for a day or two.
You say what is needed is emotional excitement, to fill the country
with enthusiasm. We did all that in the political field during the
Swadeshi period; but all we did now lies in the dust....
Therefore I no longer wish to make
emotional excitement, feeling and
mental enthusiasm the base. I want to make a vast and herioc
the foundation of my yoga; in all the activities of the being, of the aadhaar [vessel] based on that
equality, I want a complete, firm and unshakable Shakti; over that
ocean of Shakti I want the vast radiation of the sun of Knowledge and
in that luminous vastness an established ecstasy of infinite love and
bliss and oneness. I do not want tens of thousands of disciples; it
will be enough if I can get as instruments of God a hundred complete
men free from petty egoism. I have no faith in the customary trade of
guru. I do not want to be a guru. What
I want is that a few, awakened
at my touch or at that of another, will
manifest from within, their
sleeping divinity and realise the divine life. It is such men who will
raise this country.
In this section, I present a huge collection of tyagaraja kritis rendered by
various musicians as part of various concerts/LPs/cassettes spanning over 50
years. This was painstakingly collected by a gentleman and came into
my hands. The concert details such as date and in some cases, the artist names
are not listed. If you know them please post them on the
archive's discussion forum.
