AlochanaamR^itaMGod and KaliyugaGod always keeps for
himself a chosen country in which the higher knowledge is
chances and dangers, ... continually
for the present, in this Chaturyuga at least, that country is
India.Whenever he chooses to take the full
pleasure of ignorance, of the
dualities, of strife and wrath and
tears and weakness and selfishness, ... of the play of the Kali
[not Kaali], he
dims the knowledge in India and puts her down into weakness and
degradation so that she may retire
into herself and not interfere with
this movement of his Lila. When he wants Narayana in man to
become once again mighty and wise and blissful, then
he once more pours out the knowledge on India and raises her up so that
she may give the knowledge with its necessary consequences of might,
wisdom and bliss to the whole world.
When there is the contracted
movement of knowledge, the yogins in India withdraw from the world
practise yoga for their own liberation and delight or for the
liberation of a few disciples; but
when the movement of knowledge again
expands and the soul of India expands with it, they come forth once
more and work in the world and for the world. Yogins like
Ajatashatru and Kartavirya once more sit on the thrones of the world
and govern the nations.
One of my cherished goals for putting up this website is to collect and make
available online some of those old (pre-1975) concerts by stalwarts which are so
precious and rare to obtain. They are all locked up in the private music
collections of a few individuals, who are not willing to share them with others
for fear of loss.
That's precisely where the Internet helps, isn't it, to house music in an
indestructible but widely shareable form?
Hence I request rasikas to come forward and share with me copies of those
rare concerts so I can put them online to give everybody an oppurtunity to share
the sangItAmR^itaM ! You'll be duly recognized on the website for your
contribution. And rest assured that it will not be used for profit.
For starters, I am looking for the following:
pre-1970 concerts by M. Balamurali Krishna
pre-1975 concerts by Vinjamuri Varadaraja Iyengar, M.D.Ramanathan, GNB,
Oleti, Dwaram Venkataswamy Naidu (violin), or their gurus.
