AlOchanaamR^itaM

AlochanaamR^itaM Tapasya, Jnaanam and Shakti Indians!   it is the spirituality of India, the Sadhana of India - tapasya, jnanam, sakti  - that must make us free and great. And these great things of the East are ill-rendered by their inferior English equivalents - discipline, philosophy, strength.
Tapasya is more than discipline;
it is the materialisation in ourselves by spiritual means of the divine energy creative, preservative and destructive. Jnanam is more than philosophy, it is the inspired and direct knowledge which comes of what our ancients called drsti spiritual sight. Sakti is more than strength, it is the universal energy which moves the stars, made individual.

It is the East that must conquer in India's uprising. It is the Yogin who must stand behind the political leader or manifest within him; Ramadas must be born in one body with Shivaji, The divorce of intellect and spirit, strength and purity may help a European revolution, but by a European strength we shall not conquer.

A plea to rasikas

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:

I am especially looking for any clear and well-pronounced renditions of rare tyAgarAja kR^itis.

I am NOT interested in hosting contemporary artists' works on my website as there are umpteen other sites for that (e.g., musicindiaonline.com).

If you have anything interesting, please email to sai@cs.utah.edu .

Transfer methods

You can send your collection to me in several ways: I'll put them on my website for everybody's benefit soon after receiving them.
