PAL DVD's and VCD's can be played on the majority of recent NTSC players available in the USA and the rest of the world.
The Kartigai Deepam video
Filmed over four years, this ten day festival (actually 17 days) is the annual highlight of devotional life in Tiruvannamalai, culminating in the Kartigai Deepam (beacon) being lit on the summit of Arunachala. The two hours of film will cover every detail of the festival and its significance for devotees.
Every effort has been made to ensure the historical and symbolical accuracy of the video and the commentary. We anticipate that it will be available in early 2009 on DVD.
The video part of this work is now complete, only the commentary and music remains to be added.
The Ribhu Gita on audio CD
The entire Ribhu Gita chanted in Sanskrit by Sri Lingeswara Rao Gonella. This inestimable work, highly praised by Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi, is now available on one MP3 CD.
