Description
About the Book

Koodiyattam is very ancient theatre style. Actors speak in Sanskrit using extensive facial expression and body language. It involves multiple performers, the number being dependent on the story. Variety in make-up and costume, use of curtain for characters-entry, use of burning torches, the voice modulations of the actors to depict different emotions the resonating sound of the accompanying instruments – all this put together makes Koddiyattam a colourful and engrossing experience.

Nangiar Koothu is a solo style performed exclusively by women. It is a graceful style with extensive use of face and hands.

Humour and spontaneity – these are the key aspects of Chakyar Koothu. This is essentially a story telling technique of traditional tales from Mahabharata, Ramayana etc, with very expressive body language.

This book discusses Koddiyattam in detail and also the two other forms, nangiar Koothu and Chakyar Koothu which are closely related to Koodiyattam.

Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
