About the CD

Kashmir that blossomed out of the legendary primeval lake Satiar is still a land replete with water bodies-lakes, rivers, streams, springs etc. No exaggeration, if it is called a ‘water civilization’. The community that is directly involved in vocations connected with water bodies is called Heenz. They have typical ethnic characteristics and call themselves the descendants of prophet Noah. Within this community, there are divisions, based on their typical vocations i) Denb-Heenz-grow vegetables and sell these ii) Geer-Hanz collect water chestnuts, iii) Gaadi – Henz – are the fishermen, who catch fish and trade in these iv) Mata-Heenz – deal in timber, v) Kar-naav Henz-grow a special type of willow and use it for making baskets etc.

Not unexpectedly, Kashmiris have excelled in the craft of making boats – made from pine wood – generally Deodar. There are different types of boats i) Doonga – a dwelling place, complete in every respect ii) Bahasth – flat bottomed large boat used for carrying heavy loads like timber ii) Shikara – the comfortable boat used for going across the river or making a round of the lake. Iv) Khoch – roofless boat used for carrying vegetables and flowers. V) Dembi-naav – small boat used for traveling in swamps. And vi) the famous House of Kashmir culture, as it presents a slice of Kashmir culture with its carvings, Khatumband roof, walnut furniture, papier machine goods.

Testimonials
I've been happy with prior purchases from this site!
Priya, USA
Thank you. You are providing an excellent and unique service.
Thiru, UK
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.
