Film screening of Buddhism - A living Religion in the North east of India

Director: Bappa Ray
Duration: 60 mts

From the 7th century, Buddhism underwent radical changes, and new forms appeared which were called Mahayana and Vajrayana or Tantra. The discipline combines yoga practice with highly complex ritualism, mixed with magic, and involves the worship of a large number of divinities, Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. Mahayana Buddhism, both as a religion and a way of life has influenced the outlook of diverse communities in the Himalayan region. From Ladakh and Himachal in the west to Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim in the east, in small villages scattered throughout the areas bordering Tibet, are communities who have adopted the Buddhist way of life. The film looks at the influence of Buddhism – a Living Religion, on the socio-cultural heritage, dances, festivals, arts and craft of Buddhist communities in the North Eastern region of India, especially Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim.

Lecture Demonstration and Performance of Perini - Dance

IGNCA SRC in association with Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, is organizing a Lecture Demonstration and Performance of Perini – Dance form of Andhra Pradesh byShri. Kalakrishan and accompanist

Perini is a form of Indian dance which was lost in timeline and which was recreated and re-established in 20th century by Padmasri Dr. Nataraja Ramakrishna. Perini Shiva Tandavam is the stimulator to activate the dormant dynamism in human. Perini is the slang form of the word ‘prerana’ which means stimulation. It is said to be the only form of scientifically composed male warrior dance and a form of traditional Indian dance with tala, gati, yati vinyasa. While performing and viewing this dance we experience a state where the panchabhutas are slowly mingling into the Shiva Tattva.The Perini dancer is possessed with an energy and that can be proved incessantly where the sound ‘tam’ from the mridangam resembles the ‘aum’. To prove this Dr. Nataraja Ramakrishna used Dhrupada Mridanga Baani. The sound produced in the solar plexus region extends to rest of the body and stimulates them.To perform this art it requires the perfect co-ordination of mind, body and soul. It is a kind of ritual also where one can offer prayers to Lord Shiva and it is said to activate the kundalini. Dr. Sudha Murthy, Chairperson of the Infosys Foundation inaugurated the performance and on the spot made a generous donation to all the artists and urged them to keep this rare tradition alive.

International Conference on MARC Aurel Stein with special reference to South and Central Asian Legacy: Recent Discoveries and Research

This Conference aims to focus on the life and legacy of Aurel Stein who like, Xuanzang- the traveller and scholar travelled through the inhospitable Silk Road, encircling the Taklamakan Desert, and unearthed a great civilization which remained hidden in the sand dunes for centuries.

Stein was the first among Europeans to understand the ethos of Kashmir’s culture. This great savant explored the inner essence and beauty of Sanskrit literature especially the Rajatarangini of Kalhana. Stein proved his utmost dedication and devotion by editing and translating Kalhana’s chronicle and made his debut as a historical topographer.

Stein was not the first westerner to reach Dunhuang, China but he was the first to reach the sealed library (library 17 of Dunhuang Caves, Gansu, NW of China) and to acquire a large part of its contents from this library.

Stein was a meticulous record-keeper and took notebooks and field diaries to record all aspects of his expeditions. And his record keeping has been invaluable for the study of the sites he explored and the excavated artefacts.

This Conference will provide opportunity for scholars and students to know about this great personality who devoted his life in understanding the great civilization i.e. India, Central Asia and China.

IGNCA is organizing Exhibition Aurel Stein: Fascinated by the Orient-life and work of Sir Aurel Stein in collaboration with The Library and Information Centre of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, and also in collaboration with Hungarian cultural information centre, Delhi. Dr. Agnesh from Budabest has curated this exhibition. Dr. Rita Jeney from Hungary is also participating in the conference.

Images of India - a Fascinating Journey through Time

The Curated Exhibition Images of India-a fascinating journey through time showcases the illustrated sketches, drawings, lithographs, etchings, wood-cut etc. of 18th 19th century rare books from the IGNCA archives which throw ample light on the art, architecture and various aspects of Indian culture and the contents provide information about the past which has got faded and distorted due to various reasons. The first-hand accounts of foreigners visiting India are undoubtedly valuable for the inquisitive scholars in the field of art and culture. The travel literature spans all fields of interest. While in the earlier travel accounts of the Europeans there is precedent of commercial and colonial interest which later on shifts to publication of recreational travel literature of the late 18th and 19th centuries. The contributors of the 18th 19th century European publications were members of British army and navy; surveyors, engineers, medical staff, travelers etc. Driven by the curiosity and being fascinated by what they saw in India – the lands and the diverse inhabitants, customs, as also beliefs prevalent amongst the people, the European travelers made their way to the most interior and the remotest parts to have an understanding of the regions. Much of what they wrote was intended for amusement to their readers, as well as for information and instruction. The exhibition give glimpses of old landscapes of the important cities; architecture of temples, mosques, tombs and living quarters; social life during the period and details of musical instruments, costumes, transportation and other objects of interest. The exhibition intends to make the scholars aware about the great variety of books on Indian art, architecture, culture, religion of the 19th and 20th century. The rich intellectual content and the matching illustrations of the books reveal to the readers of the state of the society when the country was passing through a transition phase, as a result of cross cultural currents, experiencing new influences from the west, adapting to new conditions and at the same time retaining the age old values, tradition and customs.

Film Circle screening of Mudiyettu and Kalamezhuthum Pattum

Director: N. Radhakrishnan

Mudiyettu is one of the richest ritualistic traditions of Kerala. Since the hoary past, people performed Mudiyettu as a celebration of winning over the evil with mythological story line. Ritualistically, sacred space is created by the ancient drawings of Kalamrtyam, an image of a deity, symbolizing creation itself. The songs, ritualistic performance, and the effacing of the drawings have been documented in this film
