Harikatha Mahabharatham Vol 1

An exhaustive and scholarly discourse on "Mahabharatham " by Sri T. S. Balakrishna Sastrigal,

The depth of his profound knowledge, his spontaneity, his powerful and emotional delivery and his magnificent deep voice leaves the listeners awestruck, many times moving them to tears. The mission of this great legend was to spread devotion and instil moral values ingrained in such epics, which he accomplished effortlessly among his listeners. The beauty with which he etches every character in this epic, his reverberating music and his command over the scriptures are matchless. The testimony for this are the two coveted titles conferred on him "Bharat Kesari" by Maha Periyavar of Kanchi Shri Chandrasekarendra Saraswathi Swamigal and "BalaVyasa" by Maha Sannidhanam of Sringeri Shri Vidya Theertha Swamigal among the other many titles showered on him. His extraordinary feat is that he has given more than 100 discourses on " Mahabharathnam " alone, and this album is one such live performance done over a period of 15 days.
