Hearing, chanting, remembering …
Despite being near deaf, with the help of a good friend, I’ve made an initial foray into the world of audio restoration, and why not? I’m not doing anything else, these days. I’m just hoping I don’t end up producing something more distorted than the original (and therefore more difficult to hear).
Here are a few mp3 classes regarding bhakti yoga. These classes were recorded during the 20th century, mostly on very sub-standard recording equipment and in a noisy environment. Please forgive any distortion or noisy aberrations. I have made no attempt to remove traffic sounds from the Bhubaneswar classes since I believe that they add an atmosphere that most devotees might like to remember.
Some of these early uploads may not have had any audio restoration applied – this may well be a good thing. When I get properly organised, I can keep notes on each file. Right now, everything needs doing today. Some file names might look odd; I’ll change this later, but for they moment they help me to keep track of any processes applied.
Today is Srila Gour Govinda Swami Gurudeva’s appearance day, Friday 2 September in Australia. I humbly offer this website at his holy lotus feet, begging that he will kindly accept my imperfect service.
I pray that any devotees with whom I share access to these files will be pleased by my efforts and find the nectar of these unique classes to be relishable. More classes will be added as they become ready. Thank you.
NB: The above image arrived in my inbox today courtesy of Srila Gour Govinda Swami Quote of the Day. I hope it pleases them that I have utilised it here.
Today, 14 Sept 2016, is Śrī Vāmana Dvādaśī ~ Appearance of Lord Vāmanadeva
(NB: Two minuite silent gap from 31 minuites to 33 minuites; maybe the tape was twisted – then more silence from 1hr 11min 45 sec till end. I should fix this end problem. Also track is noisy; I doubt it was edited. Sorry. A few unedited files got uploaded by mistake, we’ll fix them if time becomes available – tkd)
Srila Gurudeva ki jaya!
