Overview: Pattanaik. Seven Secrets from Hindu Calendar Art.


Title: Seven Secrets from Hindu Calendar Art
Author: Devdutt Pattanaik
Year: 2009

Free Online: You can watch the videos for free at YouTube.

Length: three weeks. I've divided the videos into six parts: A - B (one week), then C - D (second week), and E - F (third week). You can also use these as an "extra reading" option, in which case you could spread it out over six weeks of the course:

Part A - Ganesha
Part B - Narayan
Part C - Ardhanari, Shiva
Part D - Shiva, Devi
Part E - Vishnu
Part F - Brahma

Reading Guides. I've also written up quotations from the video for you to use as a reference (I have a print copy of the book), so you do not have to do any summarizing in your notes. As always, focus on your favorite details and favorite moments in the videos. This is sometimes complicated material, and it is probably going to be new to you, so you might need to listen to the video twice before you write up your notes. For the first listen, just go with the flow and don't write anything down, and then as you listen to the video the second time, take some notes to put in your blog post.
