Vairagya Shatakam by Bharthrhari ( - ) . Translated by Swami Madhavananda (1888 - 1965).

This project is complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page:
http://librivox.org/vairagya-shatakam-by-bhartrhari/


Volunteers outside the USA: Swami Madhavananda died in 1965. The author's work is still protected by copyright in places, like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years, Australia (author's death plus 70 years for authors who died after 1955) or Canada (author's death plus 50 years).
Vairagya Shatakam is one of the best books that gives the true picture of Renunciation. The book talks on how a common man gets lured by the endless desires which when satisfied fetches him nothing but the desires again. It concludes saying how these unsatiable desires mislead the man from knowing his real nature-omnipotence, omnipresence and omniscience! (Summary by Uday Sagar)

I'll MC this, Uday. I will have your MW ready tomorrow (my time).

I have made two small changes to your template. I changed the text link to the main Archive page for the book so listeners will be able to choose the format they prefer, and I have added the author's name to the suggested file name.

Let me know if you need anything!

Your MW is ready, Uday! If you would rather the preface have the number 0 instead of 1, let me know and I will change it.

Ah, you had 10 rows specified in the template -- would you like 11, then? It is a little confusing in the template sometimes. What I have to enter in the database is how many total rows and then the number to give the first row (0 or 1). Would you like your preface to be 0 or 1? It probably doesn't matter that much with this book, since there aren't numbered chapters. The numbers will need to included in your titles too.

Unfortunately I can only add rows at the bottom of the MW, so you will have to move all your titles down one row after you enter the preface.

Yes, And i ticked the check box for separate Preface. I thought this would add preface besides these 10 rows. :)

However, Can you add one more row? Thanks.

That is the confusing part! Normally 10 sections with a preface means 10 total: preface plus 9 others. But it can be read the other way too. The template is being redesigned along with the website back-end, so this is a good reminder that we will need to make sure that the wording is clear in the new version.

I have added another section to the MW. I left the numbers beginning with 1, but if you would prefer to have your preface numbered 0 just let me know and I will change it.

Moving to Going Solo now! I'll advertise for a PL'er once you have a section or two ready for listening (unless you prefer to post the ad yourself).

Done. Changing the starting number to 0 moved all the titles down a line, so I copy/pasted them back to where they belong, adding the leading numbers while I was at it (in case you wonder where those came from). Please double check at some point to make sure they are all as they should be.

Have fun recording!

Hi Laurie,

I am done with the Preface, http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/law/vairagyashatakam_00_Preface.mp3 playing for 6 mins 13 secs.

I request you to post ad for PLing.
Thanks.

Great! I've posted the LW ad here:
viewtopic.php?f=21&t=41939

I wrote that it is not necessary to understand Sanskrit because I don't believe we have many volunteers who do; but if you think it would be better for the PL'er be able to follow the Sanskrit, I will remove that line.

Please include the file duration in the MW. If you will go ahead and mark that section Complete, that will tell the PL'er that it is ready for listening.

Laurie,

The line is okay as we have few sanskrit text. We can read this too from http://www.scribd.com/doc/13153963/Vairagya-Satakam-of-Bharthari- which provides the exact english pronunciation of the sanskrit verses. :)

What do you say?

Hi, Uday, I think my writing "English/Sanskrit" in the title of the Listeners post must have scared people away. :) I have PL'd the preface. Your reading is excellent, only a few notes:

1 - Volume is a bit low at 83.8 dB; can you amplify a bit? Also please turn up your input volume a little for the next section (easier than amplifying after the fact).

2 - Intro states "Chapter 1," which could be confusing to listeners since the file is labeled 00 and the next one will be 01. Please re-record the intro to state "Preface of..." instead. (You don't have to say "0" as long as you say Preface.)

3 - Needs "End of Preface" statement at the end.

The rest is PL very OK!

That other text source is an interesting find! We can't use it in the catalog because it is marked "CC - noncommercial" (not the same as public domain), but it might help PL'ers follow along with the Sanskrit. I read along with it for part of the preface and found a couple of text differences from the Archive version (very minor, just a couple of words that were omitted) -- but it would be fine to help people with the Sanskrit if they want it. I have to say, though, that I can't follow the phonetic pronunciation of the Sanskrit very well anyway... I am just as happy to let your Sanskrit wash over me and enjoy the sound while listening for repeats, dropped microphone, etc. :)

Hi Laurie,

Thanks that you are PLing this book! I will take utmost care in minimizing the mistakes with sanskrit. :-)
Yes, as you said, that link can be used only to get the english pronunciation of sanskrit verses.

Preface is uploaded with the above said modifications.
