Information for the above page and the CDs were provided by Sri K.
Sundararaman (who is a member of our list).  He gave me a sample from
parasurama kalpa sUtra lectures to me first and I was simply amazed at the
depth of Sri Sastrigal's scholarship  listening to these lectures (they are
not available for distribution yet).  Sri Sastrigal's lectures of Sri lalitA
sahasranAma was one of the sources and inspiration for the huge 1000 page
tamil translation of bhAskararAya bhAsya brought out Jnana Bhaskara Sangam
(see http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ambaa-l/message/6227, The Hindu also
wrote a detailed review of this book  but I do not have the link).
