This request is usually not entertained since it is the responsibility of the purchaser to backup all downloaded lessons. It is very difficult to address individual requests such as these which involve considerable time and effort on our part.

Links are valid for a limited time period usually for a  week after which they expire. Its better to download all lessons within that time frame.

Heres a little perspective of our views on pricing of Acharyanet lessons and why we have not included the duration of lessons as a principle.

Lessons on Acharyanet like taught by legends like Tanjavur Shankara Iyer, R K Shrikanthan, Guru P S Narayanaswami, Chitravina Ravikiran and others are not measurable in time. Students are getting these invaluable lessons at anywhere between 50-200{b7955c42bc39fdf9760428d618341adac19cedc90c8f7d5e6434e3113a88252a} less than what they may have to spend even if top geniuses and legends agreed to teach them live.

Acharyanet is pricing all these so nominally since it is doing this project as pure selfless service to the art and culture. These friendly prices barely cover the enormous production and maintenance costs and are only possible because of the goodwill of top artists, tireless effort and passion of the Acharyanet Team and donations of well wishers and patrons.

As a matter of principle these priceless lessons will not be measured in Minutes and Megabytes as Acharyanet aims to rid the recent but unhealthy trend (among a small section of people) to equate price with quantity in time while the majority of passionate aspirants perceive and appreciate the immeasurable values of excellence, experience, educational impact that legends impart even in a matter of minutes.

Please email for all TaalAcharya related technical questions. Acharyanet will handle only payment related queries.
