Some Veda Mantra, Veda Sukta, and shloka audio files

The following Audio files collection provides a direct link to Shri Satish Uppathil's website, where he has hosted more than 20GB worth Shloka, suktas, mantra, talks and other resources relating to Hindu Dharma. Shri Satish graciously and promptly agreed to my request for providing a link to his website from our website. He said in his e-mail :
"I am heartened to see that the website I have hosted could be of use to you. My intention in hosting the website is to be a distributor of contents from IISH* - anyone interested could download, stream or link from from other site. So the answer is, YES you can provide direct link. Do whatever best suits your interest and resource."

In this age of Intellectual property protection, Shri Satish is carrying on the age old, but ever new Dharmic tradition of FREE sharing of knowledge to all seekers. I urge you to visit his website. You can visit with the confidence that the site is "copy-lefted" and "Ad-free"

Stotra Ratna Mala
Translations of Selected Stotras into English
Stotra Ratna Mala is the result of a stupendous effort by Prof. Rama Chander, who has graciously allowed us to benefit from his work. Here's what Prof Rama Chander said in his e-mail :
"My name is Ramachander, originally from Kerala and am a resident of Bangalore. One of my aims in life is to bring the majesty of Sanatana Dharma to our youth. In this connection, I have translated into English, the following Sthothras from Sanskrit, Tamil and Malayalam. All this are put together in a CD and I would like to give this CD to any organisation like yours interested in the propagation of Dharma so that every devotee can benefit. Except for an acknowledgement, I do not expect anything."

More of Prof Chander's work can be found at his website.

When they do the surya namaskar, they recite some additional slokas - sheekshavalli, narayana valli in addition to Suryanamaskar & navagraha slokas.
I would like to know of all the slokas/manthras which are to be recited to do a full/complete suryanamaskaram is available anywhere for downloading? Will a Tamil copy be available?
Thanks -
