Tantra in daily life ( Part 13)

People have talked so much about raga therapy, nobody so far has talked about "sahithya therapy"!
 Just pick out the most beneficial ( to attain cherished goals/dreams and for addressing problems of any nature) stanza or a two from any krithi and improvise musically ( neraval) in first and second speeds.
To enhance beauty, attraction and virtues:- "Koti manmadha roopude sathguna sagara chandrude..." (Charanam of "Satileni...."Poorikalyani, misra chaapu, Ponnaiah Pillai.

To attain grace of Mother, Father, Guru and God:- "Thalli thandri guru deivamu neevani" (Charanam of Valli Nayakane, Shanmukhapriya, Adi, Muthaiah Bhagavathar).
To get rid of undesirable and bad company:- "Hiranmayeem Lakshmeem sada bhajami, heena maanavaashrayam thyajami..."(Pallavi of Hiranmayeem Lakshmeem, Lalitha, Rupakam, Muthuswami Dikshithar).
To achieve a goal:-"Saadhinchane O Manasa..." (Pallavi of Saadhinchane O Manasa, Pancharathnam in Arabhi, Adi, Thyagaraja Swami).

Gayathri ji,

Your blog has inspired me to take up my veena after a break. I have realized the value of what I have and am practicing from basics.I feel extremely grateful to you for bringing music back into my life.

I feel rewarded that you felt inspired enough to take up this divine instrument after a break. To me this is better than teaching/coaching...

I feel so honored to receive a reply from you. You are an embodiment of all good things. I seek your blessings, for my veena sadhana. Please bless me so that my veena stays with me and the music grows in my life.
