Acoustic/Non-acoustic pickups

VEENA SASHANK MALLYA

Sashank Mallya, a graded Veena artist from All India Radio, Chennai is a bright star in the field of Veena. Having had his earliest training from age 6 under his Veena Vidushi mother, Smt. NVS Radha and later on from under Veena Vidwan GRS Murthy and Veena Vidushi Smt. Revathi Srinivasan, Sashank adapts the gayaki style (vocal style) of playing the Veena.
Talented and aesthetic in his musicianship and technique, he is a noted Vainika who has performed in prestigious festivals and organizations. He is winner of a gold medal from an esteemed sabha in Guntur AP, an endowment award from a leading sabha in Chennai and recipient of Central Government Junior Scholarship (2010-2015) and CCRT scholarship to young artists in 2019.
Sashank is also pursuing Audio Engineering under Sri Baba Prasad, who is the only waves certified instructor in India at Digi Sound Studio. 
 As a Veena artist and an audio engineer in the making, Sashank is perhaps the most authentic source in the field of Veena for information about Veena pickups. In the above video he has demonstrated the usage of various mikes, including acoustic and non-acoustic mikes. The intent of my many articles in showcasing the difference between acoustic and electric Veenas and how an acoustic Veena is reduced to a non-acoustic instrument by using a non-acoustic mike is clearly demonstrated here.
P.S- I vote for Schaller Oyster!

SRIVIDYA VEENA (5)-KUNDALINI YOGA (SARASWATI VEENA-25)

 GODDESS KALI INDICATING THE TREASURE BEHIND UVUULA


THE UNITY OF THE TIP OF THE TONGUE WITH THE UVULA (LITTLE TONGUE) IS SYMBOLIC OF LOW ENERGY UNITING WITH SUPER CONSCIOUSNESS. THIS IS THE UNION WHICH PRODUCES THE AMRUTHAM (NECTAR).

The Inner Veena (Human Spinal chord)- I realized that the mantropadesham (initiation in mantra) I had received from the Shankaracharya of Shakatapuram Mutt and the Khechari Mudra upadesham from an unknown yogi in Tiruvannamalai were meant for the activation of the 'vina' of Upanishads (veena dandi which is equal to the human spinal chord).

The Veena Syamala mantra as well as the khechari mudra tap the kundalini energy raising it upwards from the muladhara to the sahasrara chakra through the sushumna nadi. Veena, when played with involvement gradually slows down the inhalation and exhalation of the player. As the breathing slows down even further, the sushumna nadi (between the ida and pingala nadis) is activated. Khechari mudra, which is a hatha yoga practice activates and elevates the kundalini shakthi. Khechari mudra's main objective is for the tip of the tongue to touch the uvula (little tongue) or even further behind into the nasal cavity. By achieving this,  one is able to direct the pranic energy from senses into the spinal chord and from there draw it upwards through the chakras towards the ultimate bliss of Universal Consciousness.

In one of my innumerable meetings with Sri.Sivananda Murthy of Bhimli, he told me there was another method to activate the uvula centre. He showed me the image of Goddess Kali. He said practice of putting out the tongue as further down as possible, and vocally hitting the lowest octaves (never mind the guttural sounds) and by sustaining the notes for long periods one can open the storehouse of Universal Knowledge which is locked right behind the uvula!!

"O Goddess Tripurasundari, residing in the woods of Kadamba trees and holding a golden Veena, who is adorned with beautiful jewelry studded with precious gems and whose face shines with ambrosia!
The compassionate Goddess who bestows abundance, the One with large eyes and whose sight is all encompassing, pervading the Universe and the Divine Consort of the three-eyed One, I seek refuge in Thee."

SRIVIDYA VEENA (4)-KUNDALINI YOGA (SARASWATI VEENA-24)

SRI RAMANASHRAM, TIRUVANNAMALAI

Usually, my frequent trips to Ramanashram, Tiruvannamalai are meant for soaking in the sheer peace, tranquility and vibrations of Sri Ramana Maharshi's presence. I got the same feeling of bliss in Himalayas, when I went there for A.R.Rahman's 'Jana Gana Mana..' in 1999. Prayers, mantras, slokas and meditation are not necessary in charged places such as these. An inexplicable bliss of inner silence and stillness fills our hearts in such places. I just sit down, do nothing...stare into space...nothing matters as GOD is felt through every moment...all around and within oneself.
I sat leaning against the wall in Ramanashram (almost 2 decades ago) and stared idly at an unkempt man seated right opposite to me in the men's section. He wore a soiled veshti, his long beard and hair were matted. I would have shifted my gaze if I didn't catch him smiling at me. Puzzled, I looked around wondering if the smile was directed at me or at somebody else.
I realised that he was smiling only at me and I smiled back. He immediately got up and walked steadily towards me. I thought he was going to ask me for money or assistance. 
(Conversation in tamil)
There was a wealth of wisdom in his eyes as he addressed me, "You were the one who played Veena here last night, isn't it?"
"Yes" I smiled.
He declared with a smile, "I normally don't come down here often. You are fortunate that I came in time to listen to you and that I am talking to you right now." There was an air of authority about him which was in sharp contrast to his dishevelled appearance.
"Oh"! I wondered who he could be.
He sat right in front of me. In close quarters it appeared as though he did not bathe for many days.
"Do you know Khechari Mudra?"
His question caught me unawares. I was stunned, not expecting him to ask me something like that.
"What is it? I don't know." 
He opened his mouth wide to show me the khechari mudra. 
"Do it."
He said in a commanding voice.
Embarrassed I looked around.
He urged, "You need to do it for your Veena playing. Very very important."
He got my complete attention. 
My eyes widened in fascination, "Why...how?" I asked
"If you do it while playing Veena, your kundalini will lead you to a higher state of consciousness."
"Really??!!"
"Do it."
Forgetting my surroundings I did the khechari mudra. 
"No...like this.."
He did the mudra along with me for a few seconds after ensuring I did it the correct way.
He got up abruptly and started to leave. Even I got up hastily to follow him. 
I addressed him anxiously, "Where do you stay? I want to meet you again. I need to know a few things about Veena and yoga."
"I live somewhere up the hills, I don't stay in any particular place. You can't meet me. You carry on with what I told you. That's enough."
"No...please I want to see you again,  just one more time." I pleaded, feeling like a kid.
Looking straight he kept walking ahead, "No child.. please go on...Keep doing what I showed you. I have to leave."
I stopped in my tracks, a feeling of sadness washing over me as I watched his retreating figure helplessly.....
