Teaming with western music and Hindusthani music played outstandingly by Ustad Shahid Parvez on sitar and Sri. Vijay Ghate on tabla, Nidhichaala Sukhama is presented in the form of modern art on the canvas of Carnatic music.

The krithis Mahaganapathim in Natta and Himagirithanaye in Suddhadhanyasi projected in an abstract form by combining Hindusthani and Western music.
Recorded in late 90s, this recording was absolutely engrossing and inspiring. I cherish the memory of teaming with experts like Shahidji, Vijay Ghateji and Sri. R.Ramesh.

Moon transits from Gemini to Cancer on June 30th at 6.23 PM. Moon remains in Cancer from June 30th evening to July 3rd at 6.30 AM.

The planetary configuration while Moon is in Cancer is extraordinary with 6 planets occupying their own houses. Saturn in Aquarius, Jupiter in Pisces, Mars in Aries, Venus in Taurus, Mercury in Gemini (according to sidereal zodiac) and Moon in Cancer.

Worship of Gods and planets will yield special results.

Real World

                                       REAL WORLD

Want to escape to some hill resort?! Find yourself instantly in a hill resort by keeping off from the MOBile and from getting trapped in interNET. Deactivate whatSAPp which saps pranic energy. Come out of the traffic. Enjoy the serenity and silence away from meaningless forwards, greetings and worse still- wasteful conversations that deepen into controversies...misunderstandings... heart aches.... Choose to look at the real world which is in and around oneself. The amazing gift of God is in and around us. For human beings in 'kaliyuga' addiction to interNET is an added test to the list of attachments to material relations.

Using interNET for anything else other than work, that too for long hours stunts the pranic flow of energy. Derive natural energy from within and surroundings. Nurture the pranic energy to carry forward to an ideal afterlife........

Music and Mind

SOUL-STIRRING VIRUTTAM (TIRUPPUGAZH) BY MY GURU, SRI.T.M.THYAGARAJAN.

Manodharma sangeetham is the spontaneous musical creation of a musician. Manodharma sangeetham is also about bhava-laden rendition of the divine compositions left behind by great yesteryear composers.

Carnatic music is essentially a medium that projects Hindu religion and spirituality through a musical format. The celebrated composer trio Saint Thyagaraja, Sri Mutthuswami Dikshithar and Sri Syamasastri have not only attained moksha through their own compositions, they have also left behind gems of their works for artistes and listeners for the purpose of soul-elevation. Therefore an ideal manodharma springs from a devotion-filled mind.

The beauty of carnatic music lies in its multiple dimensions. It is easily one of world's most intellectual subjects which is essentially soul-elevating.

Soulful manodharma that springs out of a devotional mind has the capacity to elevate not only oneself, but also the listener. 

In few instances an experienced performer may pull off a stage performance based on technical grooming. In such cases listeners are in awe of the aritste's larger-than-life-image and charisma acquired through years of fame and success. In these cases staleness of music is accepted with loyalty.

Listeners may be surprised to know that music is all about soul which  has an edge over technical expertise. 

Inconsistency is one of the many characteristics of a natural musician.
