Description

Sankirtan Samrat Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj is a Kevala-Adwaita Vedantin. He recognizes Music as Yoga, as an approach to the Absolute. He has used it as a life-transforming vehicle of his divine thoughts and composed many songs, pregnant and vibrant with his Upadesha.

Anything Indian is spiritual; and music is specially so. Our music is intended to enable the mind melt in the melody; and since the Swaras have their own vibratory chords in the inner psychic centers-Chakras in the Sushumna, this Mano-laya at once releases the latent spiritual power and leads to blissful Samadhi. So we have an illustrious galaxy of saints as the foremost artists: Thyagaraja, Dikshitar, Shyama Sastrigal, Purandaradasa, Mira Bai, etc.

This volume would enable the public and musicians to view music in the proper light as an Anga of Sankirtana Yoga, as an aid to the purification of the heart and as a Sadhana that leads to Bhava-Samadhi, and while keeping it unpolluted by vulgarity and vocal gymnastics, will endeavor to apply themselves to music with devotion and faith.
