#23-Analysis of Sankarabharanam Ata Tala Varnam

Sankarabharanam is one of the five grand ragas in the Carnatic System of Music, the other four being Todi, Bhairavi, Kalyani and Kamboji. The raga with its grandeur and majesticity reminds Lord Dakshinamurthy in deep penance. The raga evokes both Sringara and Bhakthi Rasa. The quality of calmness is brought out by the Jeeva Swaram Gandharam, which is very much still as a rock without any oscillation as the Lord in Penance. It is the ROYAL RAGA among the ragas of Carnatic Music commanding great respect ! It has been rightly referred to as ‘Raga Rajasya Melakaha’ in the Chaturdandiprakasika by Venkatamakhi.

#22-Analysis of Kalyani Ata Tala Varnam

Kalyani Ata tala Varnam, Vanajakshi, has a majestic gait in itself and as such the Raga Kalyani is the most graceful raga. Any serious student of Carnatic Music should learn this Ata Tala Varnam knowing all its beauty as it brings out the swaroopa of this raga in all its colour and dimensions. The varnam stands out distinctly for its ability to showcase the contour of the raga, its typical gamakas, the pauses, its gait and gamut. The beauty of this raga is further enhanced making it more colourful with the several instances of Panchama Varja Prayogas in this varnam.

#34-The Benefits of Singing – Harmonizing with the Universe

The act of singing is one of the easiest ways of raising the vibration of your body as you harmonize with the universe.

Singing is an act of vibration. It takes music from the realm of the unformed– whether that is in your mind or from that magical space of inspiration–and moves it from within to without.  From the first breath singing moves the energy in a circular way inside your body. As the breath fills your lungs, it brushes against the second and third chakras—the centers of creation and honoring self and others. Instead of merely exhaling, pushing the air past the fourth and fifth chakras where heart chakra and the center of will and intention reside, singing engages both the heart and mind.
