After Visiting Kanchipuram Temple during January this year, I was completely hypnotized seeing Goddess Kamakshi dressed up as Goddess Saraswathi with a Veena on her hands. It was as though SHE was sitting there live playing the Divine Instrument with a very beautiful smile on her face..
Shanmukhapriya School of Music was established in the month of Oct, 1996 in a very small scale and as of now, has completed 21 long years of musical training for dedicated and passionate students of Carnatic Music. The institution imparts professional training in Carnatic Vocal and Veena from Beginners to advanced Level with the aim of providing a platform for musically inclined minds to nurture their talents . There are a handful of dedicated students learning Carnatic Vocal Music, Veena Instrumental, Ashtapadi along with traditional Slokas and Bhajans.

As a family man you have the responsibility to provide for the family and see their well being. That is your Dharma. Dharmo Rakshathi Rakshitaha, is the saying.
This post is a continuation of my previous post The Origin of Music – Sangeethothpaththi – Part1

शङ्करं पार्वति नत्वा द्रुष्टवाचेदं वचो ब्रवीत
संगीता शास्त्रम् हे नाथ ! मह्यं वद सुखप्रदम् ||
shankaram pārvathi nathwaa drushtwaachedam vacho braveeth
sangeetha sāsthram he naadha ! mahyam vada sukhapradam ||
Once Pārvathi bowed respectfully to Lord Parameswara and asked. “Oh Lord! Could you please explain about the science and origin of music that gives transcendent bliss to all the creatures in this Universe ? ”.
Lord said to his consort. Hey ! Pārvathi. Please listen carefully. I created the Panchabhoothās and the Saptaswarās that form the base of Sangeetha Sāsthra from my 5 faces.
Was privileged to be invited for a concert, for the International Medical Conference that’s happening at Crowne Plaza. We had an elite and very receptive audience who were Doctors from all parts of the world belonging to various Departments like Neuro, Oncology etc. Happy to say that I was given an opportunity to give the details of therapeutic effects of ragas in Carnatic Music System to a TEAM OF MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS . This theme was well received by the doctors who gave us a standing ovation after the concert . The doctors came up for a discussion about the effect of ragas after the concert was over.
