The Music of India
The Music of India
Description
About the Book:

Indian Music possesses so much value for the life of the people of India that it aught to be known and understood by every man and woman who has India's good at heart, so that it may become cultivated in every city and village throughout the land. The music of India embodies new ideas of harmony and melody - finer notes, intricate and subtle variations which exemplify the beauty of "Ragas" of Indian music. Spiritual communication through music, enchanting life through music, soothing nerves and creating harmony and poise in every day life through music, depicting deepest emotions of life are a few phases of Indian music, the divine art.

The purpose of the book, then, is to provide sufficient information to make insight possible; so that the educated Indian and also the European may be stirred up to such a living interest in Indian music, both vocal and instrumental.

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
