Sacred Songs of India - Vol. VI
Description
From the Jacket:

THE SACRED SONGS OF INDIA VOLUME SIX, like its five predecessor volumes, encompasses selections from the lifework of ten mystic poet-saints of India.

The mystic poet-sages included in this volume lived between 13th century B. C. and 19th century A. D. and came from diverse regions of india.

They are: Veda Vyasa, the epic poet of India who authored the epics Mahabharata and Bhagavata,  Appar (also known as Tirunavukkarasar, one of the quartet of great Saivite saints, Tirumangai Azhwar, one of the more important Vaisnavite saints, Sankaracharya, the great philosopher saints, who propounded Advaita or Non-dualism, Allama Prabhu, the undisputed leader of the Veerasaivite movement, Guru Amar Das, the third Sikh Guru, Ras Khan, the Muslim mystic who revelled in the exploits of Lord Krishna, Shaji Maharaja, the short-lived ruler of Thanjavur who composed melodious devotional songs in mellifluous Sanskrit, Oottukkhadu Venkata Subba Iyer, the celibate devotee of Lord Krishna and Iriymman Tampi, a member of the royal family of Travancore, one of whose songs is sung in almost every household in Kerala.

They sang in different languages: Sanskrit, Tamil, Kannada, Punjabi, Hindi, and Malayalam. But all of them sang of the glory of God, out of their intense personal spiritual experience.

 THE SACRED SONGS OF INDIA VOLUME SIX, like its predecessor volumes, will be a limitless repertoire for all artists in music, drama and ballet.

Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times.
