Preface

 

This is the Concluding volume in the series of books planned for the; exposition of the Theory of South Indian Music in all its comprehensive aspects. South Indian music can stand on a par with western music in having an intelligent and well-developed system of musicology and which can be studied at the highest levels. Some of the topics dealt with in this book appeared originally as articles contributed by the author to various journals. They have since been amplified and re- written in the light of subsequent researches and presented here.

 

Matter treated of in Chapters V (Indian music and Western Music - some parallels) and Chapter XIV (Music in Europe and other countries) are more of interest from the point of view of Comparative music.

 

Twenty pallavis inclusive of well known pallavis and scholarly pallavis art: given with notation in Chapter XIX. This along with the fifty pallavis given in South Indian music: Book IV brings the total number of pallavis given in notation in this Series to 70. Lakshanas of 28 ragas are given in Chapter XVIII and in Appendix II. This brings the total number of ragas described in the several books of the Author to 134.

Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
