Seven Wings of Wisdom SEVEN FOLD KEY Life on the earth is originated by the solar rays reaching the earth .These solar rays generates 7 types of activity to unfold various layers of creation in 7 fold manner.  This type of 7 fold permeation of solar activity interconnects all the systems of 7 fold nature in creation through a network of systems which is impermeable to the human mind. These  7 fold solar activity functions in human race through the influence of 7 great stars called great bear constellation who shower their blessing and induce their cosmic activity through the seven great seers of wisdom called masters, chohans, rishis, fathers,  progenitors of human races  who had sacrificed their life for the welfare of humanity for  an eons of ages . These 7 great seers stimulate spiritual activity in human race through 7 latent centers in human body called chakras ,in grosser plane 7 glandular pathways which awaken the innate energies in human system using the network which interconnects all the species on earth to the cosmos thus forming one unit of life.   Among one such great lights has given a key in this new age            to unfold the link between human and divine .Disciple of one among such light through Aquarian Principle has introduced a novel method of unlocking secret keys of wisdom through  MIHIRA. Here comes role of MIHIRA in opening the 7 fold path of wisdom to unfold oneself into higher hemispheres of life through the 7 fold activity that are needed to perform in the 7 days of the week which enables one self to  realize the spirit of god embedded in man. Before dealing with various techniques concerning about the application of this solar activity in daily life we need to have brief information about seven rays and their activity which form underlying principle of their working.     The following is the note delivered by The Tibitian Master Djwhal Khul on Esoteric Psychology…………………………,  THE SEVEN RAYS AND THEIR ACTIVTY   Seven great energies or streams of force demonstrate the qualities of Deity. The Wisdom Teachings speak of them as the Seven Rays and they are dominant conditioning and qualifying factors in our lives. But not only this; they are, we understand, cosmic elements, reaching us from the unknown spheres of other systems, and no part of the life of our planet is unaffected by them. In the same way as the seven colours are parts of the spectrum and the seven notes are tones of the octave, so these Rays are differentiations or qualities of the one divine Emanation. In some of the eastern teachings they are called the seven breaths giving life to all forms, and they have been referred to in various ways in different philosophies. It is these great “Energies” that St John called symbolically “the Seven Spirits before the throne of God.” The Seven Rays, each carrying particular qualities and tendencies, are responsible for the different psychological types. Several Rays will probably influence us, but one usually predominates and gives the main colouring to our character. There is a connection here with astrology … the astrological influences carry these same streams of energy and our alignment with particular Signs puts us more directly in touch with these qualities. The following summary only gives a very brief idea of each Ray, but serves to indicate their different types of influence.     First Ray: Will or Power Purpose, positivity and leadership are the outstanding qualities of this Ray. It carries great strength and driving force, in fact it is sometimes called the Destroyer. It is the Ray of the ruler and is particularly related to the field of Government. Those who initiate undertakings and are found in positions of power are especially aligned with this type of energy.   Second Ray: Love-Wisdom This Ray embodies the building and relating qualities and is the blending and inclusive energy that leads to true understanding. Its strength is through persistence and it radiates the spirit of relationship and the attractive quality of Love. On this Ray are found the lovers of Truth and those who seek the path of Wisdom; the Teachers, Healers and Philosophers are the exponents of its magnetic energy.   Third Ray: Active Intelligence This energy carries an underlying impulse towards both mental and physical activity. A clear intellect and an ability to plan are its characteristics and a capacity for abstract thinking and intelligent organising are this Ray’s especial gifts. Its influence works particularly through economics and industry.   Fourth Ray: Harmony through Conflict This is the Ray of beauty, art, and creative expression in all forms. It is the energy which, through conflict, brings order out of confusion, harmony out of discord, unity out of diversity. It finds its expression particularly in the cultural field, but it also has great influence upon humanity as a whole, and brings about the achievement through struggle by which we evolve.   Fifth Ray: Concrete Knowledge and Science This Ray is pre-eminently that of mind, critical ability and research. It is the Ray of the keen and enquiring intellect that demands great accuracy and gives much attention to detail. Within this stream are found those working in all the different branches of science.   Sixth Ray: Devotion and Idealism Dedication and fanatical altruism are the main impulses of this Ray. It carries a militant one-pointedness and intensity, and further characteristics are devotion and a spirit of service. It is the Ray of the crusader and the idealist and is the great force within Religion.   Seventh Ray: Ceremonial Order and Ritual This is the Ray which links spirit and matter and it works through law, organisation andritual. Those under its impulse delight in order and perfection of form. Since it is concerned with the concretising of energy, finance comes within its province, as well as all ceremonial activity.This gives the general picture of the Rays, but they are many-sided and too complex to be fully portrayed in a short summary. It must be added, however, that their energies can work out as detrimental tendencies as well as valuable qualities. For example, First Ray energy may activate the strong, courageous leader, but may equally well stimulate adversely the ambitious, arrogant dictator. Upon our response to these great forces and our handling of them depends how they manifest. There are many interesting relationships and correspondences which can be followed up in connection with the Seven Rays. Their influence is felt in all kingdoms of nature and recognition of their conditioning energies gives us new insight into our fellow humans as well as ourselves. Study of them will be at the roots of New Age psychology, for understanding of the Rays that influence us individually will reveal both the bases of our problems and our lines of potentiality, and will help us to meet the ancient Greek, yet ever current, demand—”Know thyself.” 7 Masters of wisdom seers who preside over these seven activities of the seven rays   First ray                               Master Moriya Second ray                                  Master K.H Third ray                                      Mahachohan, Master Rakoojeee Fourth ray                                   Master Seraphis Fifth ray                                       Master Hilarion Sixth ray                              Master Jesus Seventh ray                         Master Comte de St Germain.   The White Light and its 7 Rays – The Colors: violet – indigo – blue – green – yellow – orange – red White and black are no colors.
White light includes all the colors, and black (the darkness) absorbs them all. The colors are the result of the refraction of the White Light. Each color is the result of the fade out of all the other colors. This process is a partial darken of The Light, a condensation. If all colors are faded out the darkness is completed. The darkness is the beginning process of the creation of solid inanimate matter.

White Light – Colors – Darkness

The colors are components of the White Light and the bridge between the two poles: pure Spirit and inanimate matter.

The White Light represents the divine consciousness and its presence and the colors are the activity of this presence.

The pure solid inanimate matter is the result of totally missing Light. And the colors equalize the contrast between both the divine consciousness and inanimate matter. The colors show and proof the nature and character of every structure, material, thing or being. It is no coincidence that the hemoglobin (blood particle) is red, the earth ground is brown and the chlorophyll is green. The colors tell us about the nature and the function of each existence, and not only for the material world but also for the inner situation of the soul in each being. The color which appears in a human mind is an indicator for his inner situation. It can be a sign for a missing attribute and attitude or an overemphasized attribute and attitude. However, it will be a helper, a guide on the path to reach the goal of perfection. Our moods, behaviors, movements and desires are expressions of our soul guided by Spirit, and will find its expression in specific colors. Even the color combinations in our clothes are nothing else but expressions of our soul.

Only the imagination and view of the White Light would be the sign for inner harmony and completeness, a direct connection to the higher source. The Kaballa is teaching us, that the holy spark in every human is attached to one of these seven rays. Each human belongs to his own ray. This information is from El Moray channeled through the “Bridge of Light”, also each of the week days belongs to one color ray, they are different from the rainbow colors:  This list may not totally agree with the list on the main page as that comes from a different source.

                                                    By m.vanaja During the last seventy or eighty years a section of the public vaguely has heard of mysterious sages with alleged extra- ordinary powers who live somewhere in the, Himalayas.  Those who sought to prove their existence were dismissed either as frauds or cranks or else as persons with highly fertile imagination.  Such an assumption is entirely wrong.   The present is an age of bewildering contrasts and extremes.  Startling scientific discoveries in the realms of matter and  even more startling ones in the realms of mind are occurring simultaneously .  We are, in fact gradually coming to realise that which was kept aside by the rationalists cannot be disposed of in high handed fashion. Supernatural phenomena previously supposed to manifest through some sporadic intervention on the part of the deity were believed to be the result  of natural forces in the hands of those who knew how to wield them or of perceptive faculties  notknown to the mankind in general.  Thus what at one time was emotionally termed a miracle is now more level-headedly categorised as an instant of clairvoyance, clairaudience, hypnotism, mesmerism, magnetic healing, metaphysical healing etc.,  as the case may be.   Man has discovered that such faculty lies latent in human organism.  Unless he has acquired himself those faculties, he is dependent on others for the knowledge of these phenomenon.  The process of developing these has been reduced to an exact science in India known as Raja Yoga.  This science in varying forms has been secretly in existence in every ancient civilisation.   To quote Swami Vivekananda :  “ When the mind has been  trained to remain fixed on a certain internal or external location, there comes to it the power as it were, of flowing in an unbroken current towards that point.  When this power has been so much intensified as to be able to reject theexternal part of perception and remain meditating only on the internal part, the meaning then it acquires knowledge of the finer manifestations of Nature”. This condition is called Samadhi or Super-conscious trance and of what occultists call the higher planes of existence, leading to Nirvana or Liberation.  When a man has reached Nirvana he is not compelled to retain his physical body or to re-incarnate in another.  The choice is open to him either to live a disembodied existence for all eternity or to remain as a Master of Wisdom for a considerable time at any time on the earth.  In the latter case, He holds some office in the Hierarchy and helps in a large variety of ways for the development of humanity.   The Masters are human beings who crossed the human limitations.  They know what is required by man and they know how to inspire him into the required objective work.  They know how to aid man to hasten his own evolution without any violation of the Laws of Creation.  They bridge the gulf that lies between the human kingdom and Deva kingdom on this earth.  They work as guides and scouts to co-operate with nature in her working.  They also work as custodiansof the ageless wisdom of man through deluges and hand it over to posterity.  The activities of these Masters are numerous and varied and have so eloquently delineated by the great chela Dr. Annie Besant  who said, “They (Masters of Wisdom) aid in countless ways, the progress of humanity.  From the highest sphere.  They shed down light and life on all the world, that may be taken up and assimilated as freely as the sunshine, by all who are receptive enough to take it in.  Next, the Masters specially connected with religions use these religions as reservoirs into which They pour spiritual energy, to be distributed to the faithful in each religion through the duly appointed  “ means of grace “ .  Next comes the great intellectual work, wherein the Masters send out thought-forms of high intellectual power to be caught up by men of genius, assimilated by them and given out to the world ; on this level also They send out Their wishes to Their disciples, notifying them of the tasks to which they should set their hands.  Then comes the work in the lower mental world, the generation of the thought-forms which influences the concrete mind and guides it along useful  lines of activity in this world and the teaching of those who are livingin the heavenly world.  Then the large activities of the intermediate world, the helping of the so-called dead, the general direction and supervision of the teaching of the younger pupils and the sending of aid in numerous cases of need.  In the physical world the watching of the tendencies of events, the correction and neutralising, as far as law permits, of evil currents, the constant balancing of the forces that work for and against evolution, the strengthening of the good, the weakening of the evil.” Master E K, close associate of the Hierarchy says, “ the Masters know about the obstacles that stand before a man on the way of his progress; the obstacles for his success and the easy and artistic method of eliminating them.  Their method of elimination is not by excluding some beliefs from us but by rearranging the already existing powers latent in man.  This rearrangement brings out some more powers hidden in man.  They can transform the problems of life into the components of one experience of continuous happiness.” It will be seen from this that  the Masters may have their heads in heaven but their feet are on earth . They are  eminently practical men.             Master Moriya – he is the master who presides over the first ray activities upon the planet. He is the senior understudy and eventual successor to the Lord of Races. Working under the guiding energy of the First Ray of Will and Power, M has a commanding appearance. He is tall and dark, with dark hair and beard, and flashing eyes. There is a close association between the Masters KH and M, and these two friends collaborate in many respects, as Their work with humanity cannot be sharply delineated and a certain amount of overlapping is unavoidable. Luckily, on subjective levels competition and envy are unknown qualities, and there is therefore never any danger of one group encroaching on another’s terrain – they are all co-operating in their efforts to help humanity achieve its final destiny. Being on the First Ray, the Master M is also closely associated with Shamballa, whence the Divine Purpose is projected by the energy of Will and Power. The Master M is the inspirer of the world’s statesmen, and manipulates forces that will foster conditions for the furthering of racial evolution, thus inspiring national leaders with vision and with international ideals for greater tolerance and co-operation amongst nations and races. The initiates and disciples working in this Master’s group are consequently also primarily concerned with the expression of synthesis in government and the political world. The synthesis aimed at is largely of a subjective nature, and will not be negated by outer differences, provided these disparities are characterized by goodwill and sound relations. This co-operative spirit must and will lead to eventual peace and understanding on Earth – a peace in which individual and national cultures will be preserved, although subordinated to the interests of humanity as a whole. As the head and principal organizer of all esoteric schools and organizations in the world, Master Morya is also widely known and has a large number of pupils in both the East and the West. As in the case of KH, rapidly changing world conditions are demanding His constant attention, and with the great pressure of work on His shoulders M has also delegated personal dictation and teachings to younger Masters and senior disciples.

     Related website-  http://www.templeofthepresence.org/morya.htm   Master kithumi k.h  –he is the master who presides over second ray activities upon the planet.  one of the best known names in esoteric circles is probably that of the Master Koot Hoomi, often abbreviated to the initials KH. He is alleged to appear at times in a physical body in a secluded and quiet little village, Shigatse, hidden away in the Himalayan mountains. This village is also the physical retreat for several other Masters temporarily functioning in the human community. KH is described as a tall and noble man, but not heavily built, fair of complexion, with deep blue eyes, pouring out love and wisdom; His hair and beard are a golden brown. He received His initiate training in a Kashmiri body, but also received a sound Western education at a British university. He is controlled by the Love-Wisdom Ray and, as might consequently be expected, is deeply implicated in vitalizing and proclaiming esoteric teachings. Furthermore He has been presented with the task of stimulating the latent factor of love, lying dormant in almost every human heart, and also to awaken the race of men to the consciousness of their fundamental brotherhood, which must eventually lead them to the One Humanity. KH is one of the senior Masters and, with His qualifications of Love and Wisdom, is being trained as the future successor to the World Teacher for, when the sixth root-race becomes established, the Christ will vacate His present office to proceed with even more advanced work on higher planes. Under the circumstances KH works in close association with the Christ, and has also acquired the right to free entry and consultation in the ‘Courts of Shamballa’. Masters of lesser degree are allowed such contact only at stated intervals. One of the special projects on which Master KH is at present engaged, in close collaboration with the Masters Morya and Jesus, is to find a basis for the synthesis of Eastern and Western religious thought, with the objective of eventually developing the One World Religion, which will serve as the common bond for the unification of humanity. Master KH also has the task of reorganizing world education and partly because of this function he is already well known in the West, where His pupils and disciples are spread far and wide. During the past several decades KH has, however, been engrossed to such an extent in broader world problems, watching over the destinies of prominent world figures, and the handling of deeper incentives and purposes, that He no longer has the opportunity of personally dictating teachings to His disciples working in more restricted fields of activity, and on subjects which can be transmitted just as efficiently by initiates of lesser degree. A number of His pupils have consequently been transferred to DK and other Masters for further training. Another special mandate for which KH has assumed responsibility is to collaborate with four other Masters towards initiating the steps needed to prepare humanity for the imminent reappearance of the Christ, and the simultaneous externalization of the Hierarchy.

CASSIOPEIA (Twin ray: Minerva), the Elohim of wisdom.       Website-        Third ray mahachohan  and seventh ray master – master SAINT GERMAIN \        RAKOCZI (R)   \ COMTE DE SAINT GERMAIN The Master R, often lovingly and respectfully referred to as ‘The Count’, is the Lord of Civilization and in command of several groups, through which He is exerting a wide influence in world affairs. In practice He is the executive officer of the Lodge of Masters as far as the work in Europe and America is concerned, where He consummates the Plans devised by the inner executive Council of the Christ. He is consequently also known as the Regent of Europe and America, intimately influencing the destinies of governments. He is especially concerned with the future development of Europe’s racial affairs, and with the mental unfoldment of the American and Australian peoples. While in physical incarnation, Count Rakoczi was an Hungarian, and at one time a well known figure at the Hungarian court, even being referred to in historical records. In other incarnations He became known historically as the Comte de St Germain and, before that, in England, He first used the personality of Roger Bacon and subsequently again that of Francis Bacon. Although the Master R is on the Seventh Ray, most of the pupils under His direct guidance are on the Third Ray. He works mainly through esoteric ritual and ceremonial, and is vitally interested in religious ceremonial. With the Seventh Ray of Organization and Ceremonial Order now coming into prominence, Master R’s function of synthesizing all aspects of the Plan on the physical plane is becoming more clearly defined. It is His responsibility to materialize that new civilization for which all men are waiting. As the Leader of the Third Ray department of Intelligence, it is also His function to co-ordinate the activities of the Fifth Ray groups of Concrete Science, and those of the seventh Ray of Ceremonial Order. Every effort is now being exerted to arrest the existing chaos throughout the world, and out of this to produce the foundations for the ordered beauty of the future. The forces of evil are energetically opposing these efforts by sowing seeds of discord, disruption, insecurity, uncertainty and fear. To counter all this is the supremely difficult task of the Count, a task, however, being lightened since the Seventh Ray is year by year becoming more potent, and its effects are definitely becoming noticeable to those with the eyes to see. The tide has turned! Tuesday – Third Ray Pink flame: pure divine love, adoration, tolerance

ORION (Twin ray: Angelika), the Elohim of the third ray.   Website – www.saintgermainfoundation.org      THE MASTER OF FOURTH RAY –MASTER SERAPHIS BEY Ascended Master of the Ray of Purity The ascended master Serapis Bey is the Chohan of the Fourth Ray, the white ray of purity. Serapis Bey emphasizes harmony and discipline. Disciples in his retreat are assigned to work on projects with others, teaching them the importance of serving together harmoniously, supporting one another. His many lifetimes exemplify his devotion to purity of motive. Serapis Bey served on Atlantis as a high priest. Before the sinking of Atlantis, he moved the ascension flame to Luxor, Egypt. Serapis Bey and his disciples are fierce and immovable in their dedication to purity and to the disciplines required for the ascension. Serapis Bey is Chohan of the Fourth Ray, the white ray. Some fourth-ray qualities are purity, discipline, joy, hope and excellence. Serapis works with students to help them develop these qualities, gain mastery in the base-of-the-spine chakra and gradually and safely raise the kundalini fire that is stored in that chakra. He is a great devotee of the Divine Mother and of her light and fire within all souls. Sometimes called “the disciplinarian” because of his fierce determination to save souls from self-indulgence and to move them along the most efficient path to their ascension, Serapis can help people prepare to receive the Holy Spirit’s gift of the working of miracles. Serapis spent many lifetimes along the Nile, and as the Egyptian pharaoh Amenhotep III he constructed the physical temple at Luxor. His most familiar incarnation was Leonidas, the great warrior who led the Spartans in the famous battle at Thermopylae, Greece. Wednesday – Fourth Ray Crystal white flame: pureness, resurrection, ascent
The Ascended Master SERAPIS is the Chohan of the fourth ray and the governor of the ascension flame
GABRIEL (Archaii: Hope), the Archangel of the resurrection.
CLAIRE (Twin ray: Astrea), the Elohim of pureness Website related:  www.theheartscenter.org/Default.aspx     Hilarion, Chohan of the Fifth Ray     HilarionHilarion is Chohan of the Fifth Ray, the green ray, of truth, science, vision and prosperity. He works with souls to help them gain mastery in the third-eye chakra and green-ray qualities, including healing and the science of holding the immaculate concept. (The immaculate concept is any pure thought held by one person on behalf of another.) The Fifth Ray is related to the third-eye chakra while the ray’s color is an emerald green. With regards to this area of work, Hilarion’s influence is not solely healing, but also includes music and science and focused ‘vision’ through the perceptions of the third-eye. One source adds that Hilarion often works with the Archangel Raphael, who similarly serves on the Fifth Ray. The apostle Paul was one of Hilarion’s incarnations. By stages Paul put on the mantle of his Lord and accomplished many works as his instrument in healings, miracles, prophecies and fiery conversions. This was the true path Jesus Christ meant his apostles to walk. Today Hilarion guides students on the path of putting on the mantle of their Higher Self to accomplish these works and more. His last incarnation was Saint Hilarion, the fourth century hermit and healer who performed countless miracles. As an ascended master, Hilarion sponsors teachers of truth, religious leaders and missionaries, as well as those practicing the healing arts, scientists and engineers in all fields, musicians, and those specializing in computer and space technology. He is also the eternal empiricist who brings the seeker to the initiatic path spoken of by the apostle Paul: “And ye shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free!” He is concerned with helping atheists, agnostics, skeptics and others empirically centered who, often through no fault of their own, have become disillusioned with life and religion and have no outer knowledge of the path of individual Christhood. Hilarion helps prepare souls to receive the Holy Spirit’s gift of healing. His etheric retreat is called the Temple of Truth and is located over the island of Crete in Greece. The Ascended Master Hilarion is the Chohan of the Fifth Ray. He embodies the qualities of healing and wholeness, music and science, and one-pointed vision (the action of the third-eye). His retreat is in the etheric octave above Crete, Greece. At his retreat, Hilarion prepares us to receive the gift of healing. The Apostle Paul As Paul, Hilarion was taught Jewish law at the feet of Gamaliel, one of the greatest scholars who ever lived. This training proved to be an effective preparation for his apostlic mission in which he wrote letters and delivered sermons throughout Asia Minor and the Mediterranean for thirty years. During the three years he spent in Arabia, Paul received inner teaching from Jesus in Jesus’ etheric retreat over what is now known as “the Holy Land.”. Before his conversion, Paul (called Saul at that time) persecuted Christians. He stood by and consented to the stoning of Saint Stephen, the first Christian martyr.This karma prevented Paul from ascending–even in spite of his martyrdom–at the conclusion of his magnificent life as the apostle. Saint Hilarion Hilarion’s soul later reincarnated as the great Saint Hilarion, who died around the year 371 A.D. Saint Hilarion was a hermit and a healer all of his life. He was able to fulfill the healing mission he began as the apostle Paul, as he was able to balance the karma of persecuting Christians that he had incurred as Saul. Hilarion spent twenty years in the desert preparing for his mission. He cast out evil spirits and healed thousands of people. They would never leave him alone. They followed him across the desert and over the sea, so empowered was he with Jesus’ mantle of healing. At the conclusion of this life, Hilarion made his ascension. If you are interested in the healing arts, you will find the stories about Hilarion in the Lords of the Seven Rays fascinating.Especially inspiring and enlightening are the descriptions of the rituals of exorcism that both Paul and Hilarion practiced. To master the Fifth Ray, one must first achieve balance in the power, wisdom and love of the first three rays as well as the Divine Mother’s white light on the Fourth Ray. Obtaining this mastery leads to the balance needed to be an effective scientist, musician or healer.

VISTA (Twin ray: Kristall), the Elohim of the fifth ray, of concentration, of music and the all-seeing eye.   THE MASTER OF THE SIXTH RAY – MASTER JESUS   According to esoterists Jesus was an enlightened and a God realised individual. More than that he was a prophet, the Messiah for the Jews, and the World Teacher for the Age of Pisces, the Age which is now coming to an end. As a God realised being he expressed his unity with God by saying, “I and the Father are one.” According to Benjamin Creme Jesus ate fish and goat’s cheese and most of his disciples were fishermen who later became the ‘fishers of men’ showing his association with the Piscean symbol fish. In addition he provided his body as the vehicle for the Christ to manifest and therefore known as Jesus Christ. According to Creme Jesus was born in the year 24 BC and was named Jeshu Ben Pandira. He demonstrated the five expansions of consciousness, which makes a man an enlightened Master by symbolically going through each of them. His birth in Bethlehem symbolised the first initiation, the birth of Christ in the cave of the human heart. His baptism in the Jordan River by John the Baptist symbolised the second initiation during which the Christ consciousness descended on him in the form of a dove, entered his body and stayed with him until his crucifixion. His transfiguration symbolised the third initiation, while his crucifixion symbolised the fourth initiation, which is known as great renunciation in the east. His ascension to heaven symbolised the ascension (6th) initiation. Jesus was raised from the dead by his teacher the Christ who entered his body 3 days after his death. Jesus was no longer in that body and it was the Christ whose personal name Lord Maitreya who lived in that body for the 41 days after the resurrection. This symbolised the fifth initiation the resurrection initiation. Jesus Christ is known as Sananda in the inner planes. He is the Master of the sixth ray, the ray of abstract idealism and devotion, which is indigo. During His incarnation as Jesus, He was a high priest in the order of Melchizedek and was overshadowed during His life by Lord Maitreya. He also had lives as Adam, Enoch, Jeshua, Joshua, Elijah and Joseph of Egypt. He works with Archangel Uriel to bring peace, brotherhood, service and freedom to people. Many missionaries, lawyers, public servants, social workers, blue collar workers, farmers and business people are on this ray.

Saint Germain is Chohan of the Seventh Ray, the violet ray, of freedom, alchemy, justice, mercy and transmutation. He is the sponsor of the United States of America and the hierarch of the age of Aquarius, who comes bearing the gift of the violet flame for world change. He tutors and initiates souls in mastery of the seat-of-the-soul chakra, preparing them to receive the Holy Spirit’s gifts of prophecy and the working of miracles. In a series of recent embodiments from the prophet Samuel to Francis Bacon, Saint Germain was the all-pervasive mind, laying the empirical foundation for an age of enlightenment, pushing back the barriers of limitation in the physical and spiritual sciences. As Roger Bacon he directed and inspired devotees of the sacred science, then in his embodiment as Saint Germain, the Wonderman of Europe, he outpictured the quintessence of the alchemists’ dream for all to see. The Ascended Master Saint Germain teaches that the highest alchemy is the transformation of one’s human consciousness into the divinity of the Higher Self. He stands ready to assist all souls in this endeavor. He has also said he would release the technology of the Aquarian age when the nations shall have put behind them the destructive uses of science and religion to accept the challenge which lies at the heart of both, which is for man to enter his heart and the nucleus of the atom and to harness from both the unlimited spiritual and physical resources to establish the golden age.

  1. VEDIC SCHOOL

              VEDAS are the most sacred  scriptures which depict the science of Natures workings .they  reveals the occult workings of Nature underlying in manifestation of all the worlds we live in

. “Veda” means wisdom. It is derived from the root “Vid” meaning “to know”, to realise. The text of the Veda is passed on as wisdom to be realised by us. Veda is known as “Sruti”, ‘what is heard’, or ‘revealed by the Supreme being Brahman’. That is why the composers of the hymns are called “Drashtarah”, lit. seers. The Veda is described as ‘apaurusheya’ to emphasise its superhuman, divine origin. According to the tradition of Brahmavidya, Veda consists of Mantram, Brahmanam, Aranyakam and Upanishad. The mantra part is known as Samhita. The Brahmanas elaborate upon the use of the mantra. The Aranyakas lay stress on Upasana and meditation while the Upanishads focus on Jnana. Sometime the ordering of the fourfold Veda is very striking as in Taittiriya Samhita (Krishna or Black Yajur Veda), Taittiriya Brahmanam, Taittiriya Aranyakam, and Taittiriya Upanishad. There are four collections or Samhitas of the Veda known as Rig Veda, Yajur Veda, Sama Veda and Atharva or Atharvana Veda. 

Ranked among the most ancient of the scriptures in the world, the four Vedas have an inner truth about them. The word “Rig” means “Voice uttered”. We utter a word through our voice. “Yajus” means ‘plan’ or ‘work executed’. Whenever we speak, it is for the purpose of explaining, learning, or working out something. Without any meaning or significance, no one goes on speaking. Always we mean something, we want to explain something or listen to something. We call this the meaning of a sentence and also the subject of our conversation. When we read a book, we call it the material or input of the book. “Sama” means ‘the song of breath’ or ‘respiration’. The realisation of the voice uttered as respiration is called Sama Veda. The word “Atharva” means ‘wisdom of lesser importance’. We have an intelligence that works on day to day application. With this intelligence we take up professional activities, we meet each other, we go to the office, come home, get educated, we marry and have children, have a house, a vehicle and many other things. This is what is called Lower Wisdom and what we call Worldly Wisdom. We scientifically call it the applied aspect of wisdom. This wisdom undergoes change over a period of time with change of values.

The four Vedas exist in everyone of us. 

H.P. Blavatsky’s cryptic remark in “The Secret Doctrine” hints at the true nature of Veda, the scripture. [ Citing her own words in “Isis”, she comments about on old book” : “It is the only original copy now in existence” (The Secret Doctrine”, XLIII)

By “the only original copy”, she refers to the “I am” consciousness in you. In the nature of things, it is always singular, never plural. So the consciousness in you is called the scripture that exists in the world. This is called the “Only original copy”. Many readers thought of the loss of all copies, leaving behind a rare book in its only form, the one copy existing in the world. When she added that this copy is preserved in a cave temple, people began exploring mountains, caves, and jungles, but in vain. Madame Blavatsky meant, of course, the inner layer of our psychological labyrinth, where we have to delve into the innermost recesses of consciousness to find that copy.

We must know how to understand these great books. They teach only about one book: Always you are the only “I AM” i.e., singular. In Sanskrit, “Aham” means “I am”. According to Yogasastra, “so” means ‘objectivity’, “something different from yourself”. In Sanskrit “so” means “He”, “Aham” means “I (AM)”. We are expected to practice through respiration the idea that he is myself and I am himself. Inhale with the sound “so” and breathe out with the sound “ham” and meditate upon the idea that objective air within is the same as subjective air without. To utter the word I AM, we use the same air as when we utter HE IS. Respiration links objectivity and subjectivity. These are called the original forms of scriptures and if you remove S and H sounds from “SOHAM”, you get “OM” – the mystic sound which is common to everyone. Madame Blavatsky called it the Universal Affirmative and Lord Krishna called it I AM.

On this basis, let us try to understand the meaning of the Scriptures. A Scripture never means any book existing somewhere or any book on any religion. A religion owns this original book. All the scriptures of various religions explain this one book only. Whenever any book is written about this one existence, that book is called a Scripture. If any book is written about something else it is called an ordinary book. This book of wisdom is there within you not outside and this is exactly the esoteric and original meaning of the word Veda. If a scholar speaks of Veda as books, he does not know what it means esoterically. But if a Master of Wisdom speaks about Veda, he is speaking about the ONE who is speaking as well as listening in everybody.

Our speech passes through four stages. The first is our respiration. The next is our voice which comes out of respiration and then when we are breathing, we have mind and this mind is called Yajur Veda or existence as mind. So we have respiration, voice, the mind and the application. The respiration which is called Sama Veda is without our intention or knowledge but we are only conscious of ourselves after breathing. The Bible says ” first there was the word, the word was with God and the word was God.” These are the three stages after that the word is there with us and we are here ourselves, different from the word. The Vedas explain and discuss these things. That is why the subject of discussion is called Veda, and not the book. The Bible or Bhagavad Gita, mean not the paper or ink or the print, but the content and we have to understand “Veda” in the same sense.

These are the four Vedas or the four topics that are to be studied in the name of scripture. If you approach an orientalist, he will be able to give the number of mantras in the Vedas , how they are translated , how they are printed etc. This is all exoteric work which is important but if you stop there, it has no significance. So there is something higher which is intended and we are expected to go into in the next stage of our existence. This is the reason why we are asked to read the scriptures.



The Secret of Veda

Veda is the modulation of the melodious cosmic rhythm through the human voice. It is given to man to inculcate a spiritual outlook in him and to lead him towards the goal of self realisation. Its sacred potency lies hidden to be tapped only through its correct pronunciation and its use of the correct intonation (“Swara”). The cosmic melody is bound by the laws of harmonious rhythm in nature known as “Chandassu.” (Metre)

The principles of chandassu are revealed in the secrets of the mathematical science expounded by Pythogoras. 

When cosmic movement adheres to laws a stable wave length for sound will be established in our biosphere. At that time cosmic matter will concretise in a regulated pattern. 

This symmetry is referred to by the seer Plato as the Geometrical science of the universe. It has to be realised that all forms, from that of a crystal of salt to that of the amazingly dextrous human body, are etched by the same master sculptor-God. He is verily the Viswakarma celebrated in the scriptures as the sculptor of devas. What is the ultimate goal of the vedas that revealed themselves to man? It is to explain that this whole universe is an expansion of the primordial sound “Omkara”. This sound-matter synthesis Omkara first divided itself into three sound-forms. From these three sound forms were derived the seven vowels. These seven vowels later descended to earth as seven swaras or tunes. After that they emerged as musical notes formed by the integration of these swaras. Thus it was said that the vedic chants originated from the first triad of manifested sound. The concretisation of these sounds into chants was achieved by the utterance of consonants. Then after union with defined forms and meanings these sounds collectively crystallised into this manifested universe. To one who has the power to visualise, such an utterance of Sound is verily the materialisation of the advancing pace of Goddess Saraswathi in the form of mantra.

           MIHIRA imparts the Vedas  through vedic school which nourishes the infant souls with divine wisdom of the god .through chanting Vedas vocally enables to exprienceand taste the bliss of life.

Twelve propositions to an organiser

“By your thought you rise. By your thought you fall”, is the key to the progress of an individual, a family, an organisation or an institution. The thought patterns of a man decide his progress. The man who cherishes the welfare of his family and his society always progresses in his individual and social life. Indian scriptures abound in words of advice on this theme, and leaders, a heads of the organisations, or institutions can profit immensely from them. Here, we present to the learned readers a few ethical aspects gathered from the scriptures. 

Proposition 1: Try to understand why you like a person. Likes and dislikes are two sides of a coin. Therefore, make sure your likes are backed by sound reasoning.

Proposition 2 : Try to understand why you dislike a person. The dislike in your mind should have a logical basis as well. If you get a satisfactory answer to the question of your dislike, your opinion is right. 

Proposition 3 : Your interpretations of likes and dislikes depend on your emotions. It follows that if you like a person on the emotional plane, you will not get a rational reasoning for your likes. You are not yet ready to become a successful organiser. 

Proposition 4 : If there are too many persons whom you dislike, it means you have many blind spots in understanding others. 

Proposition 5 : The presence of bad traits in others need not drive you to dislike them. Dislike resides your mind. This is one of the secrets an organiser is expected to understand and accept. 

Proposition 6 : Everyone likes himself. You should understand why and in which respect you like yourself. You should note why others like themselves and on which grounds. An organiser should not look at bad traits in others He should discover how others can be useful to the organisation. If an organiser notices only the bad traits in others, it shows that he is petty minded. 

Proposition 7 : If the bad traits of another person come in the way of the functioning of the organisation, a difficulty arises. Even then there is no need for the organiser to dislike him/her. He can ask him/ her to improve his/her skills. 

Proposition 8 : When you tackle a person, question yourself as to how you can make him work in the organisation meaningfully and gainfully. If a change of responsibility benefits the organisation, this can be suggested to him. 

Proposition 9 : If you can not put up with a person whom you cannot like, it means you will meet with serious obstacles in the functioning of the organisation. 

Proposition 10 : Personal difficulties at work should be tackled with sympathy before you can make another person work properly. 

Proposition 11 : The best way to meet the personal difficulties of various individuals is to include two procedures :
a) Preparing a good substitute for each job. b) Persuading everyone in the organisation to contribute a small amount of money every month. After a few months you will be able to lend this money to individuals in need. This gives them a sense of security and prevents them from spending time on borrowing from others. Let the individual repay in instalments. Even small sums of interest will add up to a considerable amount. 

Proposition 12 : Arrange for medical aid which will foster loyalty to the organisation.

4.  HARMONY THROUGH MUSICAL  AND CULTURAL AWARENESS

                      Believing the music is doorway to reach god and it is tool which helps tranmutates the lower nature into divine nature  Mihira is conducting musical classes and literary programmes inoder to promte fine sense of knowledge about impoertance of ancient Indian peorty and music.

 Indian Music
The beginning
   
                    

[ Indian music has a glorious history as it has originated from time immemorial. It evolved over the centuries right from the Vedic period and its vital tradition is carried on even today by Bhaktas (devotees) singing in praise of God. Surprisingly little attention is paid to the historical evolution of Indian music by learned men. A noted musician and scholar, Mr. IVL Sastry in a series of articles made sincere attempts to present the historical growth of Indian music over the years. The present article focuses the Vedic period and the development of music in this subcontinent.
                                                               


The history of Indian music can be broadly divided into three periods: 1) From the ancient times, i.e., Prehistoric period 2000 B.C. to 500 B.C; 2) From the Medieval Period, i.e.,500 BC to the time of Purandara-dasa 1500 AD, and 3) From Purandara dasa to the time of post – Thyagaraja period i.e., the Modern period.

(1) Ancient Music :

Between 2000 BC and 500 BC Vedic literature developed. This literature can be divided into main sub-heads. a) “Samhita” which was written in poetry and (b) “Brahmana” which was written in prose. The “Samhita” portion contains sacred hymns which were either narrated or sung during religious performances. The “Brahmana” portion described the rules and regulations of various religious rites, and is further divided into (1) “Aranyaka” and (2) “Upanishad”. Besides these parts, Vedic literature comprises portions called “Vedanta”, “Siksha”, “Prati-Sakhya” etc., The literature of the Vedas was very rich, and the language and the system of grammar were far superior to languages prevailing during that period. Vedic literature is divided into 4 heads. (a) Rig-Veda (b) Sama Veda ( c ) Yajur-Veda, and (4) Atharvana-Veda.

Rig-veda :

This is the oldest source, and contains various Rigs (Poems) in praise of deities such as Indra, Varun, Agni, Vayu etc. Eminent Rishis such as Viswamitra, Athri, Bharadwaja, Vasishta are among the chief composers, to whom the hymns were revealed. 

It is said that the Vedas were created by Brahma, the creator of the Universe. This means that this literature dates from time immemorial, and no human being is credited with the authorship of this vast and rich literature. Rig-Veda is also called “SRUTI”.

Sama – veda and music :

Ancient Indian music is to be found in Sama-Veda. This is the oldest text of music in the world. The word “Sama” means sweet note, or tune based on harmony. “Sama” also contains the sol-fa letters, of Indian music “Sa” and “Ma”, which are harmonical and very important notes in the Indian and world music systems. Sama Veda is suitable to be sung to the accompaniment of instruments both tonal and percussion.

This is also a part of Rig-Veda, sung in a style unique to “Stavam” or eulogy. Sama Veda is also divided into two main parts i.e., “Samhita” “Brahmana”. The “Sama-samhita” has two further divisions called the “Archika” and “Stavika” There are 585 Rigs or Suktas (poems) in the Archika part and 1223 Suktas in the “Stavika” part. Out of these, 539 and 794 Suktas were taken from Rig Veda and the balance was the creation in Sama Veda. Samaganam was related to religious performance and was sung by “Ritwiks” or priests. Separate tunes and rhythms were employed to perform different kinds of religious rites. Apart from religious performances, Sama-gana was part of social ceremonies also and made the occasions graceful. Sometimes dances and percussions accompanied vocal music in varied metres and rhythms. Generally men used to take part in percussions and women in dances. The names of the various percussion and stringed instruments used in the functions are mentioned in the Vedas. The Sama Veda was sung according to strict rules.

In the Vedic period two main classes of music were in vogue. They were “Aranya” gana and Gramageyagana. The first one was used in religious performances and the second one in social functions connected with the village people. Aranya Gana was sung by Vedic Rishis who were generally called Samagas. They officiated in the ritual roles known as “Hota”, “Adwaryu”, “Udgata” and “Brahman”. “Brahman” was regarded as the director of the party and the whole musical performance was conducted under his guidance. In the modern times this systems is still followed as in the case of Brinda Ganam of Keertanas.

Samagana used to be sung on the basis of Seven Bhaktis with twenty-two “Aksharas” as detailed below :

S.No. Name of the Bhakti No. of Aksharas

1.Himkara 3
2.Adi2
3.Upadrava4
4.Prastava3
5.Udgita3
6.Nidhana3
7.Pratihara4

The process of singing and the category of the singer were predetermined for different Bhaktis. For example Himkara-Bhakti which was a chorus song was first sung by all “Ritwiks” to sanctify the atmosphere of the pujasthali or place of worship. Other Bhaktis were sung to summon the deity, to install Him to worship, for praise and to take leave of Him after seeking his blessing. The allocation of Aksharas in these Bhaktis conforms to that of Sruthis in Gandhara-Grama which was in vogue in the Medieval period. Before the beginning of the Samagana, there was he custom of meditating upon the feet of the God who was going to be worshipped. In the medieval period this gave rise to the interpretation of ragas through appropriate, evocative , pictorial sketches. 

Aranyagana is aristocratic in nature and was sung in Tapovan or hermitage only. The ancient Rishis did not lose sight of the requirements of the village people also. For that purpose they created Gramageyagana. As this was to be sung by villagers for the villagers the rules were not stringent. Among its chief expressions are  (1) “Vegna”, involving distortion of systematic musical structure without following grammar and theories (2) “Prakriti-Gana” in conformity to the surrounding nature, and (3) Yoni-Gana, concerned with birth and development.

“Gramageyagana” was indigenous in nature. After the arrival of the Aryans, the Rishis made many improvements in the subject and refined it into Aranya-Gana which was latter called “Marga-Sangeet”. The involvement of several scales in music was first mooted by the Aryans in their Aranya-Gana.
It was said that the aboriginal Indians of the hunter class used to charm wild animals and birds by applying Gandharagrama in their music and kill them for their own selfish needs. The Aryan Rishis imposed many restrictions on the propagation and practice of these classical arts so that they were not misused by the illiterate and the purity of the science was preserved. This created defections among the people of that time and an inferior variety of Veda was called “Atharvana Veda” was created later on. It was rather harmful to human society instead of being beneficial. 

The work of the Aryans paved the way for the emergence of several musical scales in the medieval period which were founded on pure scientific principles. The system evolved subsequently was so great that the musicians all over the world acclaimed this as the best science based on sound principles.

In the Vedic period several kinds of musical instruments were in vogue. These include (1) Tata (String), (2) Sushir (Wind), (3) Ghana (Metallic – Symbol type), (4) Avanatha (Membrano Phone).
Many types of Veenas and percussion instruments were popular during that period. Veena and Flute find their place in the Pre-Historic times. Some varieties of Veena are (1) Ektara (with one string) Chitra Veena (Sitar) with Seven Strings and other varieties called as Vipanchi Veena, Phani Veena, Karkari Veena, etc. Percussion instruments of that time are Mridangam, Dumdubhi, Bhumidumdubhi, Damarukam etc.,

In the Rig, Yajur and Atharva Vedas only 3 notes called Anudatta (Nishada), Swaritha (Shadjama) and Udatta (Rishabha) were used. But in Samaganam 7 notes Ma Ga Ri Sa Ni Da Pa were used in the order of descent (Avarohana). These notes correspond to the notes of Hara-Priya (Modern Kharaharapriya). Subsequently the full scale of Hara Priya both “Arohana” and “Avarohana” was developed. Thyagaraja, in his krithi, “Nada Thanumanisam” defined the “Sama Saptakam” (SA-RI-GA-MA-PA-DA-NI) of the above notes.

Further developments occurred after 500 BC, i.e., the period of Narada, the Medieval period.




A brief history of IndianMusic – II
Medieval period
   
                    

At the end of the Vedic period, the contemporary munis wrote some books called Sikshas and Pratisakhyas detailing the rules of grammar involved in Vedic literature in respect of its language and music so that the purity of the original Vedic literature is not mauled by raw and immature Pandits.

The first of its kind can be found in Naradiya-Siksha supposed to have been written in the 5th century BC. There were some other books also said to have been written by “Narada” but in different subsequent periods. They are 1) Sangeetha – Makarandam 7th-11th centuries A.D., 2) Ragini-Roopam, Swarnaravam and Naradeeyam 16-18th centuries A.D. There was also another ancient book called Sangeetopanishad written by “Narada” the period of which is not known. From the above it is assumed that in the ancient times musicologists used to be called “Naradas” till the period of Muni “Bharatha”. Subsequent Musicologists were called either “Bharatha” or “Narada” where the original name of the writer of a book was not traced.

Naradiya Siksha deals mainly with the musical notes and the pronunciation of the words in the Vedic language. Vedic language contained 16 vowels and the Naradiya Siksha gives the details to maintain the sonorousness of the language.

According to Naradiya Siksha, Samagana used to be performed by a combination of vital musical elements comprising of 1. Seven-notes (Saptha-swaras) 2) Three gramas (Shadja, Madhyama, Gandhara grama) 3. Twenty one Murchanas (Scales) and 49 Tanas. Names of the seven notes mentioned therein were 1. Prathama (first) (2) Dvitiya (second) 31 Tritiya (third) 4) Chaturdha (forth) 5. Mandra (low) 6. Krusta (loud) 7. Atiswara (too loud) In Yajnavalkya Siksha the names of the seven were given as SA-RI-GA-MA-PA-DA-NI- which belong to Gandharva-Veda. During that period all these notes were used by the Rishis in the “Aranya Gana” 

“Sangeetha Makaranadam” written by another Narada subsequently deals among other things, the classification of Ragas as “Sthree” (feminine)” Purusha (Masculine) “Napumsaka” (Genderless) and the time in which a Ragam has to be sung such as “sandhi-prakasa” “Suryamsa” “Chandramsa” “Udaya” “Madhyahna” “Sayankala” and the mode in which a ragam has to be sung such as “Mukthangampita” “Ardha-kampita” Kampa-Viheena” etc.,

The next important mile stone in musicology can be traced from the renowned work Natya Sastra supposed to have been written in the 4th century. Here too the controversy in respect of the time as well as the existence of more than one Bharatha exists. Various musicologists trace the period of Natya-Sastra from 4th century BC to 3rd century A.D. stretching over a period of 700 years and all the musicologists give valid arguments for their conclusions which can not be dismissed as unsubstantive. Hence the logical conclusion to this controversy is that the works of some musicologists whose names were not available were given the names of either “Bharatha” or “Narada”. So the book Natya-Sastra or the Natya-Veda was associate with the names “Brahma Bharatha”, “Adi Bharatha”, “Druhin Bharatha” or Sadashiva Bharatha” “Muni Bharatha” etc., as its author. At present the Natya-Sastra Compiled by Muni-Bharatha only is available.

Natya Sastra written by Muni-Bharatha dealt with various aspects of drama, i.e., the nature and quality of the actor and actress and their movement, various types of dresses used during action, the system of entrance and exit, formation of stage and its directions, the size and dimension of auditorium, various constituents of drama, the system of rehearsal, various manners of acting, construction of orchestral group and their setting arrangement, etc. Only 5 or 6 chapters have been ted to music. Here an interesting point is that, Muni Bharatha has himself written in Natya Sastra that he collected the material from Natya-Veda created by “Brahma-Bharatha” who compiled the information from Chatur Vedas. The book Natya Veda could not, however, be traced for the purpose of reference.

Regarding music the following aspects were dealt with besides various other matters.

1. Nibaddha Gana i.e. circumvented by rhythm and Anibaddhagana (Not bound by rhythm) i.e. Ragalapana.

2. Various types of songs called “Druva”, “Madraka”, “Vardhamanaka” “Brahmageethi,” “Magadhi,” “Ardha-Magadhi”, “Sambhavita” etc. These were sung either in chorus or solo. So both polyphonic and monophonic music were in vogue in ancient India.

At the end of The Vedic period, the Samagana which was popular till then, went in to the state of oblivion due to various restrictions imposed by The Hindu caste system and the difficulties involved in its performance. Further with the growth of Buddhism religious ritualism and sacrifices received a set back and along with it the Samagana too.

During that period in the state of Gandhara (now in Pakistan) a group of people practised a special type of music as a profession for generations and they possessed and perfected it by hierarchy and heredity. This music was called Gandharvagana which attracted the common man during that period. In respect of Samagana also the common man yelled for a change and Marga-Sangeetha with some relaxations in the Samagana was created.

Natya Sastra says that Nibaddha and Anibaddhagana can be called Marga-sangeetha. This was used for ritual and devotional purposes for the upliftment of man whereas Gandharvagana used to be performed in Royal courts and sophisticated musical circles only for enjoyment. 

Natyasastra further deals with the Shadja-grama and Madhyamagrama and the existence of 22 sruthis in a Swara Saptaka. Though a mention was made of Gandhara-grama, it was not in existence and was supposed to be sung in heaven only. Muni-Bharata carried out some experiments with the help of Dhruvaveena (Immovallotable) and “Chala veena” (Movable) to determine the number of srutis existing in each note.

The next important development in Indian music came during the period of Matanga who existed during the post Bharatha and pre Sarangadeva periods. The book written by him called Brihaddesi was very famous and authoritative in dealing with the subject of musicology. Several aspects were dealt with by him among which were. 1. Decisions on 22 sruthis 2. Several scales 3. Several thans 4. 33 Alankaras 5. The characteristics of Ragas 6. 40 varieties of prabandhas 7. Several wind and stringed instruments, etc.

It was said by Matanga that Nada is the origin of all sounds which over cast the entire universe. It is lying in Brahma grandhi of the human body. It was further said that “Na” means life (air) and “Da” means (Agni-energy) and “Nada” is produced with the combination of internal air and energy. He further divided Nada

1. Atisukshma (extremely delicate) and Sukshma (delicate)
2. Avyakta (inexpressible) and “Vyakta” (expressible) and
3. Kritrima (artificial)

Human voice does not posses musical quality by nature. Great effort has to be made to suit it to musical tune. That is why it was called as artificial Nada though it is very sweet.

The next important stage for the development of Indian music occurred in the 12th and 13th centuries A.D. From the 4th century BC to this period all the musicologists concentrated their works mainly on dancing and dealt with music as a secondary item, but hereafter much attention was paid to the subject of Music also.

Saranga Deva (12th & 13th centuries A.D.) was a great scholar in music and literature. He was the Aasthanavidwan” of Devagiri estate (a part of erstwhile Hyderabad state). His book titled Sangeetha ratnakara was very famous and authoritative. He elaborated vividly the formation of twenty two Srutis on the basis of “Shadja-panchama” and “Shadja -madhyama” relationship. Further he has dealt with and explained in detail the contents of the great works of Bharatha, Mathanga, Keerthidhara, Kohala, Abhinavagupta, Someswara etc. Further he devoted separate chapters to “Swara prastara, Ragalapa, Prabhadham, Thalam, “Instrumental Music and Dance.

During this period Indian music was divided into two main branches, i.e. Hindusthani Music and Carnatic Music Due to Mohammedan rule in Northern India Indian music of that region got mixed up with the Persian style of music and was called Hindusthani – Music. So Hindustani Music has many similarities with the Carnatic Music as well as dissimilarities. Subsequently these two styles developed in different routes. Hindusthani musicians concentrated mainly with sruthi, purity of the note by applying the Gamaka to the minimum extent, “Ragalapana” based on prolonged notes, Thalaprasthana based on Aakaram, etc.,. Carnatic Music developed on the application of more Gamakas, Thalaprasthara based on Swara Kalpana Ragalapana in small bits of phrases, and intricate thala patterns etc.

In Sangeetha – Ratnakara The principles of formation of Vikrita swaras were dealt with but these principles underwent several changes in the hands of subsequent musicologists and the present system of Vikrita swaras varies with the principles enunciated in Sangeetharatnakara.

The next important event in the evolution of Carnatic Music in the last lap of the medieval period can be traced to the time of Vidyaranya and Annamacharya. Vidyaranya wrote a book called Sangeetha-Saramu and he was the pioneer for the formation of Mela Kartha and Janya-Raga system now in vogue which was subsequently perfected by Venkata Makhi and “Govinda-mathya”. Annamacharya was a great Vaggeyakaraka (composer of music and literature) and created innumerable “Padams” also called as Sankeerthanas. He wrote in Sanskrit a unique book called Sankeerthana – lakshanam” which was translated into Telugu by his grandson China Thirumalacharya. His compositions were preserved in The T.T. Devasthanam in several copper plates. The literary part of his compositions only is available and the music portion of his composition was not available as no notational background to these compositions could be traced. Further the system of writing the notation for the songs created was not developed during that period.



Indian Poetician
                                               

On reading a good poem or viewing a well-presented drama, one’s heart is filled with as inexplicable joy called Rasa in the parlance of literature. One can understand if this is with reference to a poem or drama where the theme is love. Because love is the most blissful experience in real world also. But one is at a loss to understand the joy that pervades his heart even while reading or viewing a pathetic scene or a frightening episode. Because one’s experience in the real world with regard to pathos and horror are not on the same lines. Here comes the term Rasa which explains this phenomenon.

Rasa as used by the poeticians has two meanings one is sentiment. There are nine Rasas in literature, namely Sringara (erotic), Hasya (comic) , Karuna (pathetic), Vira (heroic), Raudra (furious), Bhayanaka (terrible), Bibhatsa (odious) ,Adbhuta (marvellous) and Santa (peaceful). The other meaning of Rasa is the aesthetic experience or the joy aroused in the hearts of the connoisseurs by the proper delineation of a sentiment in a poem or drama. In this sense we come across phrases like “awakening of Rasa”, the poem is full of Rasa etc.
It is Bharata, the author of Natyasastra who first explained how Rasa is accomplished in his maxim- Vibhavanubhava- vyabhicari-samyogad Rasa-nispattih. Rasa is accomplished as a result of the conjunction of Vibhava, Anubhava and Vyabhicaribhava.

What are these Bhavas? Let’s acquaint ourselves with technical terms first, because these are inseparably associated with the discussion of Rasa.

Vibhava, is the objective condition that causes an emotion hence an excitant. It is of two types. Alambana, the person with reference to whom the emotion is manifested and Uddipana, the circumstances that excite the emotion. For the hero, the heroine is the Alambana and the Moon cool breeze etc. are the, Uddipana.

Anubhava is the consequent i.e., the bodily expression that reveals the emotions. For ex: the enchanting smile of the lady, her bashful glances etc. Eight temperamental states called Sattvikabhavas are also considered as Anubhavas. 

Vyabhicaribhavas are the transitory feelings that accompany the emotion, such as anxiety, stupor, delight etc. These are enumerated as thirty three. As these are not permanent and pass in quick succession associating themselves with almost all the sentiments, these are called transitory feelings.

Then there are nine Sthayibhavas corresponding to the nine Rasas. The Sthayis are of the nature of Vasanas and reside in the connoisseur permanently.

Now what is the nature of the conjunction of all these Bhavas? There have been a number of explanations presented by the various commentators and poeticians according to the school of thought they belonged to. The two works Samyoga (conjunction) and Nispatthi (completion or production) are the main sources of contention.

What is the relation between the Bhavas and Rasa? Is it cause and effect? This can’t be because in poetry the pathetic environment also causes delight. Then is it that of the created and the created? This also can’t be as there is not anything created anew. Rasa is only a manifestation of the inherent emotion.

Abhinavagupta explains the realisation of Rasa in his Abhinavabharati ,a commentary on Bharata’s Natyasastra and Locana, a commentary on Anandavardhana’s Dhvanyaloka. His explanation is based on the concept of universalisation propounded by his teacher Bhatta Tauta. It can be thus summarized.

The aesthetic composition of a poet because of its being pregnant with suggestive force is comprehended by the connoisseur devoid of all its local character. Thus the Rama on the stage is neither the real Rama nor the actor who played the part. This Rama becomes a universal character who is experiencing the pangs of separation from his love. This universalisation in its turn leads to a new experience that gets connected with the past impressions and memories dormant to the mind and there by lifting the present experience into a transcendental exhilaration that is akin to the spiritual bliss. This is why even tragedy becomes a source of joy to the connoisseur. 

This is a presentation of the concept of Rasa in brief to acquaint the lay reader with the concept and show how the Indian mind worked to find a solution on philosophical lines about aesthetic experience.
