Creation, Preservation, Destruction & Time is She
Sacred Music takes us to a divine realm. The Sanskrit verses stimluates Dance and the dancer dances according to the tune. Bharata Muni, the father of Indian classical dance, initiated this Art in his Natya Sastra. Geetham Vadyam tadha Nritham thrayam sangeetham uchyate - Music becomes complete when dance is added along to Song and lyrics !
Sacred Music rouses the Kundalini thereby making us more spiritual and taking us to a heavenly realm. Music knows no language and even those who cannot understand the meaning of the words employed appreciate it !
It is the Divine Conscious Force, who is infinite in her powers and personalities, which manifests as the triune Deity.
