Author Name: Nallan C Mohan | Format: Paperback | Genre : Music & Entertainment | Other Details
Amazon Sales Rank: Ranked #23 in Music

Nava Varna Kritis are a great gift for us all.  The structure of those songs and the ragas selected for each chakra are a beauty. Dikshitar systematically reaches from base to Bindu in each song and explains the greatness of the position of the chakra. The last Mantra Keerthana comprehensively covers all mantras of the chakra. This shows the depth of research and understanding Dikshitar had on the Sri Vidhya Maha Shodasakshari mantra learnt from Sri. Chidambara Swamiji. 

So far, there is no clear notation for such difficult songs and a student finds it difficult to learn the song in a proper way. This book brings out the notation to the benefit of music lovers and students. It provides a brief explanation of each sentence of the song for understanding the same.

Muthuswami Dikshitar’s life incidents in paintings, which are the first of its kind, have been presented in this book. 

The book has been published in three languages: English, Tamil and Telugu for wide circulation.
