Jagadisha Shambho (with swaras)

After discussion with the swamis about the challenge of teaching melodies, Priya recorded this to offer a possible method for helping us learn songs. The artist could first sing one line using the words of the song and then sing the same line as swaras. As you will hear, this is an excellent method. Thank you, Priya! She says: The raagam for jagadhIsha shambhoh is: maandu in thamil or maand as its known south of the vindhyas in general. A janyam of shankaraabharanam, this ragam is used for thukkadas and other pieces towards the end of concerts - or occasionally to tune devotional pieces as is the case here.

    A better word than death is transition, passing into a new form of life--life into life. It is similar to moving to a new country, having completed all of one's tasks. Death is a closing of the door on deeds well done, on all beneficial karmas.
