I’ve been wanting to upload one of Karthik Iyer’s videos for sometime. Somehow due to some health issues and other things cropping up, have been unable to come to my blog. It’s been ages since I put up any post. Starting this new year with a video of Karthik Iyer’s violin cover – Nila Kaigirathu. Karthik you do rock. I love your Charukesi, it is so soothing and peaceful…. May this year bring lots of success to you Karthik Iyer! Wishing you all the best…

Is salvation conferred on anyone in this world or is it attainable only to realised souls ?
Oh, Lord ! Is it possible for one having no deep devotion for you or one without any profound
knowledge in divine music to attain salvation ? Pranava or Omkara is generated from the
combination of Prana or vital force and Anala or the fire. It is from Pranava, the seven notes
of divine music emerge. Is salvation obtainable to those who are not able to perceive the mind
of Shiva who derives indescribable pleasure from listening to the divine music of Vina !
