Tansen
Tansen
Description
Tansen, who was a contemporary of the Mughal Emperor Akbar, is the symbol of the supreme achievements of Indian music. He was not only a great performer but he was also a great composer and musicologist. He was a pioneer who opened up new vistas by breaking down the conventions of Jatis and Ragas.

Indian music had no system of notations and therefore there is no way of knowing how a musician of yore performed. If Tansen is still a living influence today, it is because of his original compositions of everlasting appeal like Miyan Ki Malhar, Darbari Kanada and Miyan Ki Todi. Dhrupad which was becoming popular at that time was also enriched by Tansen's genius.

The legends about Tansen's ability to start a fire with his singing of the Raga Deepak or to bring down rains with the Raga Megh Malhar may not bear the scrutiny of science. But they certainly contain the seed of truth about the immense potentialities of music if evoked by one like Tansen.

Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
