Raga Jaunpuri is associated with Jaunpur where the raga is said to have evolved – at least that is what folklore says.
Jaunpur was an independent Sultanat in the 15th century which had a reputation of being a city dedicated to learning (ilm ka shahar). It was considered second only to Varanasi as a hub of music and musicians.
Raga Jaunpuri is a late morning raga.
My choice for Raga Jaunpuri is Sanjeev Abhayankar and Venkatesh Kumar.
Traffic lights are good study point of 3 colors of light . Red for Stop , Yellow for alert and Green for start as well as Human nature and behavior.
Most of the people get ready like ” Formula One Race “
Race in Time has taken away Grace of Timelessness from most of the human irrespective of Gender .
Slow And Steady Wins The Race should have been Slow And Steady wins the Race with Grace.
Indian classical Music is the Race with Grace .
It starts with Slow Tempo which is Alap that is to have harmony with Space frequency to be with Time.
Flow is the second Part ( Jor ) that is the experience of Timelessness .
Glow is third part that is the Dance of Time on Timeless that is Enlightenment.
On 14 November 2008 , on the occasion Of Children’s Day celebration had honor of listening Divine singer Vidushi Shalmalee Joshi in my Home . it was truly the unfolding of Mystery and magic of Indian Classical Music ……a journey of Creative Enlightenment.
( Artist Impression of the live concert on 14 Nov 2008 )
Slow = The Alap (/æˈlɑːp/; Hindustani: [aːˈlaːp]) is the opening section of a typical North Indian classical performance. It is a form of melodic improvisation that introduces and develops a raga.
Flow = In Hindustaniclassical music, the jor (Hindi: जोर, [dʒoːr]; also spelt jod and jhor) is a formal section of composition in the long elaboration (alap) of a raga that forms the beginning of a performance. It comes after alap and precedes jhala, the climax.
Glow = Jhala (Hindi: झाला, [dʒʱaːla]) is a term in Hindustani classicalmusic which denotes the fast-paced conclusions of classical compositions or raga. It is often characterized by the overwhelming of the melodic component by the rhythmic component.
Jhinjhoti raga is considered as “Ashraya Raga” of Khamaj Thaat OR Parental Scale. Since all the seven notes are used in the raga, its Jati is Sampoorna OR Septatonic.
This raga is generally performed between10.00 p.m. and mid-night .
It opens the secret of life bringing peace, abolishing strife.”
– Kahlil Gibran
Saturday is my day of Music , Listens music everyday but particularly on Saturday listen either one artist from different part of the World or a Indian Classical Raga .
Today I was listening Raga Brindabani Sarang . Raga Time ( 12 pm to 2 pm ) it is a amazing science when you listen this raga in the times there are made for . here are some divine music , which I listened .
Children are Enlightened Masters but without Aware of a Source of Eternal Happinessand Wisdom which an Enlightened Master is aware of .
Yesterday after Her Evening prayer and Yoga , my Grand Daughter Mishka 7 years tells me that in Her opinion We all are One but Do not know How ?
Explained her with the Example Of Earth Atmosphere which is Source of Life for Everyone including me and her as well as all life on Earth.
Since all life on Earth breath from same Atmosphere so we are all connected so inside we are one family and outside we are all Balloons of Different colors having same air inside and together again we make a world family outside also.
During this discussion appeared a Mantra in my Mind which reads as : – अयं बन्धुरयंनेति गणना लघुचेतसाम् उदारचरितानां तु वसुधैव कुटुम्बकम् ॥
Meaning: The distinction “This person is mine, and this one is not” is made only by the ignorant . For those who know the Supreme Truth , the Whole World is One Family
( The words वसुधैव कुटुम्बकम् (vasudhaiva kuTumbakam) come from the मंत्र mantra VI-72 in महा उपनिषद् Maha Upanishad which belongs to sAmaveda tradition. ( Period 1500 to 3000 years BC )
Either people believe there is …..a Cosmic Current of CreationorPeople do not believe there is ….. a Cosmic Current of Creation.
Enlightenment 360ºis …..Knowing the Cosmic Current of Creation
Science is …..knowing the Multiple Uses of Cosmic Current of Creation
Believingandnot believing both are either Spiritual or Scientific philosophies.
Enlightenment 360º is …… Knowing that We all are a World family Inside and World Family Outside from the same Cosmic Current of Creation which was Before Start of Time and will be after End of Time also.
It brings this song also in Mind
Colored bulbs can not colour the Cosmic current of Creation .
