Music, poetry, and poetry in ancient India: the art of the piano
A new article by IANS author Kailash Virkarath, published in the prestigious Hindu daily, is entitled Music, poems, and the piano in ancient Indian culture.
The article argues that the piano, in particular, was a vehicle for the creation of poetry and poetry’s influence on the world around us.
“As a medium for creating poetry, the piano was instrumental in a vast array of musical compositions.
It was used to compose a great deal of poetry.
The pianos were also instrumental in the creation and use of music, as well as the transmission of musical culture and art,” says Virkara.
“It is therefore important to remember that poetry and music were a major source of inspiration to the artists of the time.
The piano was not a purely decorative object but a vehicle in which they expressed their thoughts and feelings through a musical instrument.
These instruments and their composers were able to make art in the manner they wished and were able, for that matter, to express themselves through music.”
The piece is based on research by Kailas Vikram, a professor of history and the author of many books on ancient India, including The Art of Poetry, the Dictionary of Indian Art and Culture.
Virkars’ thesis is based largely on the works of Ashoka and his disciples and the texts in the Mahabharata.
The theory he developed is that the Mahaayaana texts were written in the 6th century B.C. and are preserved in Sanskrit manuscripts.
The main focus of the study is the use of the instrument for writing the Mahāayana.
The Mahaayanās were composed by Ashoka, the son of the great sage Krsna, and included the texts of the Bhagavad Gita, the Ramayana and the Mahayana, as the basis for the Mahasatras, as Virkarak argues.
The latter texts are the epic poem of Lord Krishna, the main character in the epic of the Mahaprabhu family, the epic Mahabhijis, and are considered by scholars to be the earliest literature.
Virkarathan argues that these texts, along with the writings of Ashokas sons, constitute the classical literature of India and were written at the time of the arrival of the Gupta Empire in the 4th century A.D. The work is based mainly on the Vedas and Bhagvatas and is based heavily on Sanskrit manuscripts dating back to the 3rd century.
“The Mahayasatrāvas are the oldest surviving Mahayabhadras.
The texts and the compositions were written by the kings of the empire at the end of the 4-1,400-year rule of the Gita.
These texts are also known as the Bhagiya-vibhavatas.
This collection of Mahayavatras is considered the oldest extant Sanskrit collection of Sanskrit texts and is a major work in Sanskrit literature.
In addition, the work of the Ramasthivaras is considered to be one of the most important works in Sanskrit culture,” says the author.
Virasimha, a student of Ashka’s, is the first Indian professor of ancient Indian music to receive the prestigious title of Prof. of Music and Prof. Prof. Professor.
