People in the land he placed And in Friendship the good life, In destruction a new creation And in kinship lastingness. Music he placed in peotry And for those who sing, grace, Lord Venkata, the exalted one who placed in freedom bliss.

- Muruganar

Ramananjali covers all genres of Indian music. For purposes of easier understanding, those compositions in Ramananajali which are purely in the Karnatik classical tradition and eminently suited to being rendered in a Karnatik classical concert have been classified under ‘Ramana Sangitam’. While the whole body of music is included under the name ‘Ramananjali’, the emphasis here is on those compositions which are in the purely classical genre.

One may wonder ‘Why the special place for Karnatik Classical style in Ramananjali?’

This is a highly systematized music form based on scientific and intuitive understanding of the principles of sound and having Self-Knowledge as its supreme goal. There is a special place for Karnatik Classical style in Ramananjali as the unfathomable grace of Bhagavan Ramana has brought forth the entire gamut of this format in Ramana Sangitam.
