His Holiness Sri Ganapati Sachchidananda Swamiji has been a leading light in the propagation and formulation of Healing Music for Therapy purposes. Sri Swamiji's music is soothing, relaxing and yet amazingly articulate and complex. Pujya Sri Swamiji is credited as one of the foremost composer of Bhajans and complex musical compositions.

Thousands of devotees participated in this concert held in Nada Mantapa at Avadhoota Datta Peetham, Mysore on the occasion of the 10th Anniversary of Nada Mantapa, 66th Birthday Celebrations of Pujya Sri Swamiji & the 9th Brahmotsavam of Sri Datta Venkateshwara Temple. They listened to the sublime music of Sri Swamiji. The main rendition was “Nada Mantapa Raga Sagara” comprising of five Ragas: Abhogi, Veenadharini, Hamsanandi, Neela and Shubhapantuvarali.

The soul-touching vibrations emanating from Sri Swamiji’s synthesizer left the audience completely absorbed in peace, tranquility and bliss of the Self. The esoteric nature of the music and its truly meaningful universality is being presented in this video album.

NADA MANTAPA

The wonderful auditorium which seats 4000 persons has many features. They are:

At the entrance, statue of well known musicians of Indian mythology and history welcome the guest to enter the divine hall of music.

As you enter, to the far left of the auditorium is the world’s only “SAPTA SWARA TEMPLE” – a shrine dedicated to the seven notes of music. Each note is represented by a stone pillar on which sits the idol, the presiding deity of that note. When each pillar is struck, it sounds the sound of that particular note.

The back of the auditorium has large portraits of famous composers from across the globe. When their composition is either sung or played on the stage, the portraits of that composer is lit to signify the offering by the artist.

There are 22 Tanpuras (large drone instrument) adorning the auditorium. It signifies the 22 Shrutis (pitches) of Indian classical music.

There are also paintings of various birds and animals whose sounds have special mention in our classics.

The stage is large enough to accommodate even Phil-harmonic orchestras and ballet dance.

The hall is shaped in the style of palm frond. This signifies the soothing and melodious sound produced by fanning of a palm frond by Hanuman to Lord Rama in the Ramayana.

Thousands of hours of music, prayers, dance, and meditation have taken place in this sacred hall.
