I salute the enlightened souls well-versed in music, which they have used as a vehicle for worshipping and realising the Lord. My obeisance to those who are proficient in the SAma VEda which emanated from Lord Shiva, as a musical outpouring. My salutations to the elevated souls who have realized the seven notes, sapta swara, as the divine emanations from OmkAra, the primordial eternal sound, NAda, a facet of the transcendental Godhead, Brahman. My salutations to Lakshmi, PArvati, Saraswati, Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, NArada, Indra, Bharata, KAshyapa, Chandikeshwara, Anjaneya, Subrahmanya, Vighneshwara, Maarkandeya, Agastya, Tumburu, Someshwara, Sarngadeva, Nandi and others who know the secret of the Bliss Supreme BrahmAnanda.
