It is impossible to divorce Indian music from the whole structure of Indian culture and philosophy with which it is interwoven in a number of ways from the earliest times of which we have records.
The idea of music as a divine art implies that music is not considered on its merits alone, but points beyond itself and man to the divine. Thus music can be understood as an invention of divinities or as a general principle of divine creation.
This work presents a vivid account of the philosophy of Indian music in coherent way. Definitely, this will serve the purpose of scholars in the field of history, culture, religion and philosophy, music and fine arts.
