Pt Channulal Mishra

Pt ji, has one of those voices which drive you can crazy any time of the day, his beauty lies in simplifying hindustani classical music. Long live the great tradition of Kashi, and may it produce more gems like, Pt. Kishan maharaj Ustad Bismillah khan and N Rajam.

Listening to Channulalji's benares ki kajri also makes a very pleasurable experience.

Ramana Speaks 2

Talk 86.
The Master gave the true significance of the Christian faith thus:
Christ is the ego.
The Cross is the body.
When the ego is crucified, and it perishes, what survives is the
Absolute Being (God), (cf. “I and my Father are one”) and this
glorious survival is called Resurrection.

[from talks with Ramana Maharishi]

Adjectives are put to their test when one tries to use them for Kumar Gandharv ji.
There is hardly any composition of him you cant like. Sample this, Mangal din aaj by Pt. ji. A masterpiece like all of Kumarji's.

and In a perhaps different way here is another soothing Mangala charan from energetic land of Punjab. The opening is just heavenly. Its like an indic orchestra.
