Bhagavan is a lover of fine arts and used to listen to songs of Tyagaraja occasionally in evening time.

I suggest reading below article By Sri Atmakuri Govindacharyulu garu.

ఓం  నమో  భగవతే  శ్రీ  రమణాయ   
ప్రశాంత్  జలసూత్రం
ప్రేమే శాశ్వతము

Dear sriswaroop,

Sri Bhagavan appreciated the arts like good conventional music
and little children dancing.  When Dilip Kumar Roy was singing
nicely, Sri Bhagavan enjoyed it and when Dilip asked Sri Bhagavan,
whether such singing would confer liberation, He said, Yes,. provided
you do it sincerely.  When Devaraja Mudaliar later asked whether his
singing of Tiruppugazh, Tayumanavar and Manikkavachagar would
confer liberation for him, Sri Bhagavan said, This path is not for you.

He knows what is suitable for a sadhaka.



Arunachala Siva.

Dear Subramanian ji,

Thank you for the information.

Was aware that Bhagavan appreciated the conventional music and dancing by children. Much interested in the next piece of information- Bhagavan's replies to two persons of different nature and calibre according to the suitability.

I raised the point in the context of Navarathri Festival:

1. Scripts advises to withdraw one's indriyas inwardly, ie, not to release them for free enjoyment of worldly feasts (indulgement);
2. It is also said that the fine arts is divine. It is Saraswathi Aradhana.

Discarding the excess /or/ abuse of either of the above, what should be the right & suitable attitude for a devotee?
The devotee himself has to find it out, am I right?

Hence the question - whether Bhagavan has remarked any thing specifically.

Thank you
