An advanced study of Mayonic Science reveals that meter, tone and pitch are very important in bringing about a vibrational experience of the language causing an arousal of spiritual bliss in the listener. This concept has to do, in part, with something called Sruti.
Sruti refers to revealed Cosmic or Divine knowledge. In Vaastu music (ancient traditional Indian music), there are 22 points along the octave scale that are called srutis. These are points between the notes of the scale that when held by the musician or sung by the vocalist creates a frequency that promotes the experience of Divine or Cosmic knowledge – in simple words, spiritual bliss and happiness. They are very subtle and refined positions along the scale and can only be properly located by a conscious and experienced musician or well-trained vocalist – a Rishi musician.
For example, these points are often reached by the musician sliding his or her finger along the space between the frets of the sitar or by a vocalist sliding his or her voice along the scale in a facile manner striking very subtle and precise points. In a similar way we could say that there are linguistic srutis – that is inflections in the voice, the gliding of a word over the tongue, certain kinds of rhythms and meters that promote spiritual bliss in the listener.

One thought on “Sruti?”
I haven’t explored much on these 22 notes. I found one interesting site where we can listen these 22 srutis and know more… http://www.22shruti.com/22_shruti_sounds_et_scale_c_safed1.asp
