The Indian civilization created its own unique sound image, which significantly distinguishes it from other regions of the world. In Sanskrit treatises, the material world was considered as a sounding entity, had a sound nature. Sound was perceived as a specific self-sufficient phenomenon, as a matter that was able to harmonize all the elements of the universe. The sacral understanding of the sound leads to creating of a developed system that regulates time and conditions for the musical performance. For an Indian musician, sound is a complex multidimensional entity that embodies the whole meaning of being.
