Music is a path to reach the divine. Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam with blessings and guidance of HH Pujyashri Shankaracharya Swamigal conducts several programmes to support Classical Music, especially to reach it out to the younger generation. Several eminent Musicians are given the ‘Aasthana Vidwan’ title in recognition of their devotion, and contribution to the field of divine classical music.
His Holiness has recognized the Vidwans especially in the Bhakti Marga with special awards. Pandit Jasraj was given the ‘Aasthana Vidwan’ and ‘Sangeet Sagar Ratna’ by Shankaracharya of Kanchi Kamakoti Peetham. During his visit to Shrimatam, Pandit Jasraj rendered several songs in the presence of His Holiness.
