Pandit Sharda Sahai-Vishnu Sahai/Gurukul (2005)
About this album
The concept of Gurukul lies at the heart of the tradition of North Indian Classical music. It embodies the living and learning relationship between teacher and pupil, signifying the complete emotional, intellectual and spiritual surrender of the aspiring disciple (shishya) to the guru. 'Gu' means dark and 'Ru' means light, the 'Guru' being the one who leads from darkness to light. Guru is a teacher of life or a spiritual mentor who leads the shishya from ignorance to wisdom and enlightenment. 'Kul' (lit. house) refers to the home of the Guru where, the disciple resides until the rigorous learning process is complete.
