Natyasastra titlepageThe author presents a new interpretation of the Natyasastra (the SRUTI system) of ancient India, showing links with a much older system originating in the nuclear Near-East. The ancient text shows an awareness of the Comma scale (associated with pure intonation). Yet it hides the true structure of this scale in a net of confusing and contradictory information. The author concludes that the artificiality of the system was purposefully presented in order to preserve the truth from the uninitiated.
