There are instances in ancient tradition when birds and animals were charmed by the flute of Krishna, rocks were melted by the song of Orpheus, and the Dipale Raga sung by Tansen lighted all the torches, while he himself was burned by reason of the inner fire his song produced. Even today snakes are charmed by the pungi of the snake-charmers in India. All this shows us how the ancients must have dived into the most mysterious ocean of music.
