We are glad to share Sri Thyagaraja Kriti "Naada Tanum Anisam Shankaram".
Sri Mahaperiyava has explained in detail about this song as to how from the Five Faces of Lord Shiva the Seven Musical Notes have emerged. Will be glad if any one shares the narration of Mahaperiyava about this song.

Naada Tanum Anisam
Raagam – Chitha Ranajani
Naada Tanum Anisam Sankaram Namaami Me Manasaa Shirasaa
I bow down my head with all my heart to Lord Shankara, the embodiment of divine music.
Modakara Nigamottama Saama Veda Saaram Vaaram Vaaram
Lord Shankara is the quintessence of the celebrated Saama Veda which is the source of eternal joy. I prostrate to him again and again.
The Seven Musical Notes (Sa, Ri, Ga, Ma, Pa, Dha, Nee) Originate from the five faces of Lord Shankara namely (Sadyojaata, Vaama Deva, Tatpurusha, Aghora and Eeshana). Shankara, the destroyer of Yama (the God of Death) and the protector of the pure hearted Thyagaraja revels in the heavenly music that flows from these seven notes.
