==స్వరాల అర్ధ వివరణ==
Each shuddha swara (i.e., Sa, Re/Ri, Ga, Ma, Pa, Dha/Da, and Ni) is traditionally held to have originated in the sound of a different animal, and some have additional meanings of their own. Also, each swara is associated with one of the seven [[chakra]]s of the body. Just as the swaras ascend through the [[saptak]], so they are mapped onto the chakras in the body in ascending order. Komal notes are associated with the left side of each chakra; the left channel, [[Nadi (yoga)#Ida, Pingala and Sushumna|Ida Nadi]], is the side of emotion and intuition. Shuddha and tivra notes are associated with the right side; the right channel, [[Nadi (yoga)#Ida, Pingala and Sushumna|Pingala Nadi]], is the side of logic. [[Raga]]s, therefore, have more or less of an effect on a given chakra depending on the notes they contain.
