AND THE SIDDHIES-
meet people who have siddhies for manipulating people, lying as
if telling the truth, back stabbing of guru, using and throwing
people, acting egoistically without thinking of the consequences,
constantly putting down the wife or husband or children, thinking
how to extract from guru and run away, pretending to know all and
talk know all even with out knowing or understanding any thing,
irrational anger (there are many idiots in the world who believe
that wife and kids are perfect and their negative qualities should
not be highlighted), ungratefulness, discontentment , doing little
and calling it hard work- which many call it as marketing strategy,
genius who believes that wisdom comes with age, doing little and
getting maximum calling it as smartness ,saying one thing and doing
other thing ,may be these are the siddhies in kali yuga
when it comes to music the siddihies that are needed are very different.
The following siddhies are needed to be a great musician apart from
the knowledge, philosophy and history of music.
GNANAM- how the sound originates from the astral and transcends
to physical level. This siddhi will be got if one meditates
on the verses of vigyan bhariav tantra. This will help you to
create mantras, yantras etc.
SIDDHIS - proper pronunciation of Sanskrit words. The great
SUBHALAKSHMI had it. She could pronounce any verses with correct

geniuses of the world have it. Some have it for written words.
This ability is singing in music.

moment without waiting for inspiration. Most of the great poets
have this siddhi.

4000 Divya Prabdnam had this sidhi
