DOCTRINE OF KARMA

 
The law of causation or that of karma includes the law that the like produces the like, or that every action must be followed by a reaction of a similar nature.

But there are many ways by which we can escape from the chain of this law and Karma Yoga is one of those ways.

In this book an attempt has been made to trace the origin and development of violin as a musical instrument throughout the world. The books seeks to establish that the violin originates in India  a primitive from in the hands of Ravana, the mighty king of Sri Lanka (Ceylon). It was then known as ravanastram or dhanuryantram. The author sketches, in the limited compass of the book, a long history of the journey of the instrument covering an equally long period of cross – cultural perspective.
