Bhagavan Ramana’s grace brought the Ramananjali leader Smt. Sulochana Natarajan in a very special musical family in order to be an instrument in spreading Ramana Music. All the intense training in Carnatic Classical Music in her early years and the total exposure to the same was to fructify in the full unique formation of Ramana Sangeetham.

Her first Guru in Ramana Music was Manavasi Ramaswamy Iyer who spotted her at Sri Ramanasramam, Tiruvannamalai in front of the sanctum sanctorum of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi five decades back in 1956 and taught her ‘Ariyataramamo’ first and then his special miracle song ‘SARANAGATI’.  Click here for the song
Manavasi Ramaswamy Iyer one of the important composers of songs on Ramana is actually the Ramana Sangeetha Pitamaha as he was the first one to compose songs with tune on Ramana.

The contribution of Sri A.R. Natarajan in encouraging his wife in singing Ramana Music from then on, is immeasurable.
