  5. Ragadhyana
  6. An iconographic presentation of raga-s, probably inspired and influenced by the tantra philosophy. Coupled with shloka-s describing raga-images these iconographic presentations were expected to help performers contemplate in order to effectively render the concerned raga-s. This 'practical' aspect of the phenomenon was, however, soon relegated to the background. The ragadhyana tradition soon merged into the later pictorial tradition of the Ragamala paintings.
