Rajen Jani introduces a new term “Saptasvaro’ashtakramah” or the “Saptaka Svara Ashtaka Krama” in Indian Classical Music, to denote an octave format of the seven Svara.
This book is presented in two volumes, which together have a total of 122,498 Svara permutations. Volume 1 contains 53,218 permutations. Volume 2 contains 69,280 permutations. Respective to the volumes, the permutations are without any exact repetition.
