The Sankirtana tradition of Manipur is a unique and shastriya tradition created only for devotional service (Bhakti Saadhana) to Shrimad Radha Givindajee according to the directives of Shrimad Bhagavat Puran with the support of Sidha Bhaktas, scholars and royal patronage since Rajarsi Bhagyachandra (1763-1798 AD) adopted Gouriya Vaisnava Sampradaya, the School of Vaisnavism following the line of Shri Krisna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu as the state religion of Manipur. The Sankirtana, synonym of Bramha Yagya (one of the five Mahayagya), performed in the medium of Taal, Songs, Dance and Music to establish the Rupa, Guna, Shakti, Mahima of the God with the Raaga of Taala composed of Dhruva Paada of different sizes of Kaala. So Taala being the soul and spine of Sankirtana, Sankirtana is said to be Taala Pradhana (an invocation infused by rhythm). A brief mention of Sapta Rupa Dhruva as described by the Naatya Veda (419 Sloka of Taala Adhyay) is said to be the basis of seven sequences of Sankirtana as under. “Bramhoktam Sapta Rupamhi Samavetaad vinihsritam, Deiva Aaraadhaanam Punya Maanantam Geeta Vaaditam” Meaning
