Abstract: The present attempt to examine the category of devotional music in reality forms pan of a larger inquiry. From the spiritual aspect of the human personality three qualities-religiosity, mysticism and devotion-relate to music. They indicate overlapping but progressively narrower areas of music spiritual relationship. India proves a happy ground to investigate into the three relationships as it enjoys multiplicity of both religion and music. In addition Indian musics and religions enjoy long traditions. The linguistic plurality only adds to the fascination of the task of examining spiritual-musical expressions.
