Râga

Just like Lady Macbeth, our desires can control our reason and carry us far away from ourselves

"Raga" is the word used in Indian classical music to designate a set of notes (five at the minimum) used for creating a melody.

The musicians dip into this sort of tonal framework to compose or to improvise. The ragas are traditionally connected to hours of the day or to the seasons. In the famous "Mahabharata" - one of the two founding books of the Indian culture - this Sanskrit term also means the action of dying or coloring.

Taken then in a figurative sense, it evokes love, beauty, passion or desire.

Like Lady Macbeth, our desires can control our reason and carry us far away from ourselves. But they can also motivate us and make us grow. Do we seek to understand how and why they appear in our minds?

What causes them to appear, what are their sources?
