Pandit Suman Ghosh, having himself received taalim (training and mentoring) in the traditional Gurukul system from some of the leading luminaries of Hindustani Classical music, has always believed that it is his moral responsibility to pass on this treasure, further enriched by his own saadhana. This vision came to fruition with the establishment of the Saadhana Pariwar, the Gurukul, in Houston, Texas (USA) in 2003, where he guides his disciples in their pursuit to explore the unlimited potential of this rich Classical Music tradition.
Showered with infinite blessings from the Supreme, his Gurus and the Grand-Gurus, empowered with the priceless knowledge and insight given by his Gurus and his Parents, and augmented by his painstakingly developed musicianship and skills, Pandit Ghosh works tirelessly to bring out the latent musicality in each of his disciples from 4 to 86, inspiring them to continually strive to understand, imbibe and reflect on his taalim to the deepest level (Saadhana). Although the disciples in this Gurukul do not live with their Guru, they, along with their families & friends, are bound together as a Pariwar (family) around their Guru. The Guru-Shishya relationship in this Pariwar is multi-dimensional. As a true Guru, Pandit Ghosh is concerned, not only with the musical progress of his disciples, but also with their overall well-being.
Pandit Ghosh, and his wife Smt. Shashikala Ghosh (as the Saadhana Pariwar’s beloved Guruma) carry forward the Gurukul system of Hindustani Classical music traditions in its most holistic form. The disciples treasure the loving and caring Guru-gruha (Guru’s home) that they are blessed with, with its spiritually uplifting and peaceful ambiance. Here, disciples experience pearls of their Guruji’s musical wisdom, knowledge and mastery, as also their Guruma’s insightful musical guidelines towards the betterment of their Saadhana.
