Within the fine arts, music and sculpture have an interdependent relationship because of the various religions, cultures, festivals, and traditional practices, that have been existing since ancient times. As a result, varieties of musical instruments can be seen in some of the sculptural works such as metal, stone, and wood sculptures that the ancestors carved out and installed in the various temple courtyards. The main purpose of this article is to interpret and analyze, only the string instruments (<em>Tantri V</em> <em>dya</em>), that have been carved in Nepali sculptures. To solve the query, some temple areas in the Kathmandu Valley have been visited to find out the sculptures carved along with musical instruments. From the study, it has been found that some <em>tantri v</em> <em>dya</em>, such as <em>veena</em> and other string instruments which are played using the bow, were seen played by various religious and mythological characters. Likewise, the instrument playing style and posture were also found in many manners. The present study is more focused on only the string instruments in sculptures rather than their historical background. Thus, future researchers will be get precise guide to study about others musical instruments too.&nbsp; Although the research is carried out within a limited time and area, the present paper appears to be relevant and fruitful for all the readers.</p> Parsuram Poudel Copyright (c) 2022 Lalitkala Campus, Bhotahity, Kathmandu, Nepal 2022-12-31 2022-12-31 4 1 1 11 10.3126/jfac.v4i1.51734 Philosophy in Art Research https://nepjol.info/index.php/jfac/article/view/51743 <p>Philosophy is the exploration, quest or search of truth, essence, idea or a thing that has certain value. In art research, there is a question, and we search for the answer. The answer is the essence. Ontology is the study of essence or existence. There is a method to find the truth or essence. Epistemology is the study of method or way of finding truth. What is the use or value of the truth to the researcher and the society? Does it teach or help us in our life? Does it provide us beauty and pleasure? Axiology is the study of the value of the research. There is a problem in a research area. We search for the solution of the problem. We have a method of solving the problem. The solution has certain impact on the society. The research area is explored from certain perspective. This article attempts to clarify the connection of philosophy and research methodology in the research of arts and humanities. &nbsp;&nbsp;</p> Yam Prasad Sharma Copyright (c) 2022 Lalitkala Campus, Bhotahity, Kathmandu, Nepal 2022-12-31 2022-12-31 4 1 12 17 10.3126/jfac.v4i1.51743 Aestheticism in Uttam Nepali’s Abstract Works https://nepjol.info/index.php/jfac/article/view/51758 <p>The aim of this paper is to explore aesthetic beauty in abstract paintings of Uttam Nepali. The available researches had only found out that he was an abstract painter and painted his feelings and emotions. This article argues that forms and colors he created are for the sake of their beauty. The art forms provide aesthetic pleasure to the viewers. The abstract paintings are analyzed and interpreted in qualitative method. The article focuses that Nepali created the structure of colors and lines by proper arrangements which increases the aesthetic qualities of abstract works and has no any utility purpose. It concludes that the value of Uttam Nepali’s abstract art in the development of Nepali contemporary art is only because of his individual aesthetic form.</p> Jasmine Rajbhandari Copyright (c) 2022 Lalitkala Campus, Bhotahity, Kathmandu, Nepal 2022-12-31 2022-12-31 4 1 18 27 10.3126/jfac.v4i1.51758 धार्मिक कार्यक्रम एवं श्रीमद्भागत पुराणमा सङ्गीत- एक अध्ययन https://nepjol.info/index.php/jfac/article/view/51759 <p>धर्मसँग सम्बन्धित कार्यक्रम नै धार्मिक कार्यक्रम भन्ने गरिन्छ । धार्मिक प्रकृतिका विभिन्न कार्यक्रम संसारका विभिन्न स्थानमा आस्था अनुसार आयोजना गर्ने प्रचलन रहेको छ । प्रस्तुत लेखमा धार्मिक एवम् नेपालमा श्रीमद्भागवत महापुराणको सप्ताह कार्यक्रममा हुने सङ्गीतका साथै त्यस विषयका कलाकारहरूको चर्चा गरिने छ । वैदिक धर्ममा आस्थावान् समूहद्वारा धार्मिक कार्यक्रम अन्तर्गत श्रीमद्भागवत पुराणको साप्ताहिक आयोजना प्राचीनकालदेखि नै हुने गरेको इतिहास छ । वर्तमान परिप्रेक्ष्यमा नेपालमा श्रीमद्भागवत कथाको आयोजनामा सङ्गीतको अपरिहार्यता प्रष्ट देख्न सकिन्छ । नेपालमा आयोजना गरिने धार्मिक एवम् श्रीमद्भागवत सप्ताह कार्यक्रममा सङ्गीत अन्तर्गत अनुबन्धित कलाकारद्वारा गायन एवम् वादन अन्तर्गत बाँसुरी, बेला, सितार, मादल, ढोलकका साथै तबलाको प्रयोग हुने गर्दछ । विभिन्न स्थानमा आयोजना हुने श्रीमद्भागवत कथामा लोक एवम् शास्त्रीय दुवै शैलीका सङ्गीत श्रवणगर्न सकिन्छ । सङ्गीत सिकेर भविष्यमा के गर्न सक्छौ भन्ने जमातलाई यस लेखबाट सङ्गीत प्रयोग हुने विभिन्न आयामहरू मध्येको एक आयामका बारेमा ज्ञान प्राप्त हुनेछ । जसबाट सङ्गीत सिक्ने चाहना भएका नवपुस्ताहरूको उत्साहमा वृद्धि आउने छ । नेपालमा सङ्गीतमय श्रीमद्भागवतको प्रचलन रहेको भएता पनि यस प्रकारको लेख जानकारीमा नभेटिएको हुनाले एउटा प्रयास गरिएको हो । प्राथमिक (सम्बन्धित कथावाचक एवम् कलाकारहरूसँग गरिएको छलफल), द्वितीयक ( विभिन्न लेख, पत्रिकाहरु, ग्रन्थहरू) एवम् अनुभवका आधारमा गुणात्मक विधिको सहयोगमा लेख तयार गरिएको छ ।</p> वेङ्कटीश ढकाल Copyright (c) 2022 Lalitkala Campus, Bhotahity, Kathmandu, Nepal 2022-12-31 2022-12-31 4 1 28 36 10.3126/jfac.v4i1.51759 सङ्गीतमा नादानुसन्धान https://nepjol.info/index.php/jfac/article/view/51760 <p>नादलाई साक्षात् ब्रह्मस्वरूप मानेको हुनाले सम्पूर्ण जगत नै नादको अधीनमा रहेको मानिन्छ । यहि नादको साधना वा माध्यमले ब्रह्म प्राप्ति अथवा अभिष्ट लक्ष्यको साक्षात्कार गर्नको लागि गरिने खोजलाई नादानुसन्धान भनिएको छ । सङ्गीतमा प्रयोग हुने ध्वनिलाई पनि नाद भनिएको छ । त्यसैले सङ्गीत सृजनाको आधार पनि नाद नै रहेको मान्न सकिन्छ । आहत र अनाहत गरी २ नादमा ब्रह्म साक्षात्कार गराउने नाद र लौकिक ख्याति प्राप्ति गराउने नादको उत्पत्ति, भेद, स्वरूप, लक्षण र महत्व लगायतका विषयमा स्पष्टता हासिल गर्नु नै यस अध्ययनको उद्देश्य रहेको छ । यसका लागि सङ्गीत एवं वैदिक वाङ्मयमा दिइएका तथ्य र प्रमाणहरूका आधारमा गुणात्मक विधिद्वारा व्याख्या तथा विश्लेषण गरी सुक्ष्मताले नियाल्ने र त्यसलाई उजागर गर्ने लक्ष्य राखिएको छ । ब्रह्म प्राप्ति अथवा मोक्षमार्गमा जान चाहनेले आहतको तुलनामा अनाहत नादको उपासना धेरै गर्ने गरेको र यसलाई मुक्तिदायक नाद मानेको पाइयो भने संसारको विलासिता र अनेक लौकिक इच्छा पूर्तिको कामना गर्नेहरूले केवल आहत नाद अर्थात् रक्तिदायक नादको साधना गर्ने गरेको पाइएको छ । साथै अनाहत नादको व्यवहारिक सङ्गीतसंग कुनै सम्वन्ध नरहेको भनिए तापनि अत्यन्त चञ्चल मन उपास्यब्रह्ममा स्थिर गर्न आहतनादले पनि ठुलो भूमिका निर्वहन गरेको हुन्छ भन्ने अध्ययनले देखाएको छ । नादानुसन्धानको विषयमा अध्ययन गर्न चाहनेहरूलाई यस अध्ययनको परिणामले ज्ञान अभिबृद्धि गर्नुको साथै शास्त्र प्रमाणित निश्चित मार्ग प्रशस्त गर्ने छ भन्ने अपेक्षा गरिएको छ ।</p> शिवराज पौडेल Copyright (c) 2022 Lalitkala Campus, Bhotahity, Kathmandu, Nepal 2022-12-31 2022-12-31 4 1 37 45 10.3126/jfac.v4i1.51760
