तालभेदैः

This note as a study of the word तालभेदैः was prompted by a query on 2013/10/22 from my friend Mr. Alexander Zachenyuk. He wrote – 

i forgot what is tAlabheda. devi bhagavata purana canto 6 ch 1

Here is what study I did for the word. –

तालभेदैः – “तालभेद” इति सामासिकं पुंल्लिङ्गि नाम | तस्य तृतीया विभक्तिः बहुवचनं च |

  1. तालस्य भेदः इति तालभेदः (षष्ठी-तत्पुरुषः) |

  2. तालस्य – “ताल” इति पुंल्लिङ्गि नाम | तस्य षष्ठी विभक्तिः एकवचनं च |

    1. तल् एव, अण्

      1. तल् | चु० सेट् उ० (१. ३. ७४)| तल प्रतिष्ठायाम् १०. ८७ |

    2. There are many meanings of ताल In the given context I would like to go with the meaning ‘beat’ i.e. beating rhythm of a musical instrument.

  3. भेदः – “भेद”  इति पुंल्लिङ्गि नाम | तस्य प्रथमा विभक्तिः एकवचनं च |

    1. भिद् घञ्

      1. भिद् | भ्वा० सेट् आ० | ञिमिदा स्नेहने १. ८४४ ||

      2. भिद् | रु० अनिट् उ० | भिदिर् विदारणे ७. २ |

    2. There are many meanings of भेदः In the given context I would like to go with the meaning ‘variety’

  4. तालभेदैः= by variety of musical rhythms

In the clip attached by Mr. Alexander, there is in श्लोकः 52,  the word मूकान्धबधिरस्थितः , which is quite enchanting, especially in continuation of इन्द्रियाणि वशे कृत्वा.

  1. मूकान्धबधिरस्थितः brings to mind

    1. 3 monkey-figures, of whom Mahatma Gandhi is said to have been very fond of.

    2. This मूकान्धबधिरस्थितः also summarizes अथर्व-शान्ति-मन्त्र “ॐ भद्रं कर्णेभिः श्रुणुयाम देवाः | ॐ भद्रं पश्येमाक्षभिर्यजत्राः | … “
