Dheera Shankarabharanam the 29th Melakartha raga belonging to the 5th Chakra - Bana ( mnemonically referred to as Bana – ma ). It is prefixed with the word Dheera to fit into the Katapayadi formula of numbering the melakartha ragas. In many systems of music like that of the Hindusthani system and the Western system, Sankarabharanam is taken as the basic scale. It is equal to the Bilawal thaat of Hindustani Music. It is believed that the seven swaras of Shankarabharanam are representative of the seven ornaments of Shiva.
