Talaprastara

Anyone who has crossed paths with Erv Wilson will sooner or later will be given a copy of Meru Prastara. So when looking at South Indian meters and stumbling across the term above, I had to take notice. In South India they have a method to figure out all the combinations and permutations, but they do so in a very specific order which when listed in a row one can easily fail to see the pattern. In these two diagrams the subdivisions of 6 and 7 are arranged in a way that i think makes the pattern method clearer.
