Building a clear understanding as to where accents fall within the beat so that this system can be the foundation for other concepts or techniques that use the gati/jathi combinations as a reference frame or starting point. Karnatic musicians tend to use the concepts expounded in this chapter by having both layers start in different places and resolve together. This provides much more freedom for using different gati/jathi combinations against one another. In all the examples explained above, if one layer performs a jathi 3 and another a jathi 5, both starting on the same beat, they would have to complete a whole fragment of music of 15 beats in order to meet or resolve together.

2. If the resolution is on the first drutam sam, the starting point would be 3 beats later, because the 1st anga (L3) is 3 beats long. Consequently, the starting point would be the 3rd beat of the tala. Since the tala is 7 beats long, one must count how many beats remain to finish that specific cycle, go through a complete cycle and add the first 3 beats of the tala to resolve on the 1st drutam sam. This is 5+7+3=15 beats. 3. If the device is to finish on the 2nd drutam sam, one should simply add 2 beats to the previous starting point, since the length of the previous anga (first drutam) is 2 beats.
