When Pujya Swamiji is asked 'If Naada is mentioned
anywhere in Ramayana?', Pujya Swamiji explained
following interesting story.

Swearing-in ceremony of Lord Rama was going on. God
Hanuman was serving Lord Rama by waving
'Vinjamara'(instument similar to fan). 'Vinjamara'
waving by Anjanisuta(Hanuman, son of Anjana Devi)
has generated sweet Naada(music). This sweet Naada
reminds Lord Rama of days He spent in Vanas(forests).
Then Lord Rama says:
After visiting Agastya ashrama(home of sage) & Atri
Anasuya ashrama Lord Rama hears sweet music.
At the bottom of a lake which is filled with water
Sapta Rushis(7 great sages) are doing deep
meditation with the help of Jalastambana(ability to
live in water for longer).
God Indra(King of deva loka) fears that Sapta Rushis
are meditating to take away his post/job. He sends
Yaksha, Gandharva, Kinnera, Kimpurusha naada taranga
kanyas(lady musicians) into lake to disturb
Sapta Rushis(7 great sages). They keep singing sweet
music. How much ever sweet Naada Kanya's music is,
Sapta Rishis meditation didn't get disturbed. Pleased
by Sapta Rishi's meditation finally God Brahma
appears and tells Sapta Rishi's He can grant whatever
wish they have. Then Sapta Rishi's say they don't
have any wish and they would like to keep staying in
lake listening to sweet music of 'Naada Kanyas'.
Then God Hanuman says, listening to above story told
by Lord Rama, He will visit that lake while going
back after swearing-in ceremony is completed.
