Gayatri Mantra Made Visible

Deva and Miten were curious to see how water would respond to the recording of the Gayatri mantra from The Essence CD. Using the science of Cymatics, this mesmerizing new video is the extraordinary result. As cymatologist Evan Grant notes, “We unveil the substance of things not seen. We see evidence that sound has form and we witness how it effects matter and causes beautiful form within matter."

MESSAGE FROM MITEN

image

Hi friends - Deva and I enjoyed your many comments on our Facebook page regarding the video clip of Cher singing the Gayatri mantra. Thank you all, for sharing your thoughts and insights. This is what makes our sangha so rich and vibrant - to be able to honour each others opinions, views, and feelings - to celebrate the opportunity to give space and hear out our neighbour, and in turn, to be heard.

Personally, I got chills the night we saw the performance, even though it was kind of bizarre. Deva and I were guests of Cher at her concert in Cleveland Ohio, and to witness the wave of bliss as the Gayatri spread its immense healing power over 15,000 souls - wow - it was truly something to behold.

I have no idea if it was spiritually incorrect, as some of you have said.

It very well could be disrespectful to tradition and if it offended anyone, I apologise, but I have to say I have only seen the Gayatri convey love, goodness and inspiration to all who have been blessed to have come into contact with it. My feeling is, it all depends on the intention.

Historically, and traditionally, women are not even supposed to chant the Gayatri, or even have access to it. Imagine if Deva had been denied the right to sing the mantra?...how our lives would be all the poorer for it...

On an emotional level at least, seeing Cher's performance was an awesome moment for Deva and I. Can you imagine how she must have felt, having chanted the mantra as a little girl all though her childhood, and to have re-connected with it in her early twenties and then to have taken it out and shared it with the world? To watch her watching as the Gayatri cast its spell over the arena...I was in tears... And honestly, although Cher was performing it like a rock song, there is no doubt in my mind regarding her sincerity in wanting to share the goodness of the great Gayatri with her vast and adoring audience. Rock on Cher!

While we're on the subject of rock stars, check this beautiful video from Bruce Springsteen - looks like even Bruce is getting into mantras!

See you all down the road.
With love and a hug,
Namaste,

LINKS OF NOTE

The Jouney of Souls

The Journey of Souls by Michael Newton: If you have lost a loved one, or if you are interested in what happens when we die, or if you are simply looking for an interesting uplifting and wonderful book - this is for you! Michael Newton's investigations into what we experience as souls in between lives has helped me immensely to feel even more deeply connected to our beloved friend Shyamdas, after he left his body unexpectedly one year ago. It confirmed that really there is no separation - whether we are enlightened or not, in our physical bodies or not, we are One. I found it very inspiring and can't stop recommending it!

Hope you enjoy it.

With love,
Deva

BEYOND THE BEYOND

image

"Remember always: when a song stops it leaves a certain quality to the atmosphere - of the absence. It is no more the same. The atmosphere has changed completely because the song existed and then the song disappears... now the absence of the song. Watch it - the whole existence is filled by the absence of the song. And it is more beautiful than any song because it is the song of the silence." -Osho
