Last week I had the pleasure of being commissioned to photograph the Music Ministry staff: David Eby, Jeanne Tschantz and Romesha and Bhagavati Nani. They are the core of a very large group of people who love to sing here at Ananda.
But beyond talent, they play with a purity of heart that helps one to feel the high consciousness that Swami Kriyananda must have felt putting the music to paper. Swamiji said these songs are not his but were given to him and we get to share in his gift and inspiration when we listen to them.
You can hear these wonderful musicians and the World Brotherhood Choir play at many community events including Sunday Service and at The Expanding Light during the many inspiring events held there. There are a number of CDs and MP3s that make the music accessible to everyone.
One of the easiest but very powerful things I can do for myself when experiencing life is listen to Swami’s music and try to live attuned to that higher vibration and inspiration that he brought to us through music.
Our situations or challenges may still be happening but inside there is a more light and a quiet sense of strength and joy.
