Life Is the Quest for Joy

David Eby
July 4, 2019

Composition by Swami Kriyananda. One melody, with variations, hauntingly describes the human condition: love, hope, aspiration, courage, disappointment, and sorrow all directed toward life’s universal goal: joy. This is a new kind of music: in the tradition of classical music, but not constrained by classical structures. Transcending the emotions and the intellect, it uplifts the mind to a level of inner healing and soul-inspiration.

Performed at Ananda Village in the Temple of Light during Ananda's 50th anniversary celebration.
