Om Namah Shivaya

“You experience the integrity of all world languages through the vibration of Sanskrit language
through chanting.”
~ Shri Brahmananda Sarasvati

I absolutely love Sanskrit mantras because they contain so much, each syllable is a world. This mantra is so simple, yet so powerful. It is one of the few that has very few restrictions or rituals. It can be said at any time, aloud or silently.

While it is sometimes difficult to get a direct translation, basically, I bow to the supreme reality (or inner godself). This mantra embodies powerful healing for physical and mental ailments, and for the
healing of the planet. Peace to the heart, joy to the soul, sound therapy to the body, nectar to the Atman or soul.

This track is a brand new version somewhat like I do in sound meditations live with looping.
*best through headphones or good speakers!*

In the graphic I tried to show a few of the major correlations – to the chakras, the senses, and the elements. I changed the
orientation of the words/syllables to better match up with the chakras they relate to.

Another visual study, Connections to the Cosmos, can be found here.

Connections to the Cosmos

I have been working on this poster for a few years. It started as a small sketch that I reworked many times over. It ended up a full blown 14″ x17″ drawing that I have no way to scan at the moment. So I reworked it yet again into digital form. Pretty different, oh well.

I wanted to see all the ways that music connected to the various aspects of creation. There is still some debate as to how specific notes align with chakras etc. but I’m using what I have found at this point in time and am in no way claiming absolute authority here. For me it’s kind of a fun way to embed meaning and aspects into writing something. I hope you enjoy and find something in it for yourself. To be continued.
