Music is like weaving beauty out of silence, out of space, out of nowhere, dragon-dancing the ever-shifting instant into swirls and shapes of surprise.
There are old, soulful musicians. Their music has soul and is alive in a way that has a tinge of magic attached to it. By that token, they have been considered to be at least one step closer to the divine. Such a man was Ustad Sabri Khan.
Tara made the promise that whoever sings her praise with her name mantra, will be touched by the light ray of love and compassion and ultimately be at one with her level of realization, true freedom and enlightenment.
My music teacher often has a light, happy mind. At the same time, he is very serious with his music. He doesn’t sleep very much, only 4 or 5 hours at night. Normally this is something that happens to experienced meditators, but in this case, I believe his music has that same effect.
