More and more, the sound is converts in the center of it life, a life that, dedicated to the study, the practice and to the teaching of it tradition meditative of India in all their dimensions, assists to the hatching of what always was there, after them teachings of them teachers, of them texts classic, of the sadhana intense: the sound.

In the heart of India the sun rises and goes slowly; Red, it observed along eternities bathed in the glare and in the sound of them turkeys real, in the flight of the ragas and the density of the logging of this ancient musicso ancient that we get lost in the history to find it but that makes us live in the present with a power that we not met before.

Thus, by mediation of this medicine granting of this, observe the movement of the mind appease is completely in the absorption (laya), transmuting the mind (them emotions, them thoughts, them memories, the personality) of form natural, without trauma, without effort (as says the text of the Nātyaṣāstra), in the same way that busy birds passing in this timeless spring continue their flight in the endless sky and disappear in the distance.

Our lives can ravelling is in quotidianity empty and gray, in niches of modernity, in the normality that we crushes, in all that that hidden the greatness of our be, the giant cosmic that are each one of us. And in contrast to this, our asceticism and our delight)Yoga and bhoga), the power really is at our disposal and that exalts us, but which makes it only if we are worthy vehicles for transit, for his descent from the subtle realms to those manifestos in which our members dance every day.

The force, light, joy can return it to us and stay, stay in a life of pleasure and ecstasy. We have experienced multiple times this ecstasy along the different wonders that life has been offering us in this, our incessant research by the paths that humanity has come in pursuit of his enlightenment, but we reached a turning point when, after many approaches, the classical music of India through us.

And for this now and after observing that this treasure is hardly known even in the own India, that in fact, in some of its forms has been on the verge of disappearing, and is so beneficial for the development of humanityWe want to make all the efforts to integrate it into us and share it, thanking them for the support of all those who have been able to listen to and live by and to this art.
