The Peace Palace of Hannover, Germany, recently hosted a beautiful presentation on Gandharva Veda. This was both a special concert and musical educational event, with a large audience that had the opportunity to observe how the atmosphere is changed when the Gandharva musicians are diving into their own Self and stirring Atma to become blissful.
The musicians analysed all the different aspects of the music, as well as various instruments such as the mandolin, the sarod, the sitar, and the most precious instrument—the human voice. They also explained how the different Ragas (melodies) relate to different times of day and seasons of the year.
A famous singer from India who is a specialist in the field of Dhrupad singing gave a graphic and thrilling demonstration that was made into a short movie, of how the sound 'A' (the first syllable of Rk Veda) is truly the basis of all sounds. Of special interest was the illustration of how, through the singer's very refined vocal ability, this universal vibration resonated in different parts of his physiology, producing a range of different effects in the listeners. This recitation of the syllable 'A' was seen as enlivening all aspects of the singer's physiology, resonating in different areas from left to right, up and down; the audience could follow this process by watching the performer as he gestured with his hands to demonstrate how the sound was moving.
The word Dhrupad comes from the words Dhruva meaning polestar, and Pada meaning poetry. Dhrupad is the most ancient field of Gandharva still existing today—it comes from Sama Veda and is a highly appreciated art in India. Dhrupad singers are closest to the original singers of the Veda, which is the flow of the eternal vibration, or sound, of Natural Law that contains within it all the intelligence of creation responsible for the manifestation of the entire universe. Everything in creation is composed of sound, the Gandharvan explained—even our bodies are made of impulses of sound.
This presentation of the Dhrupad singer illustrated many principles: how 'A' resonates in different parts of the body; how 'A' is the fundamental basis of all other sounds; and how all other sounds—all the different vowels and consonants—are actually embedded within 'A' and emerge from 'A'.
As this Dhrupad singer was singing the 'A', some audience members experienced that the entire universe is contained in that one 'A', and that the entire individual human body became the entire universe. Everyone enjoyed this remarkable and delightful presentation illustrating the principles of Maharishi's Vedic Science, that the whole Veda, all branches of modern science, and all activity are contained in that 'A', the source of all knowledge.
