His Holiness Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji has been a leading light in the conceptualization and propagation of Music for Meditation & Healing. Sri Swamiji’s music is soothing, relaxing and amazingly articulate. Sri Swamiji completely understands the varying vibrational qualities of the different Ragas – the musical modes of the classical Indian music. During concerts, He creates an ocean of sound, playing music that is at once relaxing and soothing, interspersed with passages that are stimulating and energizing.
Sri Swamiji has been touring the globe for over 25 years popularizing the ancient “Raga Ragini Vidya”. Sri Swamiji’s main instrument is the synthesizer – the Datta Veena as He calls it – which is capable of producing sounds of various instruments. The versatility of the instrument coupled with the genius of Sri Swamiji produces the ultimate musical effect with unusual artistic tapestry.
Just as the colors of the rainbow emerge from white, Ragas emerge out of Nada, the primal sound OM. Colors and pure sounds have immense curative powers. Intense research has yielded the truth to Sri Swamiji that a specific bird of a distinct hue and a soothing chirp, can be associated with of each of the 12 signs of the Zodiac.
Sri Swamiji was inspired by the singing of these birds to compose and play the 12 unique healing melodies, especially suited for each Zodiac sign. The birds have lent their ‘singing’ to these tunes. These health-giving tunes restore balance in the body and mind.
