Guru Jyoti Raga Sagara – The pre-Guru Purnima day concert at Geseke, Germany was a wonderful event. It started at at 7.45 PM. Sri. Dhyani, President of Datta Yoga Centre, Germany inaugurated the concert by lighting the lamp. Sri. Lokesha of Austria offered garland to Sri Swamiji. After the explanation, Pujya Sri Swamiji’s music transported the audience to celestial musical world of divine notes, Ragas, Swaras and rhythm.
Sri Swamiji played Pranava Svarupam (Raga Rushyaketupriya), Guru Padamu (Raga Sri Ranjani), Guru Jyoti Raga Sagara comprising of Ragas, Eeshana, Bhuvaneshvari, Hindola & Kamavardhini. The Bhajan “Jyoti Veligindi” in Kamavardhini was amazingly soothing. Pujya Sri Swamiji showed different shades of the Ragas, different playing techniques which invoked different feelings. The treatment of Bhuvaneshvari Raga was also amazing. This rare Raga was a treat to hear. During Tani Avarthanam, Sri Swamiji with a crystal wand went around the audience.
The 3 hours of concert felt like a timeless space…….
