Hamsanandi Raga Sagara – Music for Meditation and Healing concert took place at Hubertus-Saal, Schloss Nymphenburg, Munich, Germany. It started at at 7 PM. Sri. Pavel from Ukraine inaugurated the concert by lighting the lamp. Sri. Lokesha of Austria offered garland to Sri Swamiji.
Sri Swamiji announced that this concert was a personal wish of Sri Swamiji. He remembered His visit to Neuschwanstein Castle in 1993 and felt a connection with King Ludwig’s musical patronage to famous composer Richard Wagner. Sri Swamiji had visited Schloss Nyphenburg then and felt like making music there. A personal wish from 1993 is getting real now – said Sri Swamiji.
Sri Swamiji played Pranava Svarupam (Raga Rushyaketupriya), Raga Ganamurthy (Bhajan – Palaya Govinda), Hamsanandi Raga Sagara comprising of three Ragas -Raga Ahladini (a new tune dedicated to King Ludwig), Raga Khadyota Kanti (a rare Raga), & Raga Hamsanandi (Bhajan-Palaya Mamiha), Raga Madhu Varshini (Relaxing tune) and Raga Sama (Raga Ragini Mangala). The graceful notes that emanated from Pujya Sri Swamiji’s musical genius was all immersive. Everyone was swept in the soothing notes of music. Music is indeed divine nectar.
After the concert, Sri Swamiji received flowers from the audience. Almost everyone queued to meet Sri Swamiji.
