A Historic Meditation and Healing Concert in Lincoln Center, New York

A historic ‘Meditation and Healing’, concert was conducted by His Holiness Sri Ganapati Sachchidananda Swamiji on July 19, 2008 at the Avery Fisher Hall, Lincoln Center, New York City, where an audience of around 2000 people was spellbound for over two-hours.

Sri Swamiji uniquely tailored this concert to expose the beatitude of all the 12 notes representing the 12 pitches of the gamut including musical scales with quadratonic, pentatonic, hexatonic and heptatonic ragas.

Internationally renowned violinist, composer and conductor Nada Chakravarty, Dr. L. Subramaniam was the guest artist in this special music concert. His soulful and virtuoso playing enriched the musical session.

The musical troupe, accompanying Sri Swamiji, consisted of Jaitra Varanasi (Violin), Shankar Ramesh (Mridangam), and Sumitra (Violin). The concert was performed on the day of Shravana Nakshataram, the ruling astrological star of the day, the star of Lord Vishnu (god of healing).

Pujya Sri Swamiji began the concert with Raga Rushyaketupriya, offering prayer to Lord Ganesh, followed by a vocal recital in Raga Gaanamoorti, "Aghanashana Anaghapriya", asking Lord Dattatreya to bestow His power to kindle compassion in everybody. The first two compositions were followed by a series of five ragas, namely Anagha (new raga composed by Sri Swamiji with four notes), Vaasanti (ancient raga with five notes), Kokilam (a very rare raga - with no popularly known composition - with six notes), Naaganandini (another rare raga composed by Sri Swamiji on Mother Goddess Sakala Hrudeeshwari Sri Mataha with seven notes) and Simhendra Madhyamam (popular and powerful healing raga with seven notes, relating to the five elements of nature such as water, fire, soil, space and air). Later, Sri Swamiji performed Shankarabharanam, an ancient dancing and relaxation tune and ended the concert with the beautiful and soothing Saama Raga.

His Holiness Sri Swamiji stated that “music therapy is powerful because it is combined with ayurveda, psychology, gemenotherapy, mantra, and astrology.”

The Healing Music of His Holiness Sri Swamiji has been very helpful in relieving stress related body discomforts and is being used extensively in medical centers all over the world.
