We Are Music…

The Vedas are the ancient esoteric teachings of India. They form the foundation of orthodox Hindu philosophy and are at the root of all oriental philosophy.

The Vedic epiphany reveals that the world is the self-sacrifice of the creator God becomes the world An omnipresent intelligence expresses its creative potency through the creation.

In the Vedic revelation, God does not create the world Goddess becomes the world.

Western religion and science offer a deist paradigm. In deist philosophies, God lies outside creation.

The angry and jealous god Jehovah of biblical monotheism, over two thousand years of inquisitions, book and witch burning, purged nature of its inherent revelatory divinity and demanded worship of an abstract philosophical concept as god. The Vedic worldview is profoundly different; here the world is the self-sacrifice of the creator. The world is the immanence of God. All creation is sacred. To know thy Self, is to know God.

Saraswati…aka Vac Devi…personification of the “Mystery of the Holy Word”

Brahma, the creator, is defined as an ever expanding breath of creativity. In this cosmology, everything that moves in creation is the breath of Brahma. The spiraling galaxies of stars, whirling planetary systems, atmospheric rhythms of our Gaia life cycles, and the all pervasive breath that animates all life on earth is a unitary rhythm.

In this ancient paradigm, the universe is a living, breathing, conscious Being. In exactly the same way that the breath of life animates our body the universe is sustained by the breath of Brahma.

How does the breath of life animate our body? How do the rhythms of inspiration and expiration sustain life? What is the mechanism through which respiration enlivens the body? Our Hypothesis is biological resonance.

Prana is the life breath of a living universe. (From Sanskrit roots pra- forth and the verb-root an-to breathe). The body as all of nature and the cosmos is a musical instrument played by the breath of life

The World Is Music:

The vedas reveal that the world is sung into being. The ancient Sanskrit grammarian, Bhartrhari, states in his Vakyapadiya 1.112 Vageva Vishwa Bhuvanani Jajne. The Universe is Birthed by Sound!

An unfathomable intelligence conceives of a goddess who sings the world into creation. The ground state out of which creation emerges is the pranava (from pra-nu, to reverberate) of the primordial Holy Word AUM. Creation is vibrating as an expression of ultimate intelligence, ultimate wisdom, ultimate love in a universal harmony of praise.

Goddess Saraswati Plying the Vina of Creation…

The Goddess Saraswati is the personification of this mystery, the embodiment of an all pervasive divine creative intelligence. Her vehicle is the swan the highest flying bird, which symbolizes the breath of life, the supreme principle in a living creation. The Great Mystery of life and consciousness, is carried on the breath.

Saraswati celestial instrument is the vina, which symbolizes creation. Thus we have Ultimate Intelligence, carried on the breath of life, playing the music of creation.

For millennium musical instruments were often fashioned from the guts and hides of animals. For these guts and hides, resonated most profoundly with the mystery of music and the winds that carried these sounds to the heart and mind.

There is no musical instrument more perfect than the human body. Indeed the human body like all of nature is a musical instrument. The ancients understood this. The ancient sciences of Yang and Yin, Pitta and Kapha, Sulfer and Salt were based on this vibrational knowledge of the primacy of inspiration and expiration, of the breath of life.

The latin word for breath is spiritus. It comes from the same roots as our word spiral. It is spiritus that plays the instrument of nature. As we breathe, the tissue of our bodies is stretched by the act of breathing in a cycle of attunement to nature and the cosmos. On cellular and molecular levels the tissues stretches to modulate it’s musical pitch. As we breathe-in, there is a lengthening of the tissue to the keynote of resonance that, cross culturally and trans-historically, the ancients called the Air element. Thus through attunement to the keynote Air, life force stepped down from the subtle universal elements into the gross material elements of form. Then in quantum fashion the inhalation ballooned the tissue into the radiant keynote and it entrained with the creative potency of the solar Fire element. Next in the cycle of breath is a still-point, where inner and outer forces came into balance at the Earth elemental resonance. Then as the diaphragm descends the tissue contracts into resonance with the lunar keynote of the Water element. Nature is a fabric of ultrasonic resonance, attuned to the keynotes of: Earth, solidity; Water, the fluid medium for life force; Fire, the functioning of creative intelligence; Air the feedback process which is the essence of intelligence; and Ether which modulates sacred space between the subtle universal elements of the cosmos and the material elements of nature.

Micro-clairvoyant image of a “guna”…archetypical molecular field of resonance

The Sanskrit word guna is derived from an Indo-European base gere twirl or wind The gunas describe spiraling vortices of vibrating energy fields.

Breathing is a process of cosmic and natural attunement that sustains life. As we breathe, the lengthening of the tissue, on a molecular level, entrains with the Source or Life Field of Sattva Guna and facilitates a step down of energy from the subtle universal to the gross material elements. Inspiration, modalities the molecular fields into entrainment with the creative potency of the solar resonance of the Fire element as the field leaps in quantum fashion to Rajas Guna. As the diaphragm descends, the field on every level of microcosm entrains with Tamas guna and the centripetal qualities of the Water element. Life is sustained by the breath, through a process of cosmic and natural attunement. Cross culturally and trans-historically the sciences of the ancients was rooted in this understanding of nature and the cosmos as a living breathing conscious being.

All of nature is vibrating in a life giving state of praise, attuned to the voice of the Goddess Saraswati singing the holy word, singing the music of creation. Saraswati means essence of Self. This understanding is a key to understanding the great mystery of life force energy.
