“If you want to know me, listen to my music.” – Swami Kriyananda
Join Dhuti and newly-formed Ananda Delhi choir, and immerse yourself in uplifting music composed by Swami Kriyananda.
Of all the arts, music is the most immediate because it provides a direct transferal of feeling and experience. All music, in one way or another, opens the door to states of consciousness.
What is Ananda Music?
Ananda Music began in 1964 when Swami Kriyananda was inspired to introduce a new kind of music to the world: music that expresses spiritual aspiration and a desire for a more meaningful way of life. This music is, as its purpose suggests, quite simple, yet beautiful.
Ananda Music has been performed in many countries, and has inspired many thousands of people with a new and more uplifted view of life itself. In some ways, it transcends even the best classical music of our culture, for it offers transcendent meaning, instead of only describing a graceful way of life.
It’s generally understood that music can have a powerful effect on mood and energy. It’s less well known that positive and uplifting music can affect consciousness itself in positive and uplifting ways.
The essence of Ananda music is its ability to lift us out of self-preoccupation and open us up to higher realities. For over thirty years, people across the world have experienced the power of this music to transform states of restlessness or depression into calmness, hope and positive energy. Everyday challenges become, instead, opportunities!
This music satsang will be led by Dhuti Elizabeth Johnson, who has been performing and teaching Ananda Music for 40 years, and was personally trained by Swami Kriyananda.
