Real music helps you to transcend your biology, your physiology, your psychology. Real music takes you to the world of the beyond — what Buddha calls the farther shore, even beyond the beyond.
And that’s my function here: to create a Buddhafield, a commune where all kinds of devices are used. But the purpose is one, the purpose is single, one-pointed. All these paths are leading you to the same goal–to your own inner being.
You have come to the right place. I am not a teacher of music because I don’t teach you the technique of music, but I am certainly the Master of the inner music. I have heard it and I can help you to hear it– not only to hear it but to be it. And to be it is to be for the first time. To be it is to be reborn. To be it is to know what bliss is and benediction is. Music grows in sharing.
Old mystics have used music to convey their experience for example Kabir, Meera, Nanak; they will not discuss, they will not talk with you. They will simply play some instrument, sing a song… Meera… it was the overflowing love of no-mind. It was meditation flowing in song, in dance.
“…I am in tremendous love with life, hence I teach celebration. Everything has to be celebrated, everything has to lived, loved. To me nothing is mundane and nothing is scared. To me all is sacred, from the lowest rung of ladder to the highest rung. It is the same ladder; from the body to the soul, from the physical to spiritual, from sex to samadhi. Every thing is divine…”
“…I teach dance, I teach music, I teach poetry, because these are the pillars of the temple of celebration…”
“…Celebration is a totally different dimension. When you celebrate, you celebrate all, you don’t divide. For a celebrator, prayer is as beautiful as drinking tea. Tea is not profane and prayer is not separate; all is one. The church, the temple, the mosque and the pub all are one. Making love to a woman or a man or praying to a god is same…”
“…Celebration does not divide. It unites, it brings things together; it creates a togetherness in the world. The duality disappears and there is unity, and with unity there is joy because there cannot be any conflict. There is no struggle, nothing has to be overcome. All is overcome in the celebration itself…”
