about

Svaramandala:
A healing sound environment. Experience the Natural State

The vibrations manifested by sound transcend mundane experience. This enlightened energy is designed to put us in touch with our original self, and to experience the Natural State. This CD is an environment. The Elemental Series is designed to access states of consciousness connected to the 5 elements. The specific notes of each of the five Svaramandalas are tuned to the energy of the 5 elements: Fire, Earth, Air, Water, and Space.

Svaramandala allows for high states of consciousness and healing on a deep level. To use these scales for healing, the practitioner can determine which element needs attention and select the appropriate scale. Each scale can either stimulate or pacify an element. One can play the scale of water during rain; to bring rain; while near any body of water; or to balance and equalize the water element within oneself or others. There are no rules for using Svar- amandala; the intuition of the practitioner is the best guide. These sounds
can be used as a background for singing or playing music, or to accompany meditation, contemplation, healing, relaxation or yoga.

The Five Pentatonic Archetypes:

1. Fire Element (Bhupali)
Raga Bhupali is one of the most archetypal scales and is found worldwide. It contains the energy of the Fire element. Starting from C it goes: C, D, E, G, A.

2. Earth Element (Dhani)
Native American, African, Asian and European songs are in this scale. This scale brings the energy of the Earth element. This five note scale is: C, E-flat, F, G, B-flat.

3. Air Element (Durga)
This scale contains the energy of the Air element. Starting from C, this scale goes: C, D, F, G, A.

4. Water Element (Megh)
Megh means cloud and brings the Water element. From C, this scale goes: C, D, F, G, B-flat.

5. Space Element (Malkauns)
The raga Malkauns, also written Malkosh, manifests the energy of Space or Void. From C, this scale would be played: C, E-flat, F, A-flat, B-flat.
