War.Famine.Ecological Disaster.The Music of Now. No doubt you are all aware of the Troubled Times we live in today.We want the answer to be our cleverness, might,diplomacy but it’s just not enough.We look to our politicians for leadership and they give us none. Bottom line is you cannot leave the Creator out of Creation. We made this album to get as many people to CHANT as possible and it’s worked to a degree. These songs were curated from the writing of saints with an Express Method to get happy and get with it. We are being pushed to the brink now with nowhere to turn but God in His Incarnation in The Holy Name. It’s also why this album is fresh!
harer nama harer nama
harer namaiva kevalam
kalau nasty eva nasty eva
nasty eva gatir anyatha
“In this age of quarrel and hypocrisy the only means of deliverance is chanting of the holy name of Lord Hari. There is no other way. There is no other way. There is no other way.” (Brhad Naradiya Purana)
Our understanding is that music is meant to have meaning and relevance to life providing comfort, shelter, courage, inspiration and meditation. It’s why we made Yoga on the Dance Floor and we hope you share it’s message and power on the dance floor, your yoga studio, your homes and your precious heart. We wish you all a Happy Labor Day Weekend! NEWS that there is NO Monday Night Yoga Class September 2. We resume with Loren Russo September 9th. Conneticut and Miami Appearances in the works. Stay tuned
Love and Light

Ekayani here. Lately I have been going to Nublu every Sunday to absorb the lessons by the late Butch Morris. His spirit lives there and has been captured on film in two wonderful documents of the Great Listener at work. The first filmed in 2007 at the Skopje Jazz Festival with the NuBlu Orchestra offers 3 sets of the most fascinating free style conduction and on the spot composition. The second film Black February, includes some performance and more importantly lets Butch speak for himself about the conclusions or need he arrived at to get the members the orchestra to really reconnect with themselves in sound very personally spontaneously while being put on the spot literally. Don’t Think. Feel. Hear Listen and Play with Others as in a All The Classcical Training You’ve Ever Had Leads to This and It Don’t Mean a Damn If You Can’t Be Present 1000%. Like the conductor in Disney’s Fantasia, Butch’s way was magical to witness. I love the way he runs the wand up and upside down,from right to left and left to right splitting open the conduction system for all to see,feel,hear. What will happen next? Nobody knows not the musicians not even the conductor. As one musician said Butch brought out the “New American Orchetra” and we’d look back on this time as a coming forth of revelatory music as jazz was before. I encourage lovers of music searching for a lesson in music with a thirst for BEING to catch these screenings while you can. 8PM is show time and what’s more it’s FREE. 44 Years of Butch’s Life Work if not more Free? Lord RUN to see these! The next question I have is can I buy copies? Amen.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog. We like to think of them as being representatives of Sri Hanuman! We had visitors from 70 countries stopping by to read topics concerning Bhakti Yoga in America or at least in New York City from our vantage point.Yamuna Devi’s life and passing was a top read and that should not be surprising considering the depth and breadth of her devotiont Read more below and thanks for staying with us as we travel through 2013. And thanks to wordpress for putting this together.

The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner can carry about 250 passengers. This blog was viewed about 1,700 times in 2012. If it were a Dreamliner, it would take about 7 trips to carry that many people.
