Sound of Silence
Sound of Silence represents the cycle of creation (Brahmacakra) and the acoustic sounds the sadhaka is said to hear in intense concentration as the mind progresses to successively higher inner levels of meditation.
Kirtan ( mantra music) composed in India by Jyoshna, combined with recordings of the ocean, river, and rain-storms, the flute and bells. These are arranged in a sequence which represents the inner sounds heard in ever deepening states of meditation.
