Alles ist da, alles ist gut… – Inspiration von Snatam Kaur

Gewiss ist die Vollkommenheit unerreichbar. Sie hat nur den Sinn, deinen Weg wie ein Stern zu leiten.“
- Antoine de Saint-Exupéry –

Meine lieben Freunde,

Sat Nam! Du hast wie immer die Wahl, du kannst die Meditation perfekt oder eben nicht ganz so mustergültig ausführen. Ich glaube, dass man mehrere Kriterien hat, nach denen man sich innerlich entscheidet, wie man etwas tut oder eben läßt. Eine Rolle spielen Erfahrungen und das Karma, das aus den Taten der vielen Vorleben einer Person resultiert. Und für mich ist das Wichtigste: Es ist alles Gottes Wille … der Wille des göttlichen Lichtes in uns. Wenn es so sein soll, dass du dieses Sadhana in aller Perfektion ausführst, dann wirst du das tun! Und wenn es so sein soll, dass du es diese Meditation nur halb praktizierst, dann wird das dein Weg sein! Und was bedeutet Vollkommenheit? Ist das eine vollkommene Haltung? Eine perfekte innere Einstellung? Ein vollkommen fokussierter Geist? Oder die perfekte Aussprache und Erfahrung der einzelnen Worte? Ich glaube an all diese Details!! In Wirklichkeit überwinden wir während einer Meditation die Konstrukte des Geistes, um den unendlichen Geist zu erfahren: Das ist der Ort, an dem alles möglich ist. Wenn du einfach nur weiter machst, egal was geschieht, dann erlangst du die Erleuchtung. Das behaupten jedenfalls Yogi Bhajan und viele andere erleuchtete Yogis. Ich bin keine Expertin, ich bin wie jede und jeder andere auf dem Wege dorthin. Ich gehe, weil ich dieses Ziel vor Augen habe. Ob ich nun vollkommen bin oder nicht, das liegt nicht in meiner Hand, das liegt in Gottes Hand. Ich werde mein Bestes geben. Und weißt du was? Es ist in mir geschehen…ich bin an diesen unendlichen Ort meines Geistes gelangt…der Ort, an dem es keine Schmerzen mehr gibt und du Gottes Berührung fühlen kannst. Also …ja, ich glaube an all das, was wir praktizieren.

Ich bete für deinen Erfolg. Ich liebe dich sehr. Halte durch!!

Alles Liebe

Snatam

Snatam Kaur was introduced to music and spiritual practice at an early age. Schooled in kirtan, meditation, and Gurmukhi, the Sanskrit-based language of Sikh scriptures from Northern India, the young Snatam Kaur began to develop the devotion and skills that have grown and blossomed into a compelling, profound talent. Snatam Kaur's parents brought her up in the Sikh tradition as taught by Yogi Bhajan. From an early age, she practiced yoga and meditation daily and her mother taught her Gurmukhi. "My mother taught me the alphabet on my way to school every morning," recalls Snatam. Her Sikh community augmented these lessons with instruction in kirtan (devotional chanting). "Through these experiences, I learned the pronunciation," she says, "but also I learned the passion for what I was singing because these gatherings were so spiritual." As a child, Snatam also had training in voice, violin, guitar, and percussion. She obtained a solid foundation in Western classical music while playing violin in an orchestra and giving solo performances. Her many opportunities to use and expand her musical talent in a spiritual setting emphasized for her the connection between her music and spirituality. "I learned about the importance of sound currents from Yogi Bhajan," she says, "but I also had the personal experience of how the energy of these sacred words can have a very real, positive effect." Snatam further explored the power of sound in India. After high school, her love for the Indian musical tradition and for children took her to Miri Piri Academy, a boarding school for children in India. She spent time taking care of the young children, teaching physical education, and providing music for the children's morning and evening chanting. When she returned to the United States, she attended Mills College in Oakland, California, where she obtained a degree in biochemistry, taught yoga classes, and shared her chants with Western audiences. But India called her back. After touring and performing Kirtan in northern India, Snatam settled in Amritsar where she studied music with the accomplished ragi (Indian master of Sikh-style kirtan) Bhai Hari Singh. This was a great honor for her, and particularly meaningful because Singh was the same teacher who had taught her mother when she was just a little girl. Snatam embraced everything that Singh taught her, from the technical aspects of the notes, to the ability to sing with presence and awareness. The lessons took place in Singh's home, where Snatam was welcomed by the entire family--daughters, sons, and grandchildren. While in Amritsar, Snatam lived next door to the Golden Temple, considered the world's holiest Sikh temple. Sacred music resonates from inside the temple from about 2:30 in the morning to midnight every day-sounds created by world-class masters of Sikh kirtan. This enabled Snatam to continually soak in the essence of the Sound Current. Upon returning to the US from India, Snatam began her career as a recording artist with a band called the Peace Family. She served as the band's lead singer and, with two skilled and accomplished musicians - Livtar Singh and GuruGanesha Singh, had her first opportunity to write songs. Two years later she began to develop her own sound and style and embarked on a very fruitful solo career.
