- dear friends,
Today I am inspired by the word "courage".
Sometimes, when I do musical arrangements of Sri Chinmoy's music,
I am looking for one word that inspires me at that particular moment. Before I play the first note, I know the title of the medley/arrangement I will make.
Last night, after our weekly Wednesday night meditation, I was inspired to do music. So I titled it "courage" and started working on it, choosing sounds and songs in intuitive fashion.
So I did one with two melodies, Khama Karo and Sab Abhiman.
It is a very calm, contemplative arrangement. You could literally have a baby sleep to this music.
Here is Sri Chinmoy's translation from Bengali for both songs:
Khama Karo Ei Shesh Bar
Forgive me, forgive me.
This is the last time, forgive me.
I shall offer to You at Your Feet
The garland of Victory.
I am the silent compassion of Your Infinity.
You are the Ocean, I am the tiniest drop.
This is my only identification.
Garden of Love-Light, Part 2 [song #32]
"O Compassionate Supreme,
Do destroy my sulking nature.
To establish Your Victory here on earth,
Let me not suffer from fear.
Give me a dauntless heart.
Your Victory is my victory indeed.
You are the life-breath of my life.
I know, when I fulfil You,
All my desires come to an end
In the twinkling of an eye."
Pole-Star Promise-Light, Part 2 [song #8]
I posted the arrangement on sendspace.com. Here is the download link:
