Re: Sweet Violin Was: Pentacost Mini Celebrations in Mondsee, Austria
- Dear Suchana, I really enjoyed the happy smiles, especially those of a young boy in the orchestra. There are plenty of talented kids and other people out there in the world. I am glad only rarely do I get lost watching some of the videos on the internet.
Three videos though are still sticking in my mind:
Susan Boyle in Britains Got Talent with singing "I Dreamed A Dream"
Homeless Boy Steals The Talent Show
North Korean Girl Guitarrist, still in Kindergarten
We are fortunate to have Dundubhi in our centre in Zurich. She plays the violin perfectly - soulfully and sweetly. I so much love it. I was told that Guru once made a comment on her violin playing. He said (paraphrasing) that her soul would dance on the strings while she is playing. What a talent!
You can listen to some CDs here:
I especially like track 5.
See you soon? I hope so! :-)
- Hello dear Doris!
I do remember how beautifully sang Susan Boyle last year or the year before just because she became very famous overnight. But unlike you, I have no time to watch videos on the internet so often and not even know whether she is still singing.
I like your story about Guru´s comment on Dundubhi´s performances. I just feel so much oneness and peace each time I can see her playing on her violins; how happy we would be just to see her soul dancing on the strings as Guru did! Maybe the soul-fragrance plays an important role in the Master´s words as well.
Today as I was working on a short translation as I was listening to some poetry recited by Guru himself in www.radiosrichinmoy.org
I could feel it like a chanting, the eternal chanting of a roaring lion and a sweet bird at once. Sometimes his voice embodies hundred voices in only one voice; this is something unique and full of powerful hope for a no native English speaking listener like me. How lucky we are to enjoy those living recordings every day!
Happiest days! :-)
- So nice you know Susan. I very much like her personality.
I am very impressed about your ability to hear a hundred voices in Guru's singing. In an interview Guru once said, indeed, that a particular, famous musician once noticed exactly what you feel. That is really something.
