Bulding the German Esraj - Impossibility surrenders
- Take large doses of faith, huge devotion, a good amount of joy, much
love for the master and unfailable enthusiasm and you too can do
This is anyway what was needed for Harkara and Pramodhan to build the
"German" Esraj that Sri Chinmoy played with much content first in
Australia during the Christmas Trip earlier this year.
Starting from zero with no experience whatsoever and against all odds
- the last challenge was the Australian customs that took away the
skin of the esraj ! - they build this instrument in a little more than
4 months ( In the books they say that the wood alone has to ripen for
10 years ! before you can use it)
The Esraj is now being regularly played by Sri Chinmoy at his home and
during public concerts.
