    Wow Ivan,
    what wonderful, beautiful (…too soft a word!!)… what music. It’s a music of life, the rhythm and the dance of life- of movement. of the galaxy’s ethernal dance thru time, the sound of blood rushing through the veins, the sound of earth spinning on it’s axis, the sun, the stars, the winds, the rivers- the pure dance of Shiva.

    I could hear so much of life in that piece- like the sound of my heartbeat that i seldom hear, but which is always there.

    the unstoppable, underlying fundamental dance of creation, yet in perfect rhythm, perfect harmony.

    (just stop me from going on and on…!!) THANKS A ZILLION FOR POSTING!!!!!!!! :-)

    It is always wonderful to hear the Taiko drummers. I have seen them when they have 4 or 5 large drums playing at the same time. It is nice to see the Taiko drummer waiting for the feedback from silence when he finished playing and the tabla player starts to go into bliss. Much Love Jim Atwell

    Thank you, Ivan for this Rumi poem and then the most
    marvelous Taiko drummer and tabla player.
    In one of God’s daily HeavenLetters, God has told us
    that in Her Infinite Silence is the answer to any and every
    question the world has ever asked. And listening to this
    drumming music is very comforting for some reason.
    It must be like getting hugged by Amma, known nowadays as the hugging saint. People will stand for
    hours to feel the profundity of her hug! Have a sublime
    weekend!
