Sound is the first manifestation of the Absolute. We know nothing about the nature of the Absolute as it exists, except that it is. Brahman or universe is incomprehensible in its transcendent aspect – the nearest approach to it is only by sound which is of the highest level of universe.

Beautiful waves and timeless vibrations, the gongs and other instruments, singing bowls, drums, temple bells, mantras, chanting produce a spectrum of harmonics with a sound envelope and texture that is nonlinear and trans spatial.

Experience the eternal healing sounds that activates your inner healing to integrate your intention and bring balance to body, mind and spirit as you are transported to another level of being.
