Turiya Nada "Cave of the Siddhars" CD
Deep in the spiritual wilderness of South India, in a cave of the sacred mountain Thiruvannamalai, the sage Ayya has been (and still is) in a state of incredibly deep, powerful meditation.
Consuming nothing more than a glass of milk daily, the sage has dwelled in this cave for over seventeen years.
The state he exists in is called "Turiya"; a form of higher consciousness that transcends the boundaries of our physical world.
Turiya Yoga, a practice where higher forms of knowledge and illuminations are cultivated, is a practice of the Siddhar Sages. These evolved yogis have journeyed on the path of light beyond enlightenment to achieve a state of perfection. They have reached the ultimate goal of yoga, to literally merge with the divine. The sage Ayya has reached this goal--he no longer needs sleep or food, he exists in a passionate union with God.
The first passageway on this mystical journey can be found in the breath, when it resonates with the energy of ancient mantras and vibration bringing in the presence of the Siddhar Sages. This resonance with the divine breath is called "Turiya Nada."
The recording of Turiya Nada - "Cave of the Siddhars" came into being through Nandhi, an initiate of Ayya. Born and raised in TamilNadu, Nandhi was introduced to the path of the Siddhars after being taken through a near death experience by a saint. The album CAVE OF THE SIDDHARS came into being at the request of his guru Ayya, who initiated Nandhi into the path of the Siddhars and mentally communicated to him that to him that he wished for him to share these sacred mantra to the world so that may be guided toward eternal light.
Nandhi chose the didgeridoo as one of the recording's central instruments due to its other-worldly sound, which he feels truly captures the essence of the deep breath of the mantras. According to Nandhi, the pure, primal, undulating magical drone of the didgeridoo makes it "the only instrument that comes close enough to the sounds of meditation." The album employs the splendid didgeridoo playing of Cofe Fiakpui to achieve the blissful results you hear.
Also included is harpist Edwing Sankey, percussionist Christo Pellani and keyboardist Ming Freeman, all of which are on the Siddhar path. The beautiful combination of enchanting instrumentation and ancient, potent mantras makes this recording incredibly useful for meditation, yoga, bodywork, manifestation, healing and simple tranquility ."A testament to its potential- CAVE OF THE SIDDHARS scored between 1000-1250 on Dr David Hawkins' consciousness calibration scale, which computes one's consciousness level through applied kinesiology methods. This is the same level that Christ, Buddha, Krishna and Brahman!
"Turiya Nada 'Cave of the Siddhars' is an album that you cannot simply read about...you need to hear it to understand the power it possesses. It is especially well suited for those times when you have the time and space to totally immerse yourself in its healing energy and absorb all that is being presented." --Music Design Review
