“Om, we contemplate the shining glory of the revered Source, the origin of Earth, Air and the Heavens. May the Supreme Divinity enlighten us to the highest Truth!"

The Gayatri Mantra is an invocation to the life-giving Sun as a symbol for the divine Light of recognition. It opens, clarifies and purifies the heart. As a tightly guarded Arcanum it was traditionally passed on from mouth to ear. Only in the last few decades has it been accessible to everyone

THE GAYATRI MANTRA is one of India’s oldest & most powerful healing mantras!
Following ancient Indo-European roots Mikuskovics Baum devote their 3rd album to the cosmic event of the summer solstice and interpret this sacred Indian mantra with mono- & double-voiced vocals and the acoustics of the Classical & Celtic harp, overtone chants and the ancient Indian instruments “Bansuri" & "Morchang"

-> Digital Album @ Spirit Voyage

Following Indian tradition Mikuskovics Baum repeat the mantra 108 times but divides the traditionally uninterrupted recitation into 3 blocks of 36 passages with each block embedded in 3 repetitions of the primal syllable AUM. The 3 blocks are further divided into 3 loops of 12 passages and each loop is divided again into 4 times 3 with the middle block divided into 3 by 4 mantra passages. The result is a mystic number game with the digits 3 and 4. Three traditionally stands for Spirit, Four for Matter.
The 3 blocks are connected through 2 instrumental improvisations based on a traditional Indian devotional rhythm called Bhajani Theka. Recited that way the mantra follows classical Western European song style using formal mirroring with introduction, climax and conclusion and is also conforming to the stylistics of classical Indian music: alap, raga/taal & conclusion

A beautiful, intensely green landscape
Lovely to the eye

The soil fragrant
The meadow caresses your feet

It supports you because you know it will
Because you sense it as part of yourself
and yourself as part of the greater whole

You walk towards sunrise
Bright colors in the sky
Every breath balm for your body
Each blank line a blessing for your mind
Every lived Now a present to your soul

Nothing clouds the view

Everything feels so delightfully mellow and soft

And yet all is as clear as never before

You know now where the Divine dwells

Within Yourself

The heart of your Being
