Tibetan Mantra chanting

In Tibetans monasteries Gyuto and Gyume, Singing Tantras and mantras use of throat singing. Their tradition goes back to a group of Indian masters, the most notable being the yogin Padmasambhava, Who visited the Tibet to VIIIecentury and, more recently, the founder of one of the four streams of Tibetan Buddhism Tsongkapa (1357-1419) who had brought on overtone singing and the style of meditation. He had said it, this type of song from his patron deity, Maha Bhairava who, despite being an incarnation of Bodhisattva compassion (Avalokiteshvara) Had a terrific mind. The central face of Maha Bhairava is an angry buffalo. Even today, the masters of this school compare their singing like the bellowing of a bull.

There are several ways to recite the prayers: the recitation in a lower register with moderate or fast speed on sacred texts, singing with three styles (ta sung with words spoken clearly on a pentatonic scale; gur with a slow tempo used in ceremonies and principal during processions; yang with a very serious voice on vowels producing harmonic effect to communicate with the gods). The Tibetan monks of Gyuto monastery out a bumblebee extremely serious and a harmonic H10 corresponding to the major third above the 3rd octave drone, while the monks of the monastery Gyume produce a drone and serious harmonic equivalent of 12 straight at - above the 3rd octave drone. They say the Gyuto monks chant represents the Fire element and the monks Gyume expresses the element Water. These monks get this effect harmonic singing the vowel O with the mouth elongated and rounded lips.

Heyah Jens, doing my Cheshire Cat thing as usual, just discovered your query 'did i mean coral castle?' and the answer is yep, that's the one. In the Wairarapa region of the north island of new zealand at a place called Carterton a bunch of astronomers built a functional henge, modelled on stonehenge but aligned for the southern stars, and made the discovery that the henge has remarkable accoustic properties. Inside the henge they now regularly have music performances. When i visited it i noticed that when the asronomers were giving lectures you could hear them clearly but not hear them outside the henge. Likewise sounds outside the henge seemed to have trouble penetrating it. Trust all is great for you my friend. Watched the Weeping Camel' last night, such a beautiful film. Cheers :D

Hi Jens,
I'm not too bothered by the messages I receive from OMN, I don't get that many.
By the way, I'm currently working on another CD with overtone music, to be released in a few weeks time. I'll post a message when it's out.
Best, Bernard

Hi Jens,

Unfortunately no web link for the festival yet. But I can tell you that the dates are July 2-4, in Kecscemet, Hungary. Aron Szilagy is organizing. I hope you can join us!

I would also love to hear more about your travels with Hosoo (is he on tour?) and the David Hykes retreat. Sounds like a great summer!

Thanks Jens. Hosoo's performance under pressure was tremendous and his sygyt - impressive. I consider what he did to be a very important representation of our art to a wider audience. Thanks again for bring it to my attention.

Best, Dean

Thank you for letting me know of Hosoo's fantastic performance. He did aboslutely brilliantly. Though I did not understand any of the German dialogue I wonder why did they keep morphing his face into a western face? Apart from that his was a monumental performance. Best, Dean
