Author: By: Yogacharya Dr. Ananda Balayogi Bhavanani and Yogacharini Dr. Sangeeta Laura Biagi
Publisher: Divyananda Creations, 2013
About This Book: This book is a compilation of deep, introspective, inspirational dialogues between Dr. Ananda and Dr. Sangeeta on the “Yoga of Sound”. These trans-cultural interchanges deal with the spiritual and hidden, mystical aspects of music and Yoga such as Nada Yoga: Healing Sounds, The Origin of the Chant, Listening as a Tool for Purification, Guru-Chela, and The Artist as a Humane Being. The title, Saraswati’s Pearls is based on the concept of a sutra, a series of aphorisms set together as pearls on a string. The image of the pearls resonates with the pearl necklace in the hand of the divine muse of music and the fine arts. Each of the dialogues can be appreciated like a pearl, perfect and yet imperfect, whole in itself and yet connected to the others, containing some of the infinite satvic wisdom of the great Goddess Saraswathi. It is a joy, an honor and a humbling privilege to share their shimmering light with you, our dear reader.
