Poems of Master Arnaldo did to Hinduism culture.
FOR THE MASTER MIYAN TANSIM
(Translation and adaptation of a Poem to Miyan Tansin by Master Arnaldo)
He enchanted the world with his intense serene rhythms
His music vibrated in the entire Universe
The birds listened to his songs with intense attention
And learnt with those new melodies
The trees bloomed new leaves and the flowers scented a pleasant fragrance
Nature thanked him for reverberating energy and life
Those listening filled up their hearts with joy and happiness
The entire world awakened their spiritual force
He is Miyan Tansin
The major music that lived on the Earth
And transformed our lives eternally
Smiles… om smiles
Their faces tranquil and their inner feelings calm
Ingenuous and strong people
In continuous labour day by day, year by year, century by century
In meditation position, always working, never giving up
Their lives … their spirituality… fragile… only in appearance
Self-surrender is their priority
Dreams are eternal and truthful
Waiting for better days…
Smiling… smiling …
Believing in their Karmas and Dharmas
Avatars and Gurus, Masters and Babas …Smiling…
In the past, in the present and in the future …Smiling…
The things are!
SYNPHONY TO GANGA
Om Shiva! Om Namah Shivaya!
The Ganga flows in Harmony with the flux of Nature
Bathing arid and inhospitable soils, grounds and lands
Nourishing forms and beings
Centuries and centuries of Ishwarapranidhana (self-surrender)
Purifying the pilgrims with the force of its sacred waters
Integrating matter and spirit
Ganga Mayi! Ganga Mayi!
Enchanting all the beings with its eternal music
Om Ganga Mayi! Om Namah Shivayai!
The cosmic energy flowing in intense and continuous joy and happiness
Om Ganga Mayi! Om Namah Shivaya!
I reverence Ganga, the gentle and lovely River!
TO SACRED SADHUS
Strong and fascinating beings
In continuous process of self knowledge
Observing by itself matter and spirit
In a state of unity, discovered the origin of Yoga
In eternal contentment and self-surrender
Naked, however completely spiritually dressed
Brings for all beings joy to be incarnated
In India, ancient and the nowadays, the practice of Mantras is very common. They are mantralized in many events, not only in the spiritual rituals, but inclusive in parties as wedding or in ceremonies of cremation.
In general, the Hindu people like to chant. It is part of their culture. For example, the Indian movies have always songs and the musical part is the most important to the public. In some movies, the Mantras are present and those film companies use in their ads Mantras as well.
There are different kinds of Mantras.
Kirtans and Bhajans
Some authors affirm that Kirtans are Mantras of the North the India and Bhajans are Mantras chanting in the South. Others autors say that Bhajans are Mantras that have melody and Kirtans don’t have melody and so on.
The mantralization is a very important technique in our Shivam Yoga School.
