A Beautiful Anchor of The Soul

Written by Gede Prama

A number of friends were deeply touched last night after watching Guruji’s FB live regarding “A Beautiful Anchor of the Soul”. Let us refresh our memories on that subject. People outside all will come and go. The only person who will never comes and never goes, and you continue to meet him/her from your early childhood until the rest of your life is you, your ownself. For that reason, take a good care of yourself so that your soul is also cared for. And music is one of the way to do it.

For the beginners, anytime there are symbols of joy, quickly sing a song that make the joy inside connected with the joy outside. For example, when we see a butterfly as a symbol of joy outside, quickly sing the song “Oh cute butterfly, where are you flying …”.(Indonesia’s nursery rhyme). If you see a star at night, sing the song “Look at the sky full of stars studded …”.

That is what we meant by song as an anchor that connects the soul with the beach of joy. For close friends who have been subjected to deep initiation, already profoundly practicising Namaskara, find the soul’s most beautiful song called silence. Listen to the pause (silence) between the two sounds. When a noisy environment is full of noise, this technique helps to reduce the tension from any disturbing noise.

See the boisterous sound as an opening door to meet the ultimate silence. After this boisterous voice passes, usually we will feel a very deep silence. Unite yourself with this deep silence . It is a personal encounter with God as silence. Balinese elders call it Hyang Embang (The Ultimate Silence).

In the West the most beautiful music of the soul is called the naked voice. The most beautiful sound that has ever existed in this world. Repeating the story on FB live last night, the Himba tribes in Namibia Africa have a sacred book that said: “Every soul born on earth carries a unique song”. He who finds his unique song to sing, will easily blooms into a beautiful soul. Practice naked voice, it is a fast way to find the unique songs inside.

About the author

Gede Prama

Gede Prama started his spiritual journey through a dialogue with his symbolic Guru in a village at the north of Bali. The journey is then being enriched with his experiences of studying abroad, his meetings with the world greatest spiritual Gurus: His Holiness Dalai Lama, The Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh, as well as Professor Karen Armstrong; and also being deepened by his intense meditation practices.

Despite the fact that he was once a CEO of a large corporation with thousand of employees, and was traveling abroad frequently for the purpose of teaching, yet, being deeply moved by the Bali bombing incident in 2002, he then decided to leave everything and went back to his home island.
He has never leave Bali for the past few years. In fact, he rarely leaves the silence of the forest where he lives, except for the purpose of teaching at the sacred sites within Bali.
