Re: Music, the language of the Soul

Hello Folks,

I've been reading your posts for months without participating.  My 
name is Marilyn.  I've been studying HPB and AAB for years.  I have 
academic degrees in Religious Studies, specializing in South Asian 
philosophy and religion.  

Martin and Frank, thank you for your thoughts and the information 
about relationships between music and theosophy.

Martin --

I've been trying to add music to provide background to Duane 
Carpenter's graphics on this website:
I posted the Dalai Lama chanting for healing on one of the pages 
quoting AAB's 7 ray healing techniques.  I'm preparing to combine 
chants of the Gayatri with symbols and Sanskrit.  

If in the future you'd like to experiment in combining symbols or 
theosophical ideas with music, contact me.  I'd welcome the 
contribution of original sound clips, or ideas about fusing esoteric 
ideographs and sound.  Just something to ponder...
