Imre Vallyon- Master of Mantras and Meditation7 mai 2007
- Publié sur Amazon.com
This CD is a group recital of 10 Sanskrit chants devoted to the illuminating light of Surya (the divinity of the Sun). It allows the listener to fully participate in chanting with a group. The listener should select one chant at a time, and end the chanting with a quiet session of meditation.
Imre Vallyon's approach to mantra-shastra (the science of chanting) is refreshingly streamlined for the modern world. Traditionally, one chants a single mantra at least 100,000 times in order to tap into its spiritual potential. As one chants, the beads of a mala (prayer beads) are counted for each repetition.
Imre's own essential approach does away with the mala, and forgoes the ordeal of chanting 100,000 times before any results are obtained. Rather, a mantra should only be chanted from 5 to 20 minutes at one sitting. Let the chant emanate from your heart center with as much intentional devotion as possible. The mantra should not be mechanical but heart felt. Do not focus on the meaning of the individual words. Attune yourself instead to the beauty of their melodic sounds. At the end of the chant let go of the mantra and slip deeply into silent meditation, centered at your heart.
See the mantra as a rapid stream of water flowing towards a cliff. As the mantra gains momentum in chanting it will allow you to soar on its wings. When the chanting stops, it is like a river flowing majestically over a cliff as a waterfall cascading into a pool below. This rapid descent into silence allows the soul to be revealed in silent meditation.
Imre does not want the student to fixate on one chant to the exclusion of all others. That is why he has codified thousands of mantras in all the sacred languages (Hebrew, Greek, Arabic, Latin, and especially Sanskrit). The use of the mantra is to disengage the machinations of the mind so that the practitioner can plunge into the depths of meditation immediately after the chant. Entering that silence at the golden moment when the mantra is at its end is the true goal of chanting.
Imre has set all of his mantras to beautiful melodies, creating bhajans (divine songs) out of the seed syllables that make up all mantras. This enhances the emotional response of the chant.
Lastly, Imre has made a great distinction between mantra and prayer. Mantra is a joyous celebration of divinity, and is a song of love towards God without any sense of results. Prayers, especially in the West, do not sing of love to God, but rather makes supplications, requests, and demands of spirit. This is counter-productive to any real spiritual growth.

Bland Hymns15 février 2009

Unfortunately I did not read the reviews before purchasing this CD. I would agree with another reviewer - these chants sound like bland church hymns - nothing remotely close to chants of India. I do, however, recommend 'Chants of India' - by Ravi Shankar, produced by George Harrison.

People who gave a bad review are right in the sense, that these Mantra Chants are not like old stuff from india. Who wants to go back thousands of years in history to be spirituell may do that, but mantras (wether chanted or not) are alive only with fresh energy of the here and now, energized by an guru. Otherwise they carry just the old and mouldy energy of the past. Lots of spiritual seekers search for that, because their consciousness links them back to their past (being spiritual in former Lifes). So nobody of course has to appreciate the melodies on this CD, but there is no question when there is a bit of authentic spiritiual sensitivity in the listener: the energy behind these mantras is from a high spiritual source and it is strong! Enjoy it!
