Swami Chaitanya Kabir would like to share with you from his experience of Osho’s Hindi discourses. These evenings are not a language class but an intimate sharing about the Hindi voice of our beloved.
Osho’s Hindi is a hidden realm close to our hearts.
The teaching is not different, but carries the intimacy of his mother tongue.
Join Kabir for three Sunday evenings starting at 6 pm to explore:
Kabir Feb 17th: “Untellable Tale of Love” akath kahani prem ki
Mira Feb 24th: “Mira ties her ankle bells, enters the dance”
pada ghungharu bandh Mira naci re
On this Sunday, my students will offer some songs of Mira, Ma Somadevi will sing,
accompanied by Yosha & Avanti on bansuri flutes.
Urdu Couplets Mar 3rd: from Mulla Nasruddin’s Poetry Collection
Swami Kabir is the author of the Sounds True CD set Divine Singing, Kirtan Chanting in the Devotional Tradition of India. He has translated two books of Osho’s Hindi discourse into English: Enlightenment the Only Revolutionon the song of Ashtavakra and Die O Yogi Dieon the songs of Gorakhnath.
These discussions are free to monthly pass holders and $5.00 for visitors.
Kabir is blessed to participate in many circles of mystic love and offer his music in a variety of awe inspiring worshipful settings. Real education began with culture shock in Beirut, Lebanon: which led to a shift in major from science to ethnomusicology, gradually his central life intention shifted from successful university career to maturing inner transformation. After a 2nd blessed jolt of culture shock in rural India, he was lovingly taken in by music teacher Shri M.K. Bhaskaran and initiated into the mysteries of Goddess Saraswati and her Ragas. He was initiated into meditation through Osho. His tears of love, joy, understanding while hearing Osho’s Hindi led to translating two books, both published by Rebel Press: Die O Yogi Die on songs of Shri Gorakhnath and Enlightenment the Only Revolution on the song of the Vedantin Ashtavakra and the awakening of King Janaka.
Kabir teaches Indian music in Boulder and Denver, with new and traditional methods and music for opening the heart, experiencing perfect harmony, loving our Mother, praising Allah. His life is an offering to Saraswati, Goddess of wisdom, study, music, and poetry. Since 1993, he offers music at the Boulder Nur Ashki Jerrahi Sufi Zikr Ceremony every Thursday: Turkish music in English translation. Kabir leads the Naropa Community Kirtan: Chant and Raga evenings once each month, and several kirtans each year at Shiva Sai Mandir in Denver. His 8 CD Divine Singing Kirtan Chanting in the Devotional Tradition of India was released by Sounds True in December 2006.
