Toccata in D minor by Bach


2:47 minutes (4.31 MB)

Following up Vivaldi's Allegro (Flute Concerto in G minor 'La Notte'), here is another musical masterpiece that has been inspiring me very much. It is the Toccata in D minor by Bach, composed in 1709.

This piece always reminds me of Guru's organ concerts. With utmost respect to Bach, I hope to be forgiven if I say I appreciate, love and adore Guru's own performances by far, very far.

Vyasa the son of Parsara, after the arrival of his puissant son, continued to dwell there on the Himavat (Himalayas) engaged in teaching his disciples and his son.

All of them had thoroughly mastered the Vedas with their branches. All of them were observant of penances. With joined hands they addressed their preceptor in the following words.

Lion: Sovereignty

Lion: Sovereignty

Lion: Sovereignty

Lion, my lion,
To your stupendous sovereignty
Impotent lives quickly surrender.
Your sovereignty
Has not destroyed your sense of necessity.
You do not roam
Beyond necessity's door.
Therefore
Yours is the golden shore.

From: Animal Kingdom, by Sri Chinmoy

Pangram

A pangram (Greek: pan gramma, "every letter"), or holoalphabetic sentence, is a sentence which uses every letter of the alphabet at least once.

Interesting pangrams are generally short; constructing a sentence that includes the fewest repeat letters possible is a challenging task.


Maitree Express: the train uniting hearts

Sri Chinmoy's only ambition as a child was to become a train ticket collector or an inspector like his father. To have a train promote oneness between India and Bangladesh, what a piece of good news!

India and Bangladesh are divinely meant to be one once again, hopefully sooner rather than later.
