Samma Vayama: Right Effort
"Samma Vayama: Right Effort" Music for Mindful Contemplation. These three timed meditation sessions are especially designed for walking, sitting and meditation preparation. This album features the chanting of the Buddhist "Ti-sarana" mantra of Taking Refuge in the Triple Gem of the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha – along with soothing music of Harmonium and Tibetan Singing Bowls. A Sati (mindfulness) bell begins and finishes each session.
The mantra for Taking Refuge in the Triple Gem, "Ti-sarana", forms the basis of "Samma Vayama: Right Effort", and features the chanting of Shantha Sri.
The text of the chant is as follows: "Buddham saranam gacchami, Dhammam saranam gacchami, Sangham saranam gacchami". This is the ancient Pali language for the phrase for taking refuge: "I take refuge in the Buddha, I take refuge in the Dharma, I take refuge in the Sangha”.
The single voice chant is joined by the many voices of the Sangha, giving a feeling of refuge and security to the listener. The listener may chant along with the Sangha if they choose, or simply meditate quietly as they are embraced by the reassuring voices.
The soothing vibrations created by the Tibetan singing bowls help to purify negative influences, increase positive energy and restore harmony and balance. The pure sound resonating from the singing bowls is very powerful in centring the mind and body.
"Samma Vayama" is ideal as a meditation timer – each track contains a Sati (Mindfulness) bell at the beginning and the end. Especially designed for deep devotional immersion meditation, (walking as well as sitting practice) and meditation preparation, it is also useful for yoga, or just as calming background music in restful environments, such as spas, or at home. This track is designed in three version-lengths for individual meditation requirements: 10-minutes, 20-minutes and 30-minutes… or you can play the whole 60-minutes of calming music rhythms.
