In the wee hours of the morning, the earth was graced with the Red Moon Lunar Eclipse, a time that signals incredible opportunity for radical shifts in the universe! Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, the chanting revolutionary, who was a combined incarnation of Radha and Govinda, was also born on a full moon lunar eclipse. At that time, the residents of West Bengal,India, fearing what they believed to be a sign of inauspiciousness, bathed in the Ganges and chanted the Holy Name of the Beloved all night, their voices choked with emotion. By their chanting they made the night the most auspicious night, the night gave an opening for the descent of the Kirtan Avatar. By grace, Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu was born into all auspiciousness, on what could have been called a night of darkness.
At Mantralogy, we are honored to say that we are welcoming Adam Bauer’s long awaited Shyam Lila, on the morning of the Red Moon. It is an offering and prayer to the Beloved, both Divine masculine and to the Goddess, Shakti. Throughout Adam’s beautifully woven mantras, and Gaura Vani’s stellar production, is the voice of Shyam, carrying his bhakti teachings, which bring remembrance of who we really are. The Red Moon Lunar Eclipse with be at the front of what we hope is the continued turning of all Jivas to Bhakti Yoga, and to the Names of the Beloved again and again.
Like the residents of Navadwip, on that full moon lunar eclipse 500 years ago, I invite all of you to come out en masse, and support this Kirtan revolutionary, our dear Adam Bauer, Purushotamma das.
JAI SRI KRISHNA! RADHEEEEYYYYY SHYAAAAAMMMM!
with love and respect,
