古老的北印度樂理Raga, Tala, Nada, and Yoga的全應用工作坊
Ragas, in the Hindu tradition, are believed to have a natural existence. Artists don't invent them, they only discover them. Music appeals to human beings, according to Hinduism, because they are hidden harmonies of the ultimate creation. Some of its ancient texts such as the Sama Veda (~1000 BCE) are structured entirely to melodic themes, it is sections of Rigveda set to music. The ragas were envisioned by the Hindus as manifestation of the divine, a musical note treated as god or goddess with complex personality.
During the Bhakti movement of Hinduism, dated to about the middle of 1st millennium CE, raga became an integral part of a musical pursuit of spirituality. Bhajan and Kirtan were composed and performed by the early South India pioneers. A Bhajan has a free form devotional composition based on melodic ragas. A Kirtan is a more structured team performance, typically with a call and response musical structure, similar to an intimate conversation. It includes two or more musical instruments,[ and incorporates various ragas such as those associated with Hindu gods Shiva (Bhairava) or Krishna (Hindola).
以上歴史緣由，這次的工作坊特別為瑜伽領域的深入應用做實務性設計，希望延續傳統的科學，注入古時候音樂裡的靈魂，以上午時段10:00-13:00的古典旋律Raga Bhairav作出發，告訴您這旋律的原理背景及故事，讓音樂與身體在該時段的自然機制相應，共振出最佳的生理及靈性運作，在了解Raga Bhairav之後，接下來所有的Raga Bhairav練習都將因了解而變得更有意義了。
在傳統的印度樂理系統中，所使用的音階與西洋系統的Do, Re, Mi, Fa, So, La, Si, Do不同，它是使用Sa, Re, Ga, Ma, Pa, Dha, Ni, Sa， 而這些音皆源自於Om (AUM)宇宙的起始音所演進而生的梵字音，各由不同的梵字音合組而成為Sa, Re, Ga, Ma, Pa, Dha, Ni, Sa，因此就是為什麼單單只唱傳統的音階就會共鳴它背後所組成的梵字所掌管的經脈及脈輪，更何況據經典流傳譜成的旋律，更能與萬物及歴史共鳴，工㐸坊將帶領您實際了解旋律&作詞作曲，愛梵唱的您未來可以自己譜寫梵唱詞曲，向宇宙傳達您的練習心聲，或獻上您的演譯。
"A Raga, meaning in Sanskrit "coloring, tingeling, dyeing", is a melody system from India. Many of Ragas in North India are played at a certain time of the day, according to a certain mood and often with a specific weather. Thus, many different ragas can be played along the day. Ragas follow different music scales, based on the Indian music system, and they focus on specific chakras.
