DISCOVER THE HEART AND ART OF RAGA
A Free Video Event With Rishima Bahadoorsingh
The ancient Indian art of Raga is a spiritual practice in musical form. Drawing on her unique Indo-Trinidadian roots and years of study in Indian classical music, Rishima Bahadoorsingh will guide students through an exploration of the basic musical and spiritual principles of Raga. These principles and practices can be a gateway to the realization of profound beauty, serenity and divine awareness in our lives.
Verses on musical sciences such as Raga and mantra chanting are recorded in the Vedas (1500 BCE – 500 BCE), the oldest Hindu scriptures. The chanting of mantras and hymns from the Rig Veda and music from the Sama Veda was practiced by yogis, sadhus and the local community. Raga is considered a form of Nada Yoga—the Yoga of Sound.
The word Yoga means “Union,” and by studying Nada Yoga, we learn to use sound to achieve a deep sense of unity with nature and the divine.
Poetic themes of devotion, love, humanity, divinity, the natural cycle (seasons) and spiritual concepts are interwoven with Raga (melody) Tala (rhythm) and Bhava (emotion). These have the ability to take singers, musicians and listeners deeper within themselves, to reach states of love, peace and truth.
This video will benefit those who want to deepen their knowledge of the traditional systems related to bhakti, mantra, kirtan and meditation. You do not have to be a musician to benefit, although kirtan leaders, singers and players will fill discover much to anchor and enhance their craft.
About Rishima Bahadoorsingh:
Growing up in two worlds, within an Indian family in Canada, Rishima began singing spiritual Indian songs in the temple traditions of bhajans, kirtan and other devotional styles at a young age. She went on to study classical Raga within the traditional gharana system of instruction, often staying at her guru’s ashram to listen to lectures, sing and engage in spiritual practices. In 2016, she says her world was changed by the discovery of Dhrupad, an ancient, meditative style of Indian classical singing that originated from the Sama Veda. This led her to a deep connection with Nada Yoga—the Yoga of Sound. Her goal as a teacher is to make the intricacies and beauty of classical Raga and traditional bhajans accessible to all, and to spark love within ourselves through sound.
Partial proceeds from Rishima’s lessons and performances go to the school she runs, as Director of the Sol Community Education Society.

What People are Saying…
“I would characterize it as ‘miraculous.’ That a single hour of therapy can take the place of 20 years of therapy. That the power of the mind and body can come together and heal physical ailments. No, this isn’t a miracle. It’s a miracle that human beings have figured out how to do this.”
“I am the therapy-queen! LCT is the power tool version of therapy! I got two to three years’ worth of therapy in four months! It works because when you are in the past life thing or the vision, you are “in” it and you get to do the work you need to do. And (the facilitator) is not guiding you, it’s your higher self. And your higher self knows what to do. That’s why it works – it’s completely beyond ego.”

The Essential Path: Making the Daring Decision to Be Who You Truly Are Our modern era is plagued by increasing alienation―we are seeing an “us against them” world. Everywhere we turn, we find ourselves divided from each other as never before across political, economic, social, and spiritual lines. As humanity is being torn apart right before our eyes―separating many of us from our friends and even our loved ones, from our hopes and dreams, from the natural world, and from so much that gives meaning and value to our lives―people are blaming everyone and everything around them for the collective problems that we have created ourselves. We are turning against each other, rather than to each other, just when we need each other the most.Deep inside you know Who You Truly Are. We all do. It’s not a question of discovering it, it’s a question of claiming it. Being it. And that’s actually easier done than said. We’re all just one decision away from The Essential Path. It’s a path that could change a world that deeply yearns for a new direction.” ― Neale Donald Walsch, author, The Essential Path (2019)
NEALE DONALD WALSCH is the author of the ‘Conversation with God’ Series: ‘Conversations With God (books 1–4)’. These books are said to have redefined the concept of God and shifted spiritual paradigms around the globe. He was on a spiritual and religious quest since his childhood and was known for wisdom that was beyond his years and curiosity that nobody was able to satiate. He went through a turmoil in life and in his restless quest one day he posed a question to god on a piece of paper, writing ‘What does it take to make life work?’. This question started a journey for him that the spiritual world today benefits from. It is said that the god conversed back to him in a soft and kind voice and dictated him answers to his questions, the questions that represent the existential crisis of a modern man. This conversation that went on for weeks led to the publishing of 33 books, which were later translated into 37 languages for the world to profit from it.
Do not miss this unique day of inner growth with one of the great spiritual leaders of our time.
