Mandala Monday – Deva Premal & Miten: The Gayatri Mantra Made Visible

Last Thursday’s TED Talk introduced the concept of cymatics (TED Talk Thursday – Evan Grant: Making sound visible through cymatics). Today I’ve picked out an example of a ancient chant being sung by Deva Premal which has been captured by the science of cymatics. I’m always so intrigued to see sound creating mandalas.

Enjoy!

According to Deva Premal’s Youtube Channel: From the album The Essence by Deva Premal, details here:http://bit.ly/1mjrgHq. The Gayatri Mantra is said to be the oldest and most powerful of mantras, purifying the person chanting it as well as the listener. Now the science of Cymatics reveals the beautiful, transformational patterns that these ancient sounds create when passed through water. As cymatologist Evan Grant notes, “Sound does have form and we have seen that it can affect matter and cause form within matter.”

TED Talk Thursday – Evan Grant: Making sound visible through cymatics

According to ted.com: “Evan Grant demonstrates the science and art of cymatics, a process for making soundwaves visible. Useful for analyzing complex sounds (like dolphin calls), it also makes complex and beautiful designs.”

Enjoy this brief, but very interesting look at sound forming matter, and, for you mandala lovers, you’ll notice these experiments creating patterns by sound are really creating mandalas!

For those of you not familiar with TED Talks here is a brief summery from www.ted.com: “TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with two annual conferences — the TED Conference in Long Beach and Palm Springs each spring, and the TEDGlobal conference in Oxford UK each summer — TED includes the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Project and Open TV Project, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize”
