It is my great pleasure to pen this message on the first anniversary celebrations of the Arka Maha Ganapathy meditation and cultural group which took place on the 21st of October 2011. This group has been successfully organized and takes part in intuitive meditation with complementary music and dance to accompany, also providing educational talks which have been given by Srinivas Arka during the past year, which has been warmly received by devotees from all walks of life.
I have fond memories of my recent performance comprising compositions on Arka Maha Ganapathy organized by the group on the 16th September this year. It was beautifully accompanied by Jalatharan on violin, Balamurugan on Mirdangam and Srinivasan on Morsing. Music is universally regarded as being divine for it liberates us from the profanity of daily life. In this sense the group has achieved enormous success within a short period of time.
I wish to express my deepest gratitude to my dearest colleague and musician Mrs. Priyadarshana, her family, and friends who organize these events with great dignity and devotion.
I am also humbled to learn the CD of chant, I sung and recorded in 21 raagams of Arka Maha Ganapathy has been well received.
I also believe in the modern day life it is more than important to create this very necessary work of spiritual awareness, cultivate positive thoughts and energy for mankind.
