  • Amazing Santoor Performance by Pt. Bhajan Sopori | SpicMacay IIT Guwahati

    1:37:33

    This Santoor Vadan by Pandit Pandit Bhajan Sopori left us spellbound during the SPIC MACAY Virasat series of IIT Guwahati.
    Bhajan Sopori is the only classical musician to have composed music for over 5000 songs in almost all the languages of the country like Urdu, Kashmiri, Dogri, Hindi, Sanskrit, Bhojpuri, Punjabi, Himachali, Rajasthani, Telegu, Tamil, etc. and also foreign languages like Persian, Arabic.

    In his own words Bhajan Sopori says I am an eighth generation Santoor player in my family. We follow the Sufiyana Gharana. My great-grandfather, Pandit Shankar Pandit has contributed a lot to this kind of instrument (Santoor) music not only in Kashmir but elsewhere also. My father was a superb Sitar player and he gave me a classical knowhow of the instruments. I started playing Sitaar initially but later I fell in love with Santoor.

    His son Abhay Rustum Sopori is also a well known musician and composer.

  • Jai Jai Nirmal Janani Nirmalkauns Shri Mataji Sahasrara Sahaja Yoga

    1:32:27

    Jai Jai Nirmal Janani (NirmalKauns) dedicated to HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi - Pandit Bhajan & Pandit Abhay Sopori (Santoor concert) Sahasrara Day Celebrations 2009

    Pandit Bhajan Sopori, one of top Santoor players in the world has done wonders for the Santoor's reputation. He has added new features to the Santoor such as a Veena element to the Santoor. His son is also shown in this video. His name is Pandit Abhay Sopori. Pandit Bhajan Sopori is playing for Sahaja Yogis in this video. Pandit Abhay Sopori created Raag Nirmalkauns. The tabla player's name is Pundit Sarit Das. This performance with HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi's blessings took place in 2009, for Sahaja Yogis in Italy at Sahasrara Day Concert - May 2nd.

    Pundit Bhajan Sopori Talking About Raag Nirmalkauns:


    Sahasrara Day Concert (May 2nd 2009)

    The Saturday evening highlight was the presence of renowned Indian musician Pandit Bhajan Sapori. The evening commenced by the Indian musicians seeking the blessing of Shri Mataji at Palazzo Doria. The son of Pt. Bhajan offered his composition Raag Nirmalkauns inspired and made for our Divine Mother. The words were beautifully knit in the raag. Sir CP came out to thank the musicians and said that Shri Mataji enjoyed the concert very much. The musicians then proceeded to the hangar to continue the concert, where the yogis had seen the 3 hours long concert transmitted from the Castle.

    Sahasrara Day 2009 (May 5th)

    Today on the 5th of May 2009, the anniversary of the opening of the Sahasrara, we had the blessing of doing Puja to Shri Mataji. Shri Mataji was in a beautiful yellow saree, awaiting the yogis. A short puja ceremony with aarti was performed before the Yogis did namaskaar and joined the yogis in the piazza to meditate. While in meditation, our favored musicians of this blissful weekend, Pt. Bhajan Sapoori played lovely raags for Shri Mataji and the yogis present in the Living Room at the Castle. Throughout the evening, yogis exclaimed that their Sahasraras were never this open before, a true memento of the Paramchaitanya to all. Thank You Shri Mataji for opening the Sahasrara, may we all work hard, as You have, to make the whole world feel its presence.

    Sahasrara Day May 5th (World Realization Day)

    HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi the founder of Sahaja Yoga Meditation opened the Primordial Sahasrara Chakra in Nargol, Maharashtra India (on the Indian Ocean May 5th 1970) for Humanity initiating through grace the process of en-mass Self Realization, Kundalini Awakening.

    I used to think, Why are men doing such a drama and what has happened to them? Why are they doing all this nonsense? But to whom was I to say all these things? I was all alone then. At the time when I arrived here [Nargol, 1970], the only confusion that I had must be done. After coming here, when I saw this rakshasa was mesmerizing people, I realized then if at that time somehow the Sahasrara was not opened, then God knows where these people would ultimately be lead. Moreover, the spell of his influence could not be ignored and also what would have been the fate of his disciples, those who were trying to seek God and the truth?

    Then I decided to stay the night at the seashore. I was all alone and felt very good. There was no one around to say a word. And then in meditation, I felt that the time had arrived when the Sahasrara must be opened. The moment I desired for the opening of the Sahasrara, what I noticed was that the Kundalini rose like a telescope within me, opening one stage after the other, traveling upward -- khat, khat, khat. The colour of it was like the mixture of all the colours of these lamps put together, with which you have decorated. It was like the colour of molten red-hot iron. Then I saw the external structure of the Kundalini that kept on rising up, creating sounds at each chakra. The Kundalini rose up to pierce the Brahmarandhra. Piercing mine was not a big deal, but then I thought it would now become easier in the world. I felt at that moment whatever energy was there above suddenly entered within me like a cool breeze from every direction. It was then I realized that now there was no harm in starting the work. ...

However, the Malav-Kaushik mentioned in classical texts does not appear to be the same as the Malkauns performed today.The raga is believed to have been created by goddess Parvati (the wife of Shiva) to calm Shiva, when the lord Shiva was outraged and was not calming down after Tandav in rage of Sati's sacrifice.
