Invoke the Masters
Invoke the Masters is the sacred transmission of powerful and potent mantras and meditative energies that have been passed down through an ancient lineage of enlightened Sages, the Siddhars of South India. Accompanied by the didgeridoo, harp, singing bowls, djembe, udu, gongs, flute and other instruments, each track of Turiya Nada's Invoke the Master will take you on a mystical spiritual journey of transformation and ancient joy. About the Siddhar Sages: The Siddhars are enlightened Sages who journey beyond the realms of the limited mind state. They are in the state of higher consciousness that is beyond sleep, dream and wake. It is this divine state called Turiya that they sing and chant and dance in the higher resonance with sublime bliss. Chants by Nandhi: Tapasyogi Kalathi Adiyen Nandhi is a visionary, a yogi, an artist and a musician. He was born and raised in South India. After nearly two decades of rigorous yogic training and meditative practice under the guiding influence of several enlightened masters who are from the lineage of the Siddhars. From them, he learned the secret wisdom of an unbroken lineage of several thousand years of tradition. Nandhi was initiated into advanced yogic practices that are seldom known outside the Siddhar initiate's circle.

Due to the enormous powers, these mantras were meant only for those within the initiate circle. Some of the ancient Siddhar mantras featured on Invoke the Masters are for the first time ever being chanted for all to hear! (Siddhar Rajaswamy meditating in the sacred streams of Nambi Hills) The Inner AUM (In the track One of Siddhi Ganapathy): The Inner Aum is the Goddess energies- the moon breath. Like there is the universe and the black-hole, there exists beyond the AUM that we know- the Inner AUM. The Inner Aum is much like a dolphin that makes the high pitched resonance without breathing out much air. Siddhar Sages utilize the advanced yogic resonance of the Inner OM to as an effective way to calm and harmonize the mind before the inner journey. 'Only when humanity worships the Goddess does humanity ascend', observe the the Siddhars Sages, the mystic yogis of South India who journey beyond enlightenment. Experience the Inner Aum of the Goddess! By listening and experiencing the Inner AUM, in an instant we bring the powerful energy of harmony and unconditional love as a foundation before listening to the rest of the album that is intense. When the awakened Kundalini energy climbs upwards from a foundation that is in harmony, we are able to manifest inside ourselves and in the external realities- all that is in flow with our true potential. Challenge to the Yogis (The track Six of VaSi): Today's yoga in the West especially seems to ignore the rich treasure that is within a yoga practice. Yoga is not about being the most flexible or strong but about transcending the limits of the body and mind to be one with Source through breath. The ancient yogic wisdom of the science of breath is called "Vasi yoga". This secretive yoga teaching is the culmination of all the techniques put together through our yoga practice to reach a place where we have been able to experience the state of higher consciousness beyond the mind and we are able to glide in the realms beyond breath. Nandhi wishes to gift you a painting that has the Vasi mantra for you to sing along. Sing along with the mantra! Have fun! Of course, anyone can achieve the "Vasi" breath! The extended breath is not so much the capacity of the lungs. The deep resonance is energy fields that are guided within through inner joys to be Oneness where breath is absorbed.
