This piece is a musical expression of the process of meditating on a mantra. Although the mantra – a three note repeated theme - is continuous (with a distracting theme disrupting the meditative pace at certain points) the varying harmonic colors help describe the various moods and shadings of mental thought that unfolds as the meditation progresses. Beginning with a deep meditative pulse and ending with the jubilation of being released from the world of the body, enlightenment is achieved.
