Meditation CD Ashta Prahar

Ashta Prahar

In Hindu belief, time is a cyclical rather than linear concept. The day is divided into eight sections of three hours each, known as ‘paher’ in Hindi or ‘prahar’ in Sanskrit. The raag system of North Indian classical music is also inextricably linked to these time observances.

This album follows the sun on its apparent journey through the day, pausing at each vital section to interpret its beauty and its spiritual significance through a revelant Vedic Shlok in Sanskrit. The Shlok is followed by a composition in Hindi or Braj Bhasha (classical literary Hindi) composed in the appropriate raag for that time of the day.
