Sound of Selflessness (Limited Tickets)
Harmonic Chanting by the Gyuto Monks of Tibet
Sat 26 November (5.45-7pm) - $20/$15 (with Saturday “Expo Entry Ticket” to the WHOLE LIFE EXPO 2016*)
The Gyuto Monks of Tibet are a 600-year-old lineage of the Gelugpa School of Tibetan Buddhism—to which the Dalai Lama also belongs. Regarded as masters of tantric ritual, they specialise in deep-voiced harmonic chant. Each monk is able to produce several notes at once over a three-octave range using a combination of fundamental notes and overtones, including some of the lowest notes ever recorded. Their unique sound is also much more than music; it is sacred tantric practice. The sound has been compared to the resonance of a drum or didgeridoo, which has a visceral positive impact on the listener.
