Secrets | Soul Calls

Moon and Rose. by SadiqThe beauty of the rose
holds a secret;
A secret my heart knows:
That You are Love.

The beauty of the stars
holds a secret;
A secret my heart knows:
That You are Light.

The stillness deep within
holds a secret;
A secret my heart knows:
That You are here.

Secret Love, secret Light,
Beautiful Lord.

[>] "Secrets" will be recorded in a future Soul Calls album; other Soul Calls can be heard at www.soulcalls.org


About Soul Calls | Experience of Sacred Music

"After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music."
- Aldous Huxley

"Music is the inner or universal language of God."
- Sri Chinmoy

Soul Calls are streams of spiritual musical experiences that are reflections of the deepest yearning of the human soul for union with the Divine Beloved. Birthing through spontaneous and meditative mystical experiences, the songs: its verses and music, which later named as Soul Calls were first given to Saranya in 1999. The actual experiences, like most of the deep mystical experiences are too ethereal to put into words and description. They came 'as they came' and they still come 'as they come'.

Since 2002 the focus for Saranya has been on recording the divinely gifted Soul Calls for posterity. The Soul Calls CD 1 to 3, The Trilogy chronicles the devotee’s journey from being weary of the world and beginning to call on the Divine Presence, to being told to go within, learning that the soul can soar, having meditative experience and deeper spiritual understanding, being anchored in God, longing for Union, and at last engaging in the Divine Romance.

Recorded and produced in India, so far four CD’s have been completed and the 5th CD is currently in process. The Soul Calls continue to be mystically transmitted to Saranya. To date, over 50 Soul Calls have manifested in the meditative state.

The Soul Calls provide an avenue for getting in touch with one's own heart and soul and personal relationship with the Divine Beloved and for reconnecting with that spirituality which transcends clime, time, race, organized religion, and things of the world. Bringing together the East and West, this new devotional, universal music that speaks to every listening heart in the language of the Soul is a testimony to the brotherhood of man and the supremacy of the Soul. This new devotional body of work and universal genre of sacred music cuts across all boundaries of distinction.

With world class East Indian traditional instrumentation and English lyrics in the style of the mystic lovers of God, Mirabai, Tagore, Rumi, and Kabir, the Soul Calls echo the ageless desire of the Soul for union with the Divine Beloved. As intimate and introspective love songs to God, the Soul Calls affirm the love and longing for, and the presence of, the Divine Beloved and give new universal expression to the devotee’s spiritual journey and devotional experience.

In this age when interior peace is a forgotten, but precious commodity, the Soul Calls dissolve cultural, religious, and ideological boundaries, by peacefully carrying the consciousness within - and turning it Godward. In that place of interior peace and Divine Remembrance, expanded personal peace and magnanimity of heart are experienced as one witnesses in the Soul Calls, and in oneself, this new expression of eternal verities.
