The Eternity Game – Yoga as Play
The Eternity Game is a meditation game with cards, a game of symbols, an Oracle-type game, and a transformative game. It is also an ontological, cosmological, mythological and psychological game. The archetypes, the power and forces, the kingdom and dominions, the chakras and avatars, the thrones and meditations are all brought to us through their symbols, so that we may become acquainted with them, know them, play with them and receive their messages.

The voice that chants to the creator Fire,
The symbolled OM, the great assenting Word (Savitri p.310)
In 1961 the Mother gave the adesh to Narad to bring down a new music. She said that one must go far above words and bring down the pure Music. Mother told us to sit in a circle and have no preconceptions as to what we would sing but to be silent and let the music descend in us. The OM Choir aspires to bring down the New Music for the New World in a collective body. We sing only OM, the creative and effectuating
word after starting with warming-up and voice exercises. Until the end of March 2014 Narad will be with us and work with us.
