On 28 April the Global Mother Divine Organization* continued its tradition of celebrating the Full Moon with a special presentation on Total Knowledge-Based Art and Music.
A highlight of the celebration was the videotape of an address by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi speaking about art and music. Maharishi's address was given via teleconference during the Parliament of World Peace held at the Brahmasthan [auspicious central point] of India from January to March 2006.
Maharishi's address was introduced by the Raj Rajeshwari** leading the celebration. In his discourse Maharishi defined the supreme level of art as the 'skillful operation of transformation'. He said that transformation in the direction of evolution produces change that is comfortable and enjoyable. Music is said to be the change that is always enjoyable, always comfortable, and always in the direction of more and more.
Maharishi used the analogy of a tree to illustrate this point. The sap is the essence of the tree. The sap 'rejoices in growing', he said, 'because the sap always remains the sap no matter what transformation it goes through.' The sap becomes the sprout; it becomes branches; it becomes flowers, fruit, and even the sweet juice of the fruits; and eventually the seed, which allows the tree to sprout anew. 'The sprout always rejoices in growing because the sap always maintains its dignity of its sapness throughout all these transformations. The sap is transformed while remaining sap.'
Maharishi explained that this transformation takes place within itself, which creates waves and waves of bliss because it is self-referral. Nothing rejoices in becoming something. The state of Being transforms itself into the state of becoming without ever getting out of its own Being.
This is art and music on the level of creation—the unmanifest, functioning within itself and creating the entire universe, Maharishi said.
