Contemporary meditative music and 'clean' chant introduced in therapeutic, corporate and healing institutions, offers a few moments of delight and upliftment as Robert Adams sings along in several songs. "Light a candle, have fresh flowers, beauty, and sing to God with all your heart." Whether in the car or on lunch break, this ancient prescription of attunement with heavenly higher Reality is a breath of fresh air aligning us with Truth eternal. Unmistakably ecstatic world chant with a clean melodic meditative purity incorporating orchestral with traditional classical Indian instruments, lead by professional classically trained 'kirtan' or spiritual chant leaders. A beautiful contemporary mood lifting octave of non-denominational higher attunement suitable for mainstream incorporation in therapeutic, corporate and educational programs, presently utilized as such.

 

Welcome! Enjoy! "I welcome you with all my heart. It is a joy to see your smiling faces. Smile and be of good cheer."

 

iCHANT originated in Robert Adams love of music with the heart of a musician. Beginning with his Inner Circle of students with original and classical chants selected and guided personally by Robert Adams who incorporated music in the majority of his talks. Additional artists on other songs adhere to various faiths, holding in common deep regard for the laws of Ahimsa and the Golden Rule. Violin performance  is offered by various students. George Wilson of The Vedanta Society and Unity Church has performed flute with humble love since childhood.

 

He has been a documented, archived attendant student of the gentle sage since attending private counsel and talks in Arizona. .

 

Dani has been playing the violin since the age of fourteen, performing at our Tributes and in Georgetown. She has

performed regularly at Washington D.C. special events, and is a ten year volunteer with The Benevolence Project.

 

"Never think you are above singing to God. Chanting makes you holy, makes you pure. If you do nothing else, chant when you wake up and before going to sleep. This will change your entire consciousness. Sing the music of your faith, Sufi, Hindu, Christian, all that maters is that you sing with all your heart. Sing with all of the love in your heart and this will guide you through your day. You will rise above this world. Then radiate this love, this higher awareness to others. But you must do this with great love. Great joy. Sing to God with all your heart and rise above the vicissitudes of this world. Then you naturally wish to reflect this truth to others, alleviating the suffering of all sentient beings. Be happy! Rejoice! This is why we sing here each week." Robert Adams

 

"Bliss is the center of your being. Bliss is who You really are, God within you. You will feel this bliss immediately upon applying these Practices. You will feel a lightness, a joy. The world will lose its hold on you. You will feel one with the animals, people, all of life. So called problems will dissipate. God, The Power That Knows the Way will guide your life, bring right relationships. You will be protected. Trust in the supremacy of Goodness. It is all up to you. Upon devoting yourself to meditation, inquiry, prayer, you will rise. You will rise above the vile actions of this world. I am calling you to a higher vision. Won't you begin today?"

Extended Versions of All iChant Meditative Original Chants are on The iChant CD and A New Realty CD Set

 

This life may be a dream but it can be a joyful one."

Robert Adams on Chant/Spiritual Music in light of personal unfoldment:

"Chanting makes the heart pure."

"Chant to God with all your heart. Worship makes you pure. Humble. Holy."

"It is good to chant, sing the songs of your faith. Sing sincerely to God."

"We like to wake up and chant as the sun comes up. This is a good way to start the day. You can use the songs we sing here."

"Last week someone was asking me about the spiritual songs we sing, spiritual ballads. The most important thing is that your heart opens to the Self. The Supreme. It can be Sufi, Christian, Hindu.
Just sing with all your heart. Until you feel the peace. The love." "Sing holy songs with a pure selfless heart, surrender it all to God."
"Let us all sing together now."

"Why Do We Have Music Here Every Week?"

"Someone asked me why we have live music here every week. If you do not open your heart to God, you get caught up in your head, head knowledge. This will not do. You can memorize hundreds of spiritual terminologies but if you are not feeling God in your heart it is just dry head knowledge. Therefore, we sing beautiful music here, and it is good to do this everyday. This has been done for thousands of years. Some people like Gregorian chants. That is fine. Others like the ones we do here.
Just do it, chant and sing everyday. The world will lose its hold on you. Sing until you feel the sweetness. The nectar of the Self. The peace. The love that is God within you."
"This makes the mind one pointed."

"This has been done for thousands of years. The names of God have a strong power to them. When you repeat them, your entire being absorbs this and you are lifted up."

Robert Adams equally sang "American" ballads with a live performer and international chants. He also held all day celebrations of musicians and all day chanting in the ashram tradition. The chants and St.Francis prayer on the final CD of the three CD New Reality contain the chants that Robert offered and utilized in his public talks performed live. He began and ended his earlier years of classes with the song "Let There Be Peace On Earth." As we focus in the spiritual heart on the right side of the chest we merge with the melody then open our minds to the words of the song or chant. The purity lifts one upwards. The emotion of the music draws the attention to the words and the spiritual qualities of the words - the vibration of this spiritual message - is assimilated as like vibration awakening one to the Supreme .

 


Everything is vibration and light energy, wherein the ancient names of God or the heartfelt 'japa' (the rosary and prayer beads are 'japan') 'purify' one.  You will experience this blissful joyful state as you go deeper into the pure consciousness which You are. Chanting, spiritual music, assertations, meditation and self Inquiry (atma-vichara) with ' a pure heart and devotion' bring the fastest results. The vibration/love of the music and the combination of his personal truth teaching was originally brought to the West by Robert Adams to enable the sincere aspirant to quickly and easily assimilate the truth teaching as direct experience.

 

"Make life easier for all mankind." We have attached one of the chants here in this email for your practice. Still your mind using the I AM Meditation with the breath and then focus deeply on the chant. "Prepare a beautiful place, a peaceful place with a candle, a flower." In understanding the difference in Easter/Western foundation; The professional kirtan leader musician here, as directed by Robert Adams, brought the traditional single note chant into a melodic medium containing harmonies and western instruments into an easily recognizable and emotional harmonic medium where merging into the vibration of truth is very easy and the consciousness lifts effortlessly. (In the traditional western 12 note western scale the listener is used to harmonic patterns that stir the emotions. Indian music uses a subset of a roughly equal-spaced 22-tone (22 shruti) scale and focuses more on a single note reference). Repetition and practice yield amazing results. Just as you will notice your mood will change when you hear a song that reminds you of a pleasurable experience and you are carried away, the chants even more so harmonize the breath and magnetize the mind and soul automatically. This prepares the mental/emotional spiritual place to deepen your practices.

 

God visits you here in the heart of hearts, where you have been all along... and you remember that you are the Self. (God within) The stillness you experience is very different from western 'thought' and 'silence'. It is full, peaceful and joyful, deeply expanding into the bliss that is your true nature. "The Silence and Happiness. They are the same." That was his experience and the experience of those who practice this beautiful humble teaching. "It is all about the love. Don't forget the love. Never forget the most important thing. Love, compassion and humility. When practicing inquiry, sadhana, don't forget the love." The online Candlelight Circle constitutes a world wide studentship: Chant, Pondering a portion of the book Happiness, and meditation. This is a gift to all. In the future perhaps this may be of value to you in enjoyment and introduction to chant and select spiritual music.

 

Kindness regards in brotherhood, much peace and happiness to you.

The Robert Adams Institute for Compassionate Living


When you listen, your voice automatically begin to harmonize. Find the center of the sound. Stay with your feeling. If you go off into the world of thoughts, don't judge yourself; Simply bring your concentration back to feeling. The Spiritual Heart Center, found on the right side of the chest, is the natural place to begin. With each repetition, feel the chant touching your being in a deeper and deeper way. Breath is life. Breath is movement. Voice is breath. Let breath breathe. Return to awareness of breath in silence between the chant phrases.

iCHANT   What A Wonderful World - Robert Adams Favorite Song

fd

 

What A Wonderful World is the beloved gentle Sage Robert Adams, favorite song.
Rising at dawn daily to hike mountain tops and walk for miles before
responding to phone counsel appointments to hundreds of students throughout
the world, he joyfully played this song regularly in his private family home
during suppers and on family holidays, reminding all of the Truth of our Eternal Life. Enjoy wonderful

narratives of the music enjoyment in Robert Adams home in Infinity JOURNAL and In My Fathers Garden.

 

"You must develop a sense of brotherhood with all of humanity. Joining singing everyday at the same time is very powerful"

Robert Adams equally sang "American" ballads with a live performer and international chants. He also held all day celebrations of musicians and all day chanting in the ashram tradition. The chants and St.Francis prayer on the final CD of the three CD New Reality contain the chants that this gentle sage selected, offered and utilized in his public talks performed live. He began and ended his earlier years of classes with the song "Let There Be Peace On Earth." His favorite song is"What a Wonderful World".


The remarkable Master Teacher remains in my heart in our videos listening to
this last piece of inspirational music holding his daughters hand upon
choosing to be sequestered with his cherished family, gazing peacefully at
the skyline in the snow covered mountains of Sedona which he was visiting
for over a year, in his beautiful scenic hilltop home during the winter
months. Symbolic of his personal Teaching of Illumination through love,
compassion and humility, which is 'Your True Self', the beauty of the
creation of the Supreme, the true loving nature of humanity, and the joy
that is our birthright, this song resonates with the twinkling gentility
                            amid modern sensibilities of a gentle heart and benevolent nature of Robert Adams.

 

"Rejoice in the Splendor and the Glory!
Surround yourself in loving environments. Serve your family, serve your
friends, put children first. Enjoy the beautiful things of this world, the
flowers, art, music, the vast sky, the animals and children. Spend time in
nature pondering The Supernal. Become benevolent. Giving. As you are
Unfolding, reside amidst the innocent and pure in this world. Spread
sunshine to all you meet. Be a Source of Good in this world. Abide in
Goodness. Never become bitter, cynical unkind. Be gentle. Gracious. Remember
God. Offer a comforting word to others. An encouraging compassion. These
things bring Grace. These things reflect holiness." Robert Adams
Enjoy dear friends.

 

Why and How: The Beauty of Meditative Reflective Chant

As we focus in the Spiritual Heart on the right side of the chest we merge with the melody, then open our minds to the words of the song or chant.

fg
The purity lifts one upwards. The emotion of the music draws the attention to the words and the spiritual qualities of the words - the vibration of this spiritual message - is assimilated as like vibration awakening one to the Supreme.

Everything is vibration and light energy, wherein the ancient names of God or the heartfelt 'japa' (the rosary and prayer beads are 'japan') 'purify' one. "Your job is to alleviate the suffering of others in practical ways." Thus the sage teaches that this divine connection is created to carry outwardly as a more compassionate, serviceful person rather than as a personal self focus.

"Beecome a good person first. Then do inquiry. Follow the Yamas and Niyamas. The Golden Rule."

"Dive into this joy everyday. Light a candle, have beautiful flowers, and sing with joyful enthusiasm everyday."
You will experience this blissful joyful state as you go deeper into the pure consciousness which you are.

Chanting, spiritual music, assertations, meditation and self Inquiry (atma-vichara) with ' a pure heart and devotion' bring the fastest results. The vibration/love of the music and the combination of this personally experienced truth teaching was originally brought to the West by Robert Adams to enable the sincere aspirant to quickly and easily assimilate the truth teaching as ones own direct experience, anchored in a foundation of the ancient precepts of universal ethics, The Golden Rule, the ancient Yamas and Niyamas.

"Make life easier for all mankind. Alleviate the suffering of others. Ask others what you can do to make their lives easier."

 

One may simply dive into the recording, beginning with the introductory lyrics and accelerating ones inner intensity. Still your mind using the I AM Meditation with the breath and then focus deeply on the chant. "Prepare a beautiful place, a peaceful place with a candle, a flower." Meditative chanting differs from the more intensive, activating chant in that a 'heavenly' accent on gentle opening to the higher realms or 'heavenly lokas' is accentuated. Other styles encompass differing emphasis, varying paths and patterns.

 

The Musical Pattern-Enjoying the Origins of Music

In understanding the difference in Easter/Western foundation;

The professional kirtan leader or classically temple trained musician here, as selected by Robert Adams, brings the traditional single note chant into a melodic medium containing harmonies and western instruments into an easily recognizable and emotional harmonic medium where merging into the vibration of truth is very easy and the consciousness lifts effortlessly. (In the traditional western 12 note scale the listener is used to harmonic patterns that stir the emotions. Indian music uses a subset of a roughly equal-spaced 22-tone (22 shruti) scale and focuses more on a single note reference). Repetition and practice yield amazing results. Just as you will notice your mood will change when you hear a song that reminds you of a pleasurable experience and you are carried away, the chants even more so harmonize the breath and magnetize the mind and soul automatically. This prepares the mental/emotional spiritual place to deepen you practices.

 

Happiness

"The Silence and Happiness are the same. The Silence does not mean to not make noise, to be quiet. You can be very quiet and not be in the Silence or Bliss. Some of the most quiet people are the meanest people you will ever meet. The Silence is an interior realization. It is the joy that bubbles up."

"God visits you here in the heart of hearts, where you have been all along... and you remember that You (the divine within) are the Self. (God within) The stillness you experience is very different from western 'thought' and 'silence' and 'nothingness'. It is full, peaceful and joyful, deeply expanding into the bliss that is your true nature. "The Silence and Happiness. They are the same."
That was Robert Adams experience and the experience of those who practice this beautiful humble teaching.

fg

"Don't Forget the Love."

"It is all about the love. Don't forget the love. Never forget the most important thing. Love, compassion and humility. When practicing inquiry, sadhana, don't forget the love." Robert Adams

The online Candlelight Circle constitutes a world-wide studentship: Chant, Pondering a portion of the book Happiness, and meditation. "Rejoice in the splendor and glory of the Supreme. Enjoy this life, forgive everyone, become a living conduit of love, compassion and humility. This will accelerate unfoldment in a beautiful way. Singing to God alleviates much suffering. Rejoice!"

 

Kindness regards in brotherhood, much peace and happiness to you.
