Kecak

Share it Please
The scene was too dark for photos. I'll have a video later capturing some of the mysterious figure moving around the central fire.

What we saw tonight was a world first, a Kecak dance performed by women. Instead of the usual Ramayana story of Sita's rescue, the troup performed an episode from the Mahabaharata.

In the dark courtyard lit mostly by flame, one hundred women appeard on the vast staircase desencing to the central dance area. It was spell binding as they produced all the sounds, song and words of the epic story.

When the central figures joined them they seemed to glide rather than walk or dance. Flickering flame light and flashes from audience cameras turned the whole scene into something intoxicating and unreal, transporting me to the middle of an ancient story.

The chanting and endless vocal percussion had a hypnotising effect and I still feel kinda high from it all.

Wow.

I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
