Maharishi talks about the gap between scriptural syllables as the silence that gives rise to the form of the universe(s).
Space, silence is what serves music and people. Effective drumming invokes silence and is the invisible usher of silence.
Like keeping a small fire going or rowing a boat.
Practice with a relaxed and open heart. Transmute the desire to showcase your skill into a commitment to dissolve completely and serve the wholeness of the music of every moment.
