Virtual Hari Nam Choir

Virtual Hari Nam Choir

by Hasti Gopal Prabhu

Dear Prabhus.
 
Please accept my humble obeisances all glories to Srila Prabhupada! The Hari Nam Intitiative was a title I came up with for a song or poem which has not been put on paper…yet. :) While driving to work this morning I was listening to Toronto’s CBC station and they played Eric Whitacre’s Virtual Choir – ‘Lux Aurumque’. He is the lead conductor for the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra in Alberta Canada. He put together a choir that, well was very very large. The participants sent in via computer their singing parts to a main web site. Then he orchestrated the whole world wide team to sing “Lux Aurumque”. I have no idea what the piece is but some of you may.
 
It is the largest virtual choir ever assembled to perform. I envision the same for the world’s largest virtual Hari Nam ever performed and we have literally thousands of devotees who could participate. Someone or some few would have to organize and set up the receiving of those participating, a proper metronome pace must be set for the participants so that everyone is close to or on the same rhythm. As for being in key that is not a problem as when mass kirtans are done there is obviously no chance of having everyone on key and that is “not of key importance” :)
 
Now I have included the actual performance of the said choir and the web site that has a section on it’s main page that tells you how they did it. “How we did it”.
 
 
I have just got home from work and have not myself read the web site article on how it was done. So we are all starting off new into this.
 
As for the murdungas, kartalas and perhaps a few more simple perccusion instruments there should only be a select few devotees to play these. If more instruments are required then several more tracts can be made of those same instruments. It is not necessary to film the participants. The voices are all that is needed so it will be strictly an audio project.
 
Please take the time to listen, hear and read what is presented. Lord knows I cannot do this myself but getting it going asap for release world wide asap would be a first class gift to Srila Prabhupada, and Lord Caitanya. This Hari Nam is to be performed by all devotees regardless of so called political and philosophical positions. It will automatically include everyone and anyone on the planet who would like to participate. Solo leads of course are to be there so that the participants can answer and we may have several solo leads both male and female.
 
 
This may spaun a whole multitude of virtual mass kirtans by hundreds of devotees and guests.
 
 
There may need to be a web site set up to organize this but all efforts must be voluntary. If we get into fund raising for this then we get bogged down into adminstration and funds hassles.
 
The whole world is Srila Prabhupada’s temple, the preaching centres, small temples and web sites to mention a few are simply rooms off to the side of the main building. So let’s talk. Let’s not talk about how it can’t be done but let’s talk about how to do it. The process and the finish will make history to last 10,000 years.
 
Let’s attempt this, the meditation by dicussion will help us spiritually, if we fail then it will be done in Srila Prabhupada’s house with no loss, if we succeed then we will fill his house with the glory of the Holy Name for all the world to hear. Millions upon millions will hear this kirtan and millions upon millions may enter Prabhupada House to take shelter.
 
 
All glories to your service. 
 
Ys Hasti Gopala Dasa
