Gandharvas: (Sanskrit, गंधर्व) Known for their superb musical skill, and for being messengers between humans and the Gods.

On Saturday, May 22nd, Pandit Deobrat Mishra and Prashant Mishra offered a concert of classical Indian music in the Temple of Divine Light at Yasodhara Ashram.

The Mishras‘ have been sharing their musical heritage at the Ashram for several years, playing concerts and offering workshops in the traditional music of Varanasi. In 2009, they created a school in Nelson, BC, through Selkirk College–teaching classes in vocal, sitar and tabla. Proceeds from the concert were raised in support of the school.

Pandit Deobrat concluded the night with a prayer song to Divine Mother, and afterward shared his feelings on offering sacred music in temples and ashrams around the world. In this video, he speaks of the suffusing and healing effect music has had on his life.
