Brown Rice Psychobabble Utterances from Jon Anderson

“We were in Tokyo on tour, and I had a few minutes to myself in the hotel room before the evening’s concert. Leafing through Paramhansa Yoganada’s “Autiobiography Of A Yogi” I got caught up in the lengthy footnote on page 83. It described the four part shastric scriptures which cover all aspects of religion and social life as well as fields like medicine and music, art and architecture. For some time, I had been searching for a theme for a large scale composition, so positive in character were the shastras that I could visualise there and then, four interlocking pieces of music being structured around them. That was in February. Eight months later, the concept was realised in this recording.”
and also …
“Shrutis. The Revealing Science of God can be seen as an ever-opening flower in which simple truths emerge examining the complexities and magic of the past and how we should not forget the song that has been left to us hear. The knowledge of God is a search, constant and clear.”
“Suritis. The Remembering. All our thoughts, impressions, knowledge, fears, have been developing for millions of years. What we can relate to is our own past, our own life, our own history. Here. It is especially Rick’s keyboards which bring alive the ebb and flow and depth of our mind’s eye: the topographic ocean. Hopefully we should appreciate the given points in time are not so significant as the nature of what is impressed on the mind, and how it is retained and used.”
“Puranas. The Ancient probes still further into the past beyond the point of remembering. Here Steve’s guitar is pivotal in sharpening reflection on the beauties and treasures of lost civilizations, Indian, Chinese, Central American, Atlantean. These and other peoples left an immense treasure of knowledge.”
“Tantras. The Ritual. Seven notes of freedom to learn and to know the ritual of life. Life is a fight between sources of evil and pure live. Alan and Chris present and relay the struggle out of which comes a positive source. Nous sommes du soleil. We are of the sun. We can see.”
