In one famous story from India a renowned musician came to play at the kings court. The villagers where invited to come and listen but received a stern warning before the concert started; if anyone did move while the music was playing they would receive a severe punishment afterwards. So while the concert was happening the guards of the palace where alert and if they saw one of the villagers move to the music they wrote down his or her name. Some people though couldn't resist the rhythm and their bodies started to move. After the concert was finished the people whose names where written down where asked to stay. In the courtroom the king and the musician appeared. 'Now we can really start' said the musician' before was just warming up. You have proven that even if punishment would follow your bodies cannot stop to move to the music, for you I kept my best music.' And he played all night long his best songs for the remaining villagers.

Music for Whirling
Track two, Music for Whirling, is more rhythmic. The music can be used for whirling meditation or just to be enjoyed for relaxation.
The last track, Evening meditation, is almost half an hour of deep meditation. Just as the sun is slowly disappearing behind the horizon one can sink deeper in oneself until only the watcher remains.
Fire Dance Meditation
A full meditation by Atmani. Shake the body, dance and sit silently. The last part is an exercise in gratitude.
