Quick Overview

In Sanskrit, "Namaskar" can be translated as ?Salutation?. In the ritual ceremony, the Namaskar is used as a first step to pray for god before one do anything or any ceremony. The benefit of Namaskar is to purify human spirit and soul. Traditional Namaskar ritual usually starts with the sound of Sankha, Horn and Drum which represented by Brass and Percussion sound in the piece. In this piece, there are some contrasting musical styles which are slow music in slow tempo and fast music in slow tempo. It is to explore the use of time in music. In Asian Philosophy, the use of time can be displayed by a long slow folding line which is shown in this piece by the use of slow tempo with different types of energy.

I hope we Namaskar to God to protect us and most importantly to protect this Earth so we can live happily ever after.
