“I don’t play the gongs – the gongs play me.” The gongs are unlike any ordinary “musical” instrument. The sounds they make when struck by the mallet are completely unpredictable. So there’s no point in trying to determine beforehand exactly what “tune” I will play today, or any other day. Instead, the gongs are my Teacher. They teach me to be ever mindful, to be present, to Be Here Now. They remind me to be humble, to walk with the Divine, to trust that Life brings exactly what is in the highest good of all concerned, to appreciate the Oneness of all Creation, and to Be in the high vibrational space of Love." Jere Friedman
"The Gong is the first and last instrument for the human mind.
There is only one thing that can supersede and command the human mind
- the sound of the Gong.
It is the first sound of the universe, the sound that created this universe.
It is the basic creative sound. To the mind, the sound of the gong is like a mother and father that gave it birth."
"The mind has no power to resist a gong that is well played.”
- Yogi Bhajan
