SARASWATI  SOCIETY
THE ART OF DEVOTION TO SELF KNOWLEDGE
WELCOME

Welcome to the Saraswati Society Website

We hope that you will enjoy reading about the subjects of philosophy and melody which have, since ancient times, been combined in such a way that the love of life and the knowledge of the Self are both increased.

Some of you may know the ancient story of the Lord Shri Krishna and his magic flute, which enchanted the cowherd girls of Vraja -  and how this engendered a spontaneous dance which filled their hearts with devotion and a love for life and the pursuit of wisdom.

Others may know of the mystical music which Pythagoras discovered during his stay in the Egyptian Temples  - and how, following a divine revelation, he was able to use his own genius to create a system of melody, so that we too could come closer to the knowledge of our own true Self.

In the tradition of Pythagoras, the Sufis of Persia combined the philosophy of India with music and the mystical dance to produce a path to the Divine, which has continued as an oral tradition into the 20th Century, despite religious and political attempts to corrupt or commercialise  it.

Whichever is the reason for your visit we are sure you will find this site interesting and enjoyable.  Please let your friends know about us.
