Ektara

Ektara – a single-stringed instrument. Legend says that at Shiva’s wedding with Parvati, sage Narada introduced the groom’s lineage with a single note of an ektara – the closest expression of the primordial “nothingness” that is Shiva. “From Non-Existence to Existence,” explains Sadhguru, “the first expression is a sound.”

This video presents a rare exchange between Pandit Jasraj, a paragon of Hindustani music, and Sadhguru, a living embodiment of the spiritual sciences. Throughout, Panditji’s voice soars, dips, and pirouettes in tandem, taking one to the very edge – where creation ends and Creator begins.
