Feel Life’s Potential Reward

September 1st - October 31st, 2011

Many of us know and admire someone who has dedicated their life to serving others. You may know them personally, you may have heard about them from someone else, or perhaps you were on the receiving end of their selfless service. If you know such a person or people, it’s likely that you have wished for them to be recognized or rewarded.

Asarnha Bucha Day

July 15th
Here at Kamalaya we’ve just celebrated Asarnha Bucha day paying respects to the local monks. "Asarnha Bucha" means paying homage and worshiping on the day identified according to the lunar calendar during the eighth month. In the Pali language, ‘Asanha’ is the name of the eighth month. In Thailand, Asarnha Bucha Day (Asanha Puja Day) is one of the government holidays or the public holiday. This day is one of the most sacred in Buddhism. It is a Buddhist festival which typically takes place in July, on the fifteenth day of the waxing moon of the eighth lunar month. It commemorates the day on which Lord Buddha delivered his first sermon called “the Dhammachakapavattana Sutta” to his first five chief disciples at the Deer Park in Benares more than two thousand five hundred years ago. In this holy day, Buddhists all over the country observe the day by presenting offerings to the monks, listening to the sermons, and performing ritual prayers. Many guests came to take part in the ceremonies that took place in the Yantra Hall on this auspicious day.

Kamalaya Gallery presents Dialogues of Time and Nature By Robert Powell

The Exhibition runs through 30th June 2011
The Gallery will be open everyday from 10.00 – 19.00 hrs.
If you are interest in any art please contact the retail staff or Kamalaya Reception

Robert Powell was born in Sydney in 1948, and studied humanities and architecture in Australia. He came to Asia in 1974 and was in India when Ladakh was opened t foreigners for the first time.He spent 7 months there documenting its Tibetan Architecture. That experience was the beginning of a lifelong exploration of Asian cultures, inspired by their material manifestations and especially their traditional architectures.

Since then he has lived and worked in Asia, mostly in the Himalayas, in Nepal, India, Pakistan and also China and Japan. Since 2004 he has been based in Thailand and has begun a series of paintings from Angkor, and the south East Asian region. His sketchbooks, measured drawings, and photographs from more than three decades in Asia continue to inspire current works. His paintings and drawings have been exhibited and published widely and are the subject of two books.
         
Robert Powell is Kamalaya’s architect. As an architect and artist whose interest in vernacular building has kept him in Asia for 30 years, he nevertheless thought that the typical “Thai-style” villa would really be an anomaly on this site. This type of structure, traditionally rooted in the North amongst expanses of rice fields, seemed an inappropriate response to the hilly, rocky beachside of Koh Samui. Instead, the style of Kamalaya is “simple tropical modern.”

Robert will be offering a Kamalaya Site Tour & Gallery Visit every Thursday from 14.00 – 15.30 ( Meet at Alchemy lounge) as part of our holistic activity schedule.

Evening Concert with Gottfried Kling and Friends

Tuesday 15th March
Concert by hang musician Gottfried Kling, who lately has been serenading Kamalaya guests around the grounds. You may have heard him improvising in harmony with the birds, offering meditative melodies in the Monks’ Cave, or adding a reflective touch to your wheatgrass juice and muesli in the morning. Gottfried will be joined by Nai Noi on his lap tapping, finger picking acoustic guitar, Soon on percussion and Noi on violin.

Nai Noi, has a virtuosic tapping and finger-picking guitar style that could fool listeners into believing they are hearing several different instruments being masterfully plucked, beaten, tapped and caressed, in unison. The eclectic fusion of sounds composed and played by the maestro has gained the forty-eight-year-old musician from Bangkok an enviable reputation amongst music fans and contemporaries throughout Thailand and beyond. Tapping is a playing technique that was originally linked to the electric guitar, although Noi uses an acoustic guitar he named, Nuen Anoung, which he says means ‘beautiful lady’.

Gottfried Kling left his home in Switzerland for New Zealand in the 1980s, living as a farmer by day and a drummer by night in the clubs. While he plays the flute and didgeridoo as well, he only fell in love with his instrument of choice, the hang, three years ago while visiting the town of Pai in northern Thailand. The hang is a UFO-shaped instrument about the size of a Jeep tire. It sounds a bit like a mix of steel drum and xylophone, with a mellow tone. Gottfried has been composing hang melodies ever since.

Fire Ceremony

Friday, 14th  January 2011 (11.30 hrs at Yantra Hall)

The Fire Ceremony - Sanskrit Havan or Homa - is an ancient sacred Indian ritual. It consists of offering foods and our prayers to the fire representing the Sun as the giver of life and light.  The sacred fire consumes our offerings and our prayers. The smoke which rises purifies the atmosphere and carries our prayers to the subtle dimensions of creation, whereas the ashes are traditionally used for medicinal purposes.

Sri Babaji said, “Havan is that which brings rain, which brings grain”. Creation stems from Havan as the manifest form of Divine Beings. Whatever we offer goes directly to the Gods invoked. Doing Havan brings happiness and the joys of life, good thoughts and love for one another. The smoke removes what is harmful in the atmosphere and attracts what is good, thereby increasing abundance and prosperity in the world. The Object of this Havan is World Peace and Prosperity

Kitchari Bhandara
Sri Munirajj, a saint on visit from India and disciple of Maha Avatar Babaji, is today offering the sacred fire ceremony dedicated to World Peace as well as Kitchari Bhandara a light food offering, which has been blessed in the ceremony for all of us. Kitchari is a traditional Indian dish prepared with lentils, vegetables and rice, cooked with spices and olive oil. It is a light meal, symbolizing the change in season and a life dedicated to simplicity.
