Russian Singing Bells in Auroville
The Russian Singing Bells in Auroville is a project inspired by the Mother’s vision of national cultural pavilions in the International Zone of Auroville.
The Russian Singing Bells came to Auroville in December 2007 as a gift to the Russian Pavilion and regular weekly sessions with the instrument were organised by Vera Lipen, the initiator of the project. Any person could come and listen to the Bells and also play them. The sound of this instrument creates a special meditative atmosphere and helps connecting to the deeper reality within oneself. It is also used for collective meditations.
The instrument can be played by single or multiple players. The lingering resonating sound waves of the Singing Bells open wide the doors of musical harmony and provide a comfortable space for exploring through sound one’s own inner world. Rhythms and melodies that come out of these explorations are mostly spontaneous. Two or more people playing the instrument together get a rare chance to enter into deep and joyful communication without words. During the open sessions with the Bells already more than thousand people from many countries had this intimate experience of inner tuning and connection through sound without words.
