If you consider may be thousands of people, out of them two can appreciate music. If you take thousands of such music appreciating people, out of them one or two will take up some instrument and practice. Out of thousands of such such persons who sit and practice, one or two become great artists. And out of thousands of such great artists, one becomes Pt. Hariprasad Chaurasia.
Why Pt. Hariprasad Chaurasia is so special for me or for all music lovers? Not only that, he is very famous even in the circle of artists. What is so special about this person named Hariprasad Chaurasia? What he is made up of? Even enlightened soul like Osho was in Love with Pt. Hariprasad Chaurasia. The reason is, Pt. Hariprasad Chaurasia is a unique soul. He is not just an artist, he is much more.
Pt. Hariprasad Chaurasia has a breath which is more beautiful than any person breathing on this earth. At the same time, he is one of the most humble personalities which have. He is very positive human being. What is an artist’s music? For me it is nothing but the benediction of your being, your skills, your thoughts as a person and essence of what you are apart from your thoughts.
Whenever I see hariji anywhere, his presence is so pleasant. So, his music is also bound to be pleasant. He is much more than an artist. He has taken efforts to ensure that the stream of music goes on. He has taken enough care that he leaves his music, flute in right hands.
Pt. Hariprasad Chaurasia is surely an incarnation of Lord Krishna…..
