From the recording Gathering
This piece is in jhaptaal, a ten beat rhythmic cycle. The two groups of five beats may be seen as the five external elements and their internal counterparts, the five senses. "Surya" means sun, and "Chandra" means moon, so in addition to the five beat pulses their is also the duality of light and dark that passes through the daily flow of our lives. Very good for restoring balance to one's respiratory cycle and removing other daily imbalances.
