George Couttolenc - Making of Timeless Truth Meditation


I am about to publish a new song later today, "Truth Meditation." The music for "Truth Meditation" was written, arranged and recorded by George Couttolenc, a passionate "24x7" musician/composer from Mexico City, Mexico.

I stumbled onto George's reverbnation page on December 20th, and listened to the track "Hudson Morning" and was instantly moved by the peace it enveloped me with. I was reminded of the first couplet that my dear Guru Nanak sang before starting the first lines of the most beautiful poem ever written, Japji Sahib:

"Aad Sach, Jugaad Sach
Hai Bhi Sach, Hosi Bhi Sach"

which roughly means:

In The Primal Beginning True, Throughout The Ages True,
Here And Now True, O Nanak, Forever And Ever True.

I was singing with "Hudson Morning" as soon as I heard the song and asked George if I could use the music to create a meditation song. Within minutes of my request, he was very gracious to let me download an MP3, which I took with me to my vacation last week in Florida to practice. Yesterday (the morning after we landed in California back from Florida) I recorded the vocals and mastered the song earlier today.

Much thanks to George for inspiring me with his beautiful music; may God bless him and his music to spread peace in hearts of people around the world. His music can be found at reverbation: http://www.reverbnation.com/jcouttolenc
