What is Zen?
Whatever is feeling, whatever is perception, whatever are habitual tendencies, whatever is consciousness,whatever is material shape, past, future, present, subjective or objective, gross or subtle, mean or excellent, whether it is far or near — all materials should be seen by perfect intuitive wisdom as it really is: "This is not mine, this I am not, this is not my self." Zen Quotes by Buddha Gautama (born 563 B.C.)
Why Neo Zen Chaturangui?
Here is the creator's statement.
"After Chaturangui I have created and given name Chaturangui in 1978, since then it has received much popularity all around the world, besides many other Indian guitars I have designed and brought to the world I wanted to make another Chaturangui....but here I am where I got to see myself again..."
"..I have been studying Zen since two years roughly, and I felt my music and philosophy has similiarity with the Zen....felt inspired to create a new Chaturangui...."
Neo Zen Chaturangui in its simple shape, colour, string arrangments and sound has the reflection of the Zen philosophy.
Externally keep yourself away from all relationships, and internally have no pantings in your heart; when your mind is like unto a straight-standing wall, you may enter into the Path. -Zen Quotes by Bodhidharma (470-543)
"Strumming on Neo Zen while perfectly tuned gives you that feel. Zen in Japanese means meditation- Neo Zen is a perfect company for that.
It is externally simple and keeps itself far away from being a novelty with ornaments engraves, internally playing it leave your heart free of pain."
He who wherever he goes is attached to no person and to no place by ties of flesh; who accepts good and evil alike, neither welcoming the one nor shrinking from the other — take it that such a one has attained Perfection. "Bhagavad-Gita"
"Neo Zen Chaturangui becomes a friend with no string attached, it gives power of wishdom but no ties of good or eval......but take you to the attainment of perfection."
The mind that does not understand is the Buddha. There is no other....Zen Quotes by Ma-Tsu.
"Neo Zen does not need the understanding of Mind but it gives you comfort of the soul."
You cannot describe it , only can play it. You cannot praise it enough or perceive it but feel it while play. No place than your heart to keep its music.. it is Neo Zen Chaturangui".... Debashish Bhattacharya.
