Free Event – Sunday January 9, 2011
Barton Springs Pool will have a special visitor. Lotus Li (she goes by the single name of Lotus). She hails from the Far East with a remarkable, multi‐octave range, reminiscent of the late Yma Sumac.
The human voice possesses a unique and remarkable power to create harmony. The voice of Lotus demonstrates this kind of human power, raising the awareness so people can experience harmony between the natural world and all sentient beings. The problems facing our planet today can be resolved, she says, if everyone used the power of the pure and loving voice to harmonize and heal.
Every time, Lotus sings spontaneously, responding to the environment. “ I can never repeat the song since everything is constantly moving and changing,” Lotus says. The lyrics of her songs are in unknown languages. Audience members have said they thought she was “speaking in tongues”, “chanting a sacred hymn” and “a voice from heaven.” She feels the vibration and melody of both the physical and metaphysical worlds. To her, everything is a beautiful song! Her heavenly voice, like a running spring, cleanses the mind and spirit and reminds us that we are all ONE.
Lotus was invited to visit the famed Barton Springs, a 3‐acre pool fed from under ground springs that is home to the endangered Barton Springs Salamander. Over the years, Barton Springs Pool has drawn people from all walks of life. Among them, a series of spiritual leaders and teachers have come to bless the waters.
Lotus will visit the springs and sing to the waters. This will be a great opportunity for the public to meet her informally and to hear her remarkable voice. A graceful, lithe woman with long brown tresses of hair, Lotus says: “If our hearts are full of love for all beings and nature, and if we are able to give the voice to that love, we can harmonize everything around us and serve as guardians of Earth, as well as to ourselves. Let us all be guardian angels to earth.”
