The first day of world peace will find people all over the world gathered in circles, holding hands and giving thanks for life and breath while all the gongs and bells ring together in celebration around the Earth.
Robert Muller, Chancellor of the World Peace University in Costa Rica
A Gong Masters series of Day One World Peace Celebration Gongs recommended by Grand Gong Master Don Conreaux.
By December 21, 2012 up to 90 of these special gongs will have been made available world-wide for celebrating the first day of World Peace.
Made from Nicle Silver alloy of 23, 31 and 42 inches in diameter.
The Maitreyan hand or OM sign is inscribed in the center and Tai Loi is inscribed above and below on the front with Blue-Green Earth as seen from outer space in the center.
Optional: airbrush/custom color painting.
The 23″ gongs are light and easily hand held with a low resonant fundamental tone.
VIDEO THE ROLE OF THE GONGMASTER IN GLOBAL PEACE MAKING
The Gong of World Peace could have had its beginnings in what we now call Iran around 6,000 years ago, circa. 4,000 BC. This flat disc shaped musical alloy of Copper & Tin mysteriously appeared in Mesopotania/Sumeria to begin the earliest Age of Bronze and the birth of synthesis that has led to today’s computerized science of exotic metallurgy, quantum physics, and the syntonic music of functional harmony. The appearance of the gong appeared parallel to the beginning of writing and the establishment of the ‘city’.
Bronze was humanity’s first alloy to be used as weaponry. However, bronze was more resonant than resilient in battle, and by 2500 BCE it was being replaced by a harder metal to begin the Age of Iron which gave way to Steel and our technological Industrial/Military Age.
Bronze called the poor man’s gold can be seen and heard as our most resonant ambassador of World Peace though in the form of a gong. As such it also symbolizes the melting down of weapons of war to be re-cycled as resonant gongs and bells of peace. This ancient tradition of making peace continued after World War II. The great bells that had been turned into cannon fodder by the Nazis were re-cast as bells after peace was declared in Europe.
Shell casings are still made of Bronze, but no longer are bronze bells and gongs melted down and turned into weaponry by today’s advanced civilizations. Yet, on the other hand today bronze weaponry may still be re-cycled back into Gongs and Bells of Peace.
Along with their symbolic social meaning, the musical resonators of gong tone have other unique qualities. One is the process of synthesis on a mental/emotional level.
It seems the power of synthesis that created the alloy is released through the tone of the gong in the form of functional harmony as distinct from natural harmony.
Functional harmony is really a music of the spheres. The orbits of the planets though not in natural harmonic ratios to each other still work together in a functional harmony.
In functional harmony two dissimilar tones are called non-harmonics, yet they can if both are of the same volume produce tone progeny or resultant tones replicating on a level of tone that is called in Biology mitosis or organic cell reproduction.
Because the great collective OM tone of the gong is a multi-unity of living tones that work together, it is speculated that this power of synthesis which creates soniclly a dynamic sense of peace can affect the consciousness of our global society to become more vibrant and cooperative while less discordant and fragmented.
All people despite their differences have in common a unique experience with the universal gong. You may call this experience a ‘re-spirit-ing of the soul’ and it seems not to matter whether a person belongs or doesn’t belong to a religion giving rise to the thought that the gong might exalt the human spirit of humanity at large.
Others have thought so, most notably the last Buddha in 600 BCE, 25 Centuries ago. His concept of telepathic resonance and loving kindness was captioned within the name he chose for his next incarnation; the name Maitreya signifying a full return of happiness and friendship throughout humanity. This is one of the reasons the glyphs on a sacred gong’s face read in Mandarin Chinese, “Tai Loi” or Happiness Has Arrived. To others it meant the spiritualization of matter.
Gongs were used by ancient psycho-therapists for healing the existential fears of individuals in a kind of sonic cleansing through the use of sustained pulsating tones.
Gongs were also used in ancient days to announce the time of peaceful cooperation after a war ended and the appearance of spiritual royalty.
Although a gong is a metallic entity that produces living or organic tones, a human being is an organic gong as well, and when dedicated to humanity, it can synthesize diverse peoples into dynamic cooperation of functional harmony. I am and You are Gongs of humanity.
The role of the gong player is to be a catalyst for the realization of unity in diversity.
