I received this from a dear friend. The study to which Jimmy Sinton referred was not attached, but it reminds me of a smaller study of which I heard from shortly after the original Maharishi Gandharva-Veda Rain Raga first came out, I believe around 20 years ago. TM-Governor David Rosencranz (sp?) reportedly organized a smaller group of locals to play this Rain Raga when California's Carmel Valley was in a drought, and the drought was broken.
If anyone can find Jimmy’s study, would you please forward it to me? Best wishes, Dick I received this email from our neighbor David Bordow. Please read when you have a chance. Thanks! David Dear Neighbors, I received this email from Jimmy Sinton and decided, after watering my garden everyday in-between those elusive rainfalls, that any assistance in avoiding a drought and reducing my water bill might be prudent. As Jimmy mentioned in his email, and I have also heard from people, we may be entering a serious drought period that could be the beginning of another mega drought. Jimmy writes, “ …We have just learned about some awesome research done in South Africa using the rain raga. Over an area of approximately 500 square miles, rainfall increased by 800% above the average for that area, during a 6 week trial with 17 farmers playing the Rain Raga continuously in their barns. Scientists accept a variation of up to 300% as being explicable due to variations in rainfall patterns for this area, so this was 500% above anything that could have happened randomly. See Study document attached. If you have a copy of the Rain Raga Melody on CD you can leave it on repeat play mode while you are out of your home–or just playing in a room at low volume if you are home. If you do not have a CD, you can get it to repeat continuously on your computer at http://listenonrepeat.com/watch/?v=rVr0-G5z_zw#Raga_Megh_(Rain-Melody)_Maharishi_Gandharva-Veda <http://listenonrepeat.com/watch/?v=rVr0-G5z_zw#Raga_Megh_(Rain-Melody)_Maharishi_Gandharva-Veda> Please play this whenever you can and help us to increase our precious rainfall."
