In the times of Covid-19 pandemic, everyone is coronaraving a.k.a virtual raving. So as the Goa Gil, but it’s not a regular set. Those who attended Goa Gil’s set will know that he does a long ritual set. With a lot of set up on his table.
This includes photos and statues of god & goddess, decorations, pooja samargi and his record cassettes with dj console of course. Basically he perform pooja (prayer ritual as per hinduism) half an hour before his set. He reaches an hour before on booth and do all his arrangement before set. And his sets are usually long six hour, eight hour, twelve hours because it’s a musical journey making it a dance ritual.
In the first Digital Darshan, which happened some days back, he played more than 24 hours. You can check on his twitch page.
Digital Darshan 2 is being held on 4th July 2020. There is another occasion that day, it’s Guru Purnima. This day is marked for the birth of Ved Vyas. Guru Purnima or Vyas Purnima is on 5th July.
Maharishi Ved Vyas is an enlightened human and teacher. He is master of Ved, Upanishad and Puran. Ved Vyas taught his students with no monetary expectation, based on his Karam Yog.
There is a spiritual tradition in Hinduism to worship Maharishi Ved Vyas on this day. Guru (teacher) is equivalent to God as per Indian culture. Guru Purnima has a lot of spiritual significance.
In a way, Goa Gil is sharing his wisdom and knowledge through his craft i.e. Music. This would be a special ritual by him. Link for Goa Gil Digital Darshan 2 is – Here
