about

This is universal world music, not limited by borders, cultures, musical traditions or religions. It is a unique combination of Vedic mantra and world fusion.

It was channeled from the Divine and despite the depth of the arrangements and original compositions, the entire CD was conceived, composed and completed through dedication, devotion and Divine grace in six intense and life-changing weeks.

The tracks are full of Nada Shakti, the Divine essence travelling through sound and blessings are incorporated into the music for the benefit of the listener.

Enjoy this sacred journey and may it help you surrender to a new world of love, inspiration, fulfilment, inner peace and bliss.

(Recommended: Do not play this CD whilst operating heavy machinery or driving).

The legend behind this mantra is a beautiful story. A devout couple who worshipped Shiva were unable to have children. After many years of prayer and purification, they desperately prayed to Lord Shiva for a child.

Pleased with their devotion, Shiva appeared to them and said: “what is it you want?” They told their Divine Father that they wanted a child. Shiva went within and saw their karma. He then said to them: “You can either have an egocentric, selfish, embittered soul who will make your life miserable, but who will live a long life and have children of their own, Or you can have the child of a Rishi, a saintly soul who you will love and who will be devoted to you. But he will leave his body right on the 16th anniversary of his birth.”

The parents looked at each other crestfallen, but both chose the same thing: “The saintly child. “Let it be so” said Shiva, and nine months later the wife gave birth to a stunning baby boy who was the apple of the parents' eye.

After a blissful 15 years, the parents slowly started to get depressed. They never told their child of the choice they had made, but he knew something was wrong. On the eve of his 16th birthday he saw through mystic sight the cause of his parents distress, and he shouted out to Lord Shiva to save him. So adamant and filled with light and devotion was this youth that Lord Shiva appeared before him, saying that he could not change the boy's karma, he had to die when he turned 16. However as Shiva is the Lord of Time, he could stop time in the youth’s life, granting him eternal life. Thus, the saintly boy conquered death. Personally, I think perhaps the youth was Babaji, the Eternal saint.

Meaning: We worship and adore you, O three-eyed one, O Shiva. You are sweet gladness, the fragrance of life. You nourish us, restore our health, and cause us to thrive. As, in due time, the stem of the cucumber weakens, and the gourd is freed from the vine, free us from attachment and death, and grant us immortality.

The chant is from the Ancient Durga Sapta Sloki chant, and has the following meaning:

No calamity befalls the men and women who have sought you: by your refuge we stay on the right path. You are the ultimate refuge when we depart this world”.
