This album is first and foremost a kirtan album, with the intention to inspire people to chant along with the call and response format and to invoke ecstatic, even transcendent, states of bliss in the listener, through chanting along or even simply through listening.

I’ve intentionally kept the tempos much mellower than I typically do in a live kirtan so that the music can also serve as a backdrop for yoga, meditation and general daily activity.

The album is produced by kirtan producer extraordinaire, Ben Leinbach, and features a very talented group of supporting vocalists and musicians (see credits below), and I'm extremely grateful to all of the all of them for their superb contributions that make the album so beautiful.

Here are some early comments on the album:

"a lovely and profound offering"

"stunningly beautiful for the ear and for the soul"

"full of heart" "chock full of gorgeousness"

"a realm of enchanted Bliss"

"a joy to listen to and sing along with"

"resonates with depth, devotion and a lush organic sound"

"blissful, beautiful and a balm for the heart"

"filled with deep bhav" "truly blissful"

"a quantam gateway to a state one normally only reaches through deep meditation"
