LOVE Is Our True Nature
LOVE is a beautiful blend of sacred chants and flowing melodies that drift over hypnotic rhythms and healing drones featuring mantras to awaken the divine love held gently within your soul.
This album is created especially for yoga, relaxation and meditation with 2 long continuous tracks paced at 60 beats per minute (resting heart rate).This tempo together with a steady constant rhythm and healing mantra vibrations, naturally brings your mind and nervous system into deep peace without effort.All you need do is listen.
Track 1:Song For Krishna (45:35mins)
Features Shyan Kishore, Classical Bansuri Flute
Track 2:Hari Om Meditation (18:10mins)
Hari Om (108 repetitions)
The mantras chosen are devoted to my guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar who comes to me in the form of Krishna. He is the essence of pure divinity and as I sing, this energy flows on the wings of ancient mantras. Love is our true nature and this music helps you reconnect to its pure essence of beauty and peace.
The Story of LOVE
The inspiration for LOVE came about after a blessings meditation retreat given by The Art Of Living Foundation. During the retreat I connected deeply with the mantra Jaigurudev. This means I honour the divine teacher within, which is our true loving nature. As we were blessing each other I felt deeply peaceful and with so much gratitude for the love that was flowing. After the retreat I began to sing Jaigurudev every day and as I did more mantras came forth with beautiful melodies emerging. Song For Krishna was born on that blessed day and has blossomed to a become a beautiful song of the divine.
Calming, meditative, relaxing, restorative, restful …….these are just some adjectives people use to describe Cafe Mantra Music because they have experienced the healing energy of sacred sound. You see, my music is not only beautiful, but scientifically created to harmonise your whole being … your mind, body and soul.
Music is a very important aspect of our lives. As babies, before we started speaking we started making musical sounds and singing. And those sounds are music because there is total harmony – within us and all around us.
Today, when the world is experiencing depression, fear, illness and uncertainty, we go out of harmony, out of tune. Mantra music awakens the vibrations of peace that is deeply embedded in each one of us, restoring us to the natural rhythm of life.
How Does Mantra Music Restore Harmony?
When we get stressed, depressed, tired, confused, ‘over it’, anxious, our natural rhythms change and we go out of tune. Our energies and mind become scattered and ‘all over the place’. Disconnected from our true nature which is always peaceful, happy, clear and wise.
Before we play a guitar, we have to tune it and that’s exactly what mantra music and meditation does for us - it tunes the seven layers of our existence to connect to the cosmic energy. The Body, Mind, Breath, Intellect, Memory, Ego and Self - when these ‘seven strings’ are tuned, music happens within and we experience harmony. That is health.
How Is Cafe Mantra Music Unique?
Cafe Mantra Music uses a special tempo of 60 beats per minute which is the resting heart rate. Just by listening, your subtle energies come into alignment with this natural rhythm. This tempo coupled with the healing vibrations of Sanskrit mantras, soothes your mind and nervous system without effort. All you need do is listen, let go and allow the music to take you on its healing journey. Easy!!!
Everything I create follows the ancient Vedic sciences of yoga, mantra and Ayurveda. As a qualified Ayurvedic practitioner, my knowledge and experience couples with a deep devotion to bring a richness, depth and spiritual energy to my music, teaching and cooking with the intention to help you nourish your entire being.
Blessings for your peace, health and happiness!
