Lambo Dara is an ancient Indian classical song to Ganesha, the remover of obstacles. Written in the 15th century, this beautiful song is sung in Rag Malahari, which has a purifying quality to destroy impurities. A raga is a musical scale that carries spiritual vibrations and has a unique sound, quality and energy. It's beauty is held within every note and the words evoke deep devotion.
Meaning Of The Lyrics
The song praises Lord Ganesha. “You have a big energy and the divine mother Laksmi is in your palm. We are blessed. Son of Parvati you are praised by angels. You are the leader of all the servants and your body is red in colour. You are the ocean of compassion and we bow down. When we sing to you we receive the skills to uplift ourselves”.
Lambo Dara means long stomach. This represents the big energy in the solar plexus where Ganesha energy manifests. Ganesha is depicted with a fat stomach and his palm is facing towards us with light emanating from it. This light is the energy of Laksmi. The light blesses us, like the life giving sun. The sun enlightens us and radiates in every cell of our body and this mantra brings forth that energy. When singing and listening to this beautiful song, the light arises within to remove the obstacles in our mind and body.

What Is A Raga?
A raga is a musical scale that carries spiritual vibrations. Each raga has a unique sound, quality and energy. There are thousand of ragas the can be played at different times of the day and to invoke different deities. Each deity has its own unique effect on our mind, yet they flow from the same loving energy that is universal. Whenever we invoke the divine through raga and mantra, we are connecting our individual soul with the universal soul bringing purity, inner peace, contentment, joy and wisdom.
Calming, meditative, relaxing, and uplifting are some ways people 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.
Are you experiencing stress, anxiety, fear, illness, uncertainty? If so, this negative energy impacts your mind and subtle frequencies to go out of harmony, out of tune. Much like a guitar that needs tuning regularly, so do our minds. Mantra music awakens the vibrations of peace that are deeply embedded in you, and you come back in tune with nature and feel relaxed, content and happy. Magic!
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 innate 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!
