Meditative, blissful, ethereal, epic soundscapes and chants with soaring guitar lines and hauntingly triumphant vocals. These cosmic renditions of sacred Kundalini Yoga mantras will deliver deep transformation and inner awareness. The music ranges from delicate washes of guitar, gong and intertwined voices to epic and triumphant live loops of guitar led excursions with multi-layered chorus-like vocals. Each of the pieces builds and develops over the length of the mantra supporting the listener’s expanded inner journey and elevated consciousness.
Obviously a very devotional and personal outlet for the pair. The repetitive nature of the vocal chanting as well as their instruments are pretty tough to keep from inducing a sonic trance state… Slowly and simultaneously peeled back and pulled up around you like blankets, the whole experience is one of sympathetic flux and shift without a hint of instability.
Broadly, the album’s character evolves as it moves forward, such that while the intro could seem somnambulant, a few tremulous guitar notes forming a thin line back to reality, by the end, the listener is drawn outward in an almost triumphal re-entry to consciousness.
The ethereal soundscapes and blissful chants plant the flowers in your mind and then stick around for the crystal covered harvest. Mellifluous, melodious and imparting heavy vibrations from the beginning, the entrancing chant and instrumentation is a manifestation of the lucid awareness referenced in the album title. The beginning of “Ra Ma Da Sa” is the sonic equivalent of dawn and sunrise…Psychedelic particles sparkle among the stars in the following track.
1. Ra Ma Da Sa Sa Say So Hung
Sun, Moon, Earth, Impersonal Infinity, Totality of Infinity, Merging with the infinite, vibrating and real.
This mantra taps into the energies of the sun, moon, earth, and the Infinite Spirit to bring deep healing. It can be chanted to heal the self or to send healing energy to anyone you wish.
2. Ang Sang Wahe Guru
The dynamic, loving energy of the Infinite Source of All is with me, and vibrates in every molecule and cell of my being.
This mantra expresses a universal truth. Repeating it creates a thought, which gradually guides the psyche to adjust itself. It re-connects every fragmented projection of the psyche, each separated part of the body, and synchronizes the finite sense of self to the Infinite Oneness. This act of rejoining the separated parts is the quintessential act of healing. Under attack, under war, under the pressures of fear, this meditation keeps us together, conscious, and ready to act. It brings the inner peacefulness that comes only from the touch and scope of spirit.
~A Commentary by Gurucharan Singh, KRI Director of Training

5. Rakhay Rkhanhaar
Rakhay rakhanhaar aap ubaariun
Gur kee pairee paa-eh kaaj savaariun
Hoaa aap dayaal manho na visaariun
Saadh janaa kai sung bhavjal taariun
Saakat nindak dusht khin maa-eh bidaariun
Tis saahib kee tayk naanak manai maa-eh
Jis simrat sukh ho-eh saglay dookh jaa-eh
God Himself is looking out for us, gives us the light, and takes care of our affairs.
God is merciful, and never forgets us.
God guides us, giving us good people to help us.
God does not allow hurt to come to us.
I take comfort in the thought of God.
When I remember God, I feel peaceful and happy and all my pain departs.
These are the words of Guru Arjan, the 5th Sikh Guru, and are for complete protection. It is from the evening prayer (Rehiras), which adds energy to one’s being, and helps when you are physically weak or have limited wealth. It is a victory song which allows us to be guided by God’s graceful and merciful hand. It does away with the obstacles to fulfilling one’s destiny.
