I have always found Shindhu’s arrangements of Sri Chinmoy’s music particularly conducive to meditation. There is a beautiful yearning quality to their music which always lifts my aspiration, and helps me yearn for The Supreme more deeply in my meditation. I hope you like this selection of my favourites.View all tracks »
