Last modified February 13, 2013

Sharanagata Hammerl from Salzburg, Austria, sings “Ashar Age Dibo Tomai“, a song composed by Sri Chinmoy. Sharanagata’s beautiful singing, reminiscent of ancient Gregorian chanting, is accompanied by musical arrangements by his son Parichayaka.

The full CD “Prayerfully I take Shelter” is now available on Radio Sri Chinmoy here.

Notes on recording
by Kamalakanta Nieves

“Dear listeners, this is a track excerpted from Sharanagata’s recent CD, “Prayerfully I take Shelter”.

Words fail me when trying to describe Sharanagata’s singing. It is so true, so vibrant with energy, and coming from such a deep place in his heart, it leaves me speechless. His singing is, in my opinion, of the highest order, both in its musical quality and in its spiritual content. He sings with devotion, with simplicity, and with a beautiful tone! What more can one ask from a singer? In this CD, he offers us a wonderful interpretation of Sri Chinmoy’s songs.

The arrangements by Parichayaka are a great tribute to Sharanagata’s singing. Parichayaka has been able to capture, and even enhance, the beauty and simplicity of Sharanagata’s singing.

Our gratitude to Sharanagata and his family (Parichayaka, Behala, Ghantika, Chahida and Ankurika) for this soulful offering.”

  1. Thank you, Bhakati, for your kind comments. Sri Chinmoy’s music embodies his meditation, flooded with all the divine qualities of light, peace and delight. It is a blessing for me to be involved with this wonderful project.

  2. Kamalakanta,
    this “posting”….what else can i call it?…offers me hope, and consolation in a world that sometimes seems blind and deaf to all the peace, the tenderness, the beauty that Sri Chinmoy offered to all of us.
    I have no words either, only gratitude tears
    Thank you for all your dedicated service-light. in Guru’s eternal heart, Bhakati.
