Mother, I Bow to Thee is one of Sri Chinmoy’s earliest audio recordings. It was recorded in 1972 at the Sri Chinmoy Centre, Kingston, in Jamaica, West Indies. The recording was in response to his disciples requesting that his singing be recorded for listening at home, when they could not be with the Master. The initial recording was taken on vinyl and released as an LP. It was re-released in 2008 as a CD.

The tracks on this album include some of Sri Chinmoy’s earliest Bengali songs, such as Sundara hate and Na pari tomai. it also includes some classic Indian songs, composed by other musicians.

The third song, Bande Mataram, is by Bankim Chandra Chatterjee, the great Bengali writer. Song no. 6, Mayer Bijay Tomari Hok Jai is by Birendra Shekhar Palit. Song no. 7, Hiyar Dip Shikha, is by Lily Ghose, Sri Chinmoy’s  sister. Song no. 10, Ananda Man Chale Jai is by Sri Chinmoy’s dearest brother, Chittaranjan Ghose. All other songs are by Sri Chinmoy.

“Music will play a most important role in bringing about world oneness, for music embodies the Universal Heart, the Oneness-Heart. Music transcends the barriers of nations, nationalities and religions.”
