Last modified February 27, 2012

A special recording of traditional prayers and mantras from India sung by Sri Chinmoy during a live performance.

Traditional prayers and mantras of India.

In November 1994, Sri Chinmoy composed melodies to some of his favorite Sanskrit and Bengali prayers and mantras. These sacred utterances of various spiritual figures down through the ages have been a source of deep inspiration to Sri Chinmoy since his childhood.

In this recording, Sri Chinmoy, sings seventeen of these songs, accompanying himself on the harmonium. Also included are his spontaneous comments on the significance of some of the songs. Recorded outdoors at the Aspiration-Ground, New York on November 27th, 1994.

The cover photo was taken in Burma on January 7th, 1995.
