Deva Premal & the Gyuto Monks of Tibet have created a powerful mantra meditation album, offering 8 Tibetan mantras chanted 108 times each.
As Deva notes, Tibetan Mantras for Turbulent Times "originally arose out of a desire of mine to chant mantras together with Gyuto monks – those precious souls who have devoted their whole lives to the practice.Their incredible voices and the intense vibration they create, infused with such a deep immersion into the holy sound, has always inspired and intrigued me."
Deva and the Gyuto Monks are joined by Grammy Award Winner David Darling on cello, Kit Walker (producer of Love is Space and Embrace) on keyboards, and Nepalese bansuri maestro Manose, enhancing the deep silence that the mantras carry and creating a potent sound healing journey.
Notes from Deva and from the Gyuto Monks on how to best use these mantras for a personal meditation practice, as well as their meanings, are posted in the Lyrics & Chords section.
All proceeds of the CD are directed to the Gyuto Monastery in Dharamsala, India; the Phowa Project; and Veggiyana.
"In its most notable forms, the power that sound transmits is heart-opening, ground-shaking, and heartbreaking. Mantra--divine energy encapsulated in sound--may be the surest quickest way to 'melt the heart'....Blending Western female 'flow' with the voices of the Gyoto monks, who dedicate their lives to practice, this CD is intense, musical, and intriguing." -Debi Winston-Buzil: Yoga Chicago.com

A 50 minute meditation on the beautiful Moola Mantra is a celebration of sacred male and female energy.
Deva Premal offers a 50 minute meditation on the beautiful Moola Mantra - a celebration of sacred male and female energy - discovered by Deva and Miten during their inspirational visits to the Oneness University, in Chennai, India.
Produced by Ben Leinbach, the Moola Mantra meanders like a sacred river through a lush landscape of sitars, bansuri, dotar, grand piano, tablas, cello and string quartet, with Deva's golden voice leading the way, flowing finally into an ocean of silence.
Special guest musicians include: Miten (vocals), Jai Uttal (dotar), Manose (bansuri), Debopriyo Sarkar (tablas), Kit Walker (piano), Benjy Wertheimer (esraj), Peter van Gelder (sitar), and Moses Sedler (cello).
"Even after repeated listenings, I find that The Moola Mantra feeds my soul in ways that only my heart understands, and receives my highest recommendation." -Steve Ryals, Ezine

Embrace finds Deva at the height of her art, expressing the ancient wisdom of mantra through a contemporary musical vision.
Embrace finds this best-selling singer at the height of her art, expressing the ancient wisdom of mantra through a contemporary musical vision.
Deva Premal's gorgeous voice, rich and assured, floats above a cool, sensual groove provided by some of today's finest world fusion artists.
Produced by Miten and Kit Walker (Walela, Kitaro, Pagan Love Orchestra), Embrace features a rich, elegantly developed musical dynamic, due in large part to virtuoso performances by such top flight musicians as Jai Uttal (dotar and distinctive vocals), Kit Walker (keyboards, grand piano, Hammond B3), Nepali native Manose (bansuri), Miten (vocals, guitar), Ty Burhoe (a star protégé of Zakir Hussain) and Marquinho Brasil (assorted exotic hand percussion).
"The high chanteuse of chant, Deva, is a pillar of originality in the grand garden of Indian music. You might say she's to Sanskrit Mantras what Enya is to Celtic music. Her smooth soulful voice, which resides in the lower octaves, haunts atmospheric, lightly rhythmic, ethereal soundscapes skillfully crafted by her partner Miten.
"Together they take listeners on a journey into the depths of the soul that doesn't forget to stop at the heart. The music's easy on the ears, spiritually provocative and contains enough mass appeal to make even the yoga-phobic stir. Throw in a duet with Jai Uttal (Om Ram Ramaya) and you have an album that will get anyone's chakras in an uproar."
Love Is Space, Deva Premal’s second solo album, contains 6 sacred mantras, including Gatè Gatè, the heart sutra of Buddha.
Love Is Space by Deva Premal is calming yoga music featuring mantras and chanting for healing, massage and relaxation.
Glowing with an inspiring, heart-centered passion, Love Is Space sets a new musical standard for mantra singing and is the perfect instrument for creating a calm, impenetrable oasis on the massage table, meditation cushion or yoga mat. Deva Premal’s gorgeous voice floats above graceful arrangements on guitar, piano, harmonium, flute and light percussion, bringing these ancient mantras to life.
Love Is Space, Deva Premal's second solo album, contains six sacred mantras from India, including "Gatè Gatè", the heart sutra of Buddha, and "Om Mane Padme Hum", the ancient Tibetan invocation. Also included is the exquisitely performed West African chant, "Idè Werê Werê".
This beautiful recording continues in the footsteps of Deva Premal's classic debut CD, The Essence.

Miten created Songs For The Inner Lover as a soundtrack for the love and life experiences we all share.
Miten created Songs For The Inner Lover as a soundtrack for the love and life experiences we all share. Insightful lyrics and refreshingly simple, melodic arrangements examine the many faces of love: from its manifestation on the physical plane and the master-disciple relationship to longing for meaningful companionship and the inner dialogues we conduct with ourselves.
Graced by Deva Premal's vocal harmonies, Miten’s songs take flight, seamlessly blending male/female energy to reveal the healing balance that comes through true connection with the self.
"Songs For The Inner Lover is a powerful and passionate work of love. The beautiful music of Miten and Deva Premal truly speaks to the heart and will move your soul. Both Sage and I have been blessed to have the music touch our lives." -Anthony Robbins, Author, Awaken the Giant Within and Unlimited Power
"Miten has a vibe like he's played some of the same local dives as Leonard Cohen and Kris Kristofferson, but he's also a troubadour who has seen the light." -DailyOM

For mantra meditation and counting prayers. Authentic, fairly traded and ethically produced.
Often referred to as beads, rudrakshas are actually seeds that grow inside of a blueberry like pod.
The name rudraksha (pronounced rud-ruck-sha) stems from Hindu mythology and means “the eyes of Shiva.”
It’s believed that the God meditated on the welfare of mankind and emerged crying tears of compassion. The tears, upon hitting the Earth, crystallized to form the trees that grow rudrakshas.
Rudrakshas are believed to increase clarity and general awareness, calm the central nervous system, help quiet the mind, and free you from negative thought.
Rudraksha beads are sacred and should be treated with respect and care. Wash them once in a while to remove dirt and dust. Oil them with coconut or sandalwood oil to preserve them. They will turn darker with your own body oil when wearing them. This is the desired effect. Take them off when you sleep.
Our beads are authentic, sustainably harvested, fairly traded and ethically produced.
