Superb 'yoga of sound' cd to compliment meditation., 18 April 2011
These beautifully crafted tracks are built around six mantras from the Bhakti or devotional tradition derived from the sacred Hindu ragas (music that nurtures the souls relationship with the divine). They make for very enjoyable listening, especially at night, but are best perhaps used as a teaching tool to explore the 'yoga of sound', when used with the excellent book of the same title. I can't recommend this cd enough if you would like to deepen and expand your use of mantra to deepen meditation practice.
Russill Paul is an inspired musician who uses sacred sound to enrich and deepen his spiritual practice. His deep Christian spirituality developed as a young benedictine monk with the guidance of the late Dom Bede Griffiths in Southern India. He is a major force for enriching Christianity by drawing upon the traditions and experience of great world faiths. His reverance for the sacred and his vast musical talent combine to create truly uplifting sounds.
