Please note that the money used to purchase this album will go directly to us, the artists. Please support us directly by purchasing through our website at our chosen price and not the undercut value that amazon, Itunes and other outlets have set. Of course more is always welcome. Streaming platforms such as Spotify, Pandora, Youtube, etc are fabulous ways to listen and find out about artists, but are very unsupportive financially. Please support devotional art as you feel its' true value is. Thank you, Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda.
This is album is part of the double disc "Live at the Altar of Love". The two albums were recorded at the same time in their large basement/temple in Eugene they called the Lakshmi-Ananda Mandir.
This disc is composed primarily of music that Jaya Lakshmi wrote with additional lyrics and singing by Ananda. The same group of musicians was also used for this album.
These albums are a collaboration of music that represent some of their deepest, most intimate connection with the transcendental love and beauty of the divine. They represent their soul's journey and personal longing for the Divine.
The intention for making these albums was to share with all beings a very intimate way of merging with the divine. Music that would be healing, meditative, heartfelt and timeless. They mix English, Sanskrit and Gurmuki as a bridge for all those who have mysteriously been called to Yoga or teachings from India. The English connects our hearts and the ancient languages align our frequency.
"Our prayer is that this music will be a gem that lights your way on this path towards light, love and truth. With the utmost love and gratitude, we present this triumph of work and share with you the deepest parts of our souls."
Namaste (I see the divine in you and that reflection within myself) and Sat Nam (True Nature),
Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda
