This is album is part of the double disc "Live at the Altar of Love". The two albums were recorded at the same time at the LakshmiAnanda Yoga Space. This disc is composed primarily of music that Ananda wrote with additional lyrics and singing by Jaya Lakshmi. The same group of musicians was also used for this album. Special thanks to Simrit Kaur for joining us on the 'Wahe Guru' track.
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. They are routinely in their daily practice for merging with Ananda (Bliss of the Divine). The two of them collaborated on each others albums along with their fantastic band to create these bhakti-filled magical albums.
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),
Ananda and Jaya Lakshmi
"The beautiful Kirtan of Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda reflects years of devotional practice, a passion for Mantra and music, and a deep love for each other." Jai Uttal
"From the heart-opening strains of their sumptuous traditional kirtan to the wild blend of contemporary rhythms and sounds they call Kirtronica, Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda's divine harmonies will keep you riding waves of devotion from the meditation hall to the dance floor, and most everyplace in between.
