AUM BHOOR BHUWAH SWAHA, TAT SAVITUR VARENYAM BHARGO DEVASAYA DHEEMAHI DHIYO YO NAHA PRACHODAYAT

Oh God! Thou art the Giver of Life, Remover of pain and sorrow, The Bestower of happiness, Oh! Creator of the Universe, May we receive thy supreme sin-destroying light, May Thou guide our intellect in the right direction.

Deva Premal and Miten met in India in 1990 and soon began a journey into love and creativity that has taken their inspiring blend of song, mantra and meditation to a worldwide audience. They have released a string of acclaimed CDs with international sales of nearly one million, and their concerts and ecstatic chant workshops are met with rave reviews throughout Europe, Australia, South America, Canada and the United States.

Their music transcends all the usual musical boundaries, with fans including rock icon Cher, who featured one of Deva’s most popular chants, the Gayatri Mantra, on her Farewell Concert Tour;

World renowned author and motivational coach Tony Robbins, and even His Holiness The Dalai Lama who, after hearing Deva & Miten sing for a private audience, exclaimed, “Beautiful music, beautiful…!”

Best selling author Eckhart Tolle notes:
“As you listen to the music of Deva and Miten, the sacred space that lies beyond the mind emerges naturally and effortlessly. Pure magic.”

German-born Deva Premal is a classically trained musician who grew up singing mantras as bedtime songs. Her mother plays viola da gamba and her father was an artist and a devotee of the spiritual path, including Zen and Yoga. He taught himself Sanskrit and Deva notes that “When my mother was pregnant with me, their welcome was to sing the Gayatri Mantra throughout the pregnancy.

“As I grew up we continued to chant the Gayatri Mantra together regularly before sleep. I didn’t really know what I was singing… and why. I just did it because I was told to. It wasn’t until much later that I came to appreciate these precious times.”

As a teenager, she moved away from the confines of both her classical music training in voice, violin and piano, and the mantra practice, and began to explore on her own. At age 11, her search brought her to become a disciple of the enlightened mystic Osho, and later, she went to the ashram in India to begin studies in body work, including massage, shiatsu and cranio-sacral therapies.

India, My Love – Deva Premal (Password CD)

Deva talks about the essence of the mystic traditions from India, that inspired the music on her new CD “Password”.

Deva Premal – Mere Gurudev

MERE GURUDEV

Mere Gurudev, charnon par
sumana shraddhaa ke arpit hai
Tere hee dena hai jo hai.
Wahi tujha ko samarapita hai

Na priti hai pratiti hai,
na hi puja ki shakti hai
Na priti hai pratiti hai,
na hi puja ki shakti hai

Meraa yaha man, meraa yaha tan,
meraa kan kan samarapita hai.

Tuma hee ho bhaav men mere,
vicharo mein, pukaro mein.
Banaale yantra ab mujhko roere
saravatra samarapita hai.

OM NAMAH SHIVAYA MANTRA – MEANING and AUDIO
Om Namah Shivaya Mantra in Sanskrit

The Om Namah Shivaya mantra or chant consists of six syllables – om, na, mah, shi, vaa, ya. When chanted properly, each syllable activates certain energy centers within our bodies as we meditate upon the energy of Lord Shiva. Shiva is often referred to as the part of the Hindu trinity which has dominion over death and destruction. Shiva is also considered the greatest of the yogis, the lord of meditation, and the lord of all that is mystic and mysterious in hindu practices. Legend has it that the holy river Ganges (or Ganga) is in fact a representation of Lord Shiva’s long hair.

Some texts refer to the five letters as the forms of Shiva – Na-gendra (one who wears a garland of snakes), Ma-ndakini Salila (one who is bathed by the water of the Ganges), Shi (the supreme Lord), Va-shishta (one who is praised by the sages like Vashishta), and Ya-ksha (one who takes the form of Yaksha).
ॐ नम: शिवाय:

Summary of the Om Namah Shivaya Mantra

Om or Aum is the pranava or seed mantra of all mantras. The two syllables na- and mah- can be translated as “I humbly bow to you”. The three syllables shi-vaa-ya invoke Lord Shiva and all his energies to bless us and lead us to the highest state of peace and meditation. The mantra should ideally be chanted twice a day (morning and evening) for 108 times each. The two words, namah and shivaya, are also referred to as the panchakshara (five letter) chant. It is said that those who chant these five holy letters while meditating on Lord Shiva will be blessed by visions of Shiva – the Lord of the yogis.

Deva Premal’s groundbreaking new release features an extended presentation of the beautiful Moola Mantra, which was received by Deva and Miten during a meditation retreat at the Oneness University in Chennai, India.

It honours the divine light in every living being and celebrates the dance of female/ male energies as they merge into union.

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).
