For nearly two decades, audiences around the world have flocked to concerts and collected the recordings of beloved mantra singers Deva Premal
Raised in Germany to the sound of mantras, Deva Premal met English musician Miten in India where both were studying meditation. Ever since, Deva's
mesmerizing, contemporary interpretations of Sanskrit mantras have been framed by the subtle and sensitive instrumental and vocal accompaniment of Miten
and in recent years also by Nepalese bansuri flute maestro Manose.
When Deva Premal & Miten recorded MANTRAS FOR PRECARIOUS TIMES in 2010, they saw it as the first in a series of albums offering
thoughtfully curated selections of mantras for particular applications in everyday life. It was followed in 2011 by the ground-breaking TIBETAN MANTRAS FOR TURBULENT TIMES, recorded with the Gyuto Monks - with whom a western woman had never before been afforded the
privilege of chanting and recording.
MANTRAS FOR LIFE
is the third recording in this popular series. Like its predecessors, the album includes chants to invoke very specific intentions - among them, prayers
for animal welfare; for the blessing of children; for poetry, music and learning; for perfect timing; for physical strength, and for the earth itself.
Based upon the tradition of Japa, a spiritual discipline centered upon the meditative repetition of mantra in cycles of 108 recitations, Deva Premal and
Miten invite the listener to join them in chant - and to utilize humanity's most powerful healing tool: the voice.
consider themselves flame carriers of a 5,000-year-old tradition, offering mantras in a most accessible way for the growing legions of listeners who are
adopting mantra meditation as a transformational discipline and a rewarding, applicable practice in their everyday lives.
