Album Notes
I've always been interested in music that creates a space that is conducive to contemplation, sensitivity and heartfulness. I am honored that so many have accepted "Ahimsa" as a tool for creating such a space in their lives - for personal healing and processing, for Yoga, for meditative practice, and for breaking down barriers that appear to keep us apart.

"Ahimsa" is the Sanscrit term for "harmlessness." Gandhi used the term referring to the spiritual path of nonviolence. As someone who has always been inspired by Gandhi and King's example, I felt that this word and concept was consistent with the intent and character of the music. It is peaceful, while it is thought provoking. It is interesting melodically and harmonically, while creating a very peaceful feeling tone.

I am someone who believes that music is a possible way to create peace in a real and practical way. Music is capable of shifting our state of mind faster than any other mode of communication. So this is my little contribution to creating a peaceful space in your personal life. I am hopeful that this sense of peace can extend to everyone you come in contact with. Wouldn't that be an extraordinary outcome?

May your life dance in graceful, loving kindness.

The most beautiful and calming piano meditation music I have ever heard.
The day after the terrorism attacks, I listened to your CD for at least six hours. I just kept it playing over and over. It is some of the most beautiful and calming piano meditation music I have ever heard.

A masterpiece in which we all should delight...
Ben plays the strains and arrows of the world away. His latest rendering, Ahimsa, has the power to carry us to a space that is quiet and calm...a masterpiece in which we all should delight.

The Musical Antidote for a Stressful World
In a world that each day brings more and more conflict, and stress, Ben Dowling's music comes to bestow a peaceful gift in the ears, hearts and souls of its listeners.

How much better it would be for doctors to prescribe the musical bliss of Ahisma rather than Prozac.
