ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The mantras and traditional ritual chants on this CD are an homage to the heritage of Tibet. They provide an extraordinary and unique method for calming the mind and opening the heart. In the Vajrayana Buddhist path this is known as “liberation through hearing”. Generally, whenever mantras are recited, at that moment deity and meditation are combined together. Deity, mantra and meditative absorption are central to the practice of the Vajrayana Buddhism.

This album brings together Lama Tenzin Sangpo’s rich and melodious chanting of traditional Buddhist mantras and prayers with classical music beautifully played by the Orchester der Kulturen.

Lama Tenzin Sangpo sings the melodies derived from both his own lineage and other traditions, with his deep and exceptionally touching bass voice. The Orchester der Kulturen accompanies the mantras with a broad range of musical instruments from around the world. Altogether about 25 musicians from more than 20 different nations from near and far, assembled for this fundraising project. The sacred chants, accompanied by classical instruments like violins, celli, bass-viol, double bass, horns, flutes, harp and guitars, as well as “world” instruments such as duduk, erhu, didgeridoo, many types of percussion, Alphorn, Hackbrett and zither, as well as overtone singing, all worked together to create a unique multi-textural blend of music.

Under the diligent guidance of composer Adrian Werum, who created beautiful arrangements to accompany the traditional Tibetan chants, Lama Tenzin Sangpo and the orchestra collaborated brilliantly during the few concentrated days they spent together recording the CD. The biggest challenge that faced the Western orchestra was to play in time with the unusual and sometimes non-metered rhythms of the Tibetan ritual chants.

All revenues from Lama Tenzin’s new CD will go toward the rebuilding of Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling Monastery in Boudhanath, Nepal, after the disastrous earthquakes that hit the country in April 2015, as well as to help provide food, shelter, and education for the monastery’s 340 resident monks. Planning to rebuild the monastery and nunnery has already begun under Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche´s direct guidance, but further support is urgently needed for materials, transport, labor, equipment and artists. The challenges of retrofitting, demolishing and rebuilding of the temples are huge. More details on the damage, reconstruction, and fundraising can be found at the Shedrub Fund website.

Please rejoice wholeheartedly in the combined effort, patience and love of all participants who were engaged in this beneficial undertaking. Lama Tenzin Sangpo would like to dedicate the merit generated by these sacred chants to the well-being of all sentient beings, in particular to the victims of the earthquakes. Likewise, he wishes dearly that you may derive joy from listening to the mantras.

“May the enlightened speech of mantras pervade all the three thousand universes just like stones dropped into water create circular waves continuously.“
