Album Notes
Album Notes*:
The mahamantra, the great mantra, Om Namah Shivaya, is a throb of your own divine Self. You are the Auspicious One, Shiva, unbounded in your power, love and ecstasy. That is your true nature, your true home and refuge. Kundalini Shakti gives you the sublime form of mantra, opening the way for you to abide once again in the truth of your radical freedom.

Through chanting and meditation, become absorbed in Om Namah Shivaya, watching as the power of the mantra transforms mind and body into perfect vehicles for the ecstatic One already residing within you as you. The mantra will empower you to live with the boundless wisdom, love, and creativity that radiate from your true Self.

This album includes brief meditation instruction (track 1), meditative chants of Om Namah Shivaya (track 2), and silent tracks for timing your meditation (track 3 & 4). Meditation ends with the ringing of a beautiful Tibetan gong (track 5), followed by a few rounds of the Om Namah Shivaya chant to ease your consciousness back into the day (track 6). The Om Namah Shivaya chant on this album is the one that so many people attending Lawrence's programs and retreats love for its power to ease the mind and plunge one into the depths of pure Consciousness.

Track 7 is a chant that combines mantras from Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, Islam and Judaism. These mantras are:
• Om Namah Shivaya – “Om, I bow with reverence to the auspicious One” – Invokes the all-embracing, omnipresent One, the Divine within everyone, everything - Hindu
• Om Kali Durge Ma – “Om, Kali Durge Mother of all” – invokes the living presence of Great Goddess Kali, mother of the universe, all forms are born from Her – Hindu
• Om Mani Padme Hum – “Om, Hail the jewel in the lotus” – Invokes the living presence of the Buddha within you as your true nature – Tibetan Buddhist.
• Om Tare Tam Soha – “Om, Tara, mother of all Buddhas, resounding in the heart, so may it be” - Red Tara mantra invoking Tara, Mother of all Buddhas and her boundless compassion which manifests as drawing to the seeker all that’s needed to overcome obstacles – Tibetan Buddhist.
• La ilaha illallah – “There is no deity other than God” – Invokes the awareness of the universal One – Islam.
• Ein Od Milvado – “There is none but Him” – Invokes the sublime non-dual awareness that all is God, everything is God – Jewish.
• Kyrie Eléison – “Lord, have mercy” – Invokes the boundless compassion of the One – Christian.
• Sancta Maria Mater Dei – “Holy Mary, Mother of God” – Invokes the living presence of the Divine feminine as Mary, Mother of God – Christian.

The last track (8) on the album is an extended version of the slow Om Namah Shivaya chant that allows you to become more deeply absorbed in this vibration of the Divine within.

The deep power of mantra arises from beyond the mind, beyond thoughts, beyond words. The ordinary mind mistakes mantra as just another thought form and thus doesn’t recognized its true potency. The real power of mantra is the Consciousness of the Self, Kundalini Shakti, vibrating into form and manifesting the sound body of the Infinite which the mind can then perceive as mantra. Take hold of the mantra and you take hold of the Divine. Absorb the mind in mantra and you dissolve back into the One, the Source of all. Know the true nature of mantra and you will know what it is to merge into the ocean of Love that is your Divine Self.

The word “mantra” means “that which protects.” It protects one from the ignorance of one’s true nature and from continuously acting out of that ignorance, creating countless life-times of karma. Become absorb in the mantra and know your radical freedom, your true nature as the Self of all. You are what you seek. The ancient Vedas proclaim: Tat twam asi! Thou art That!

The translations of the mantras only hint at their true meaning and power. The meaning of the words are the least important aspect of a mantra. The Consciousness that is invoked and transmitted through the mantra is what truly initiates and sustains awakening to the One. Fully enter into the vehicle of mantra and discover where it takes you. You can learn more about the power of mantra and mantra practices in Lawrence’s books, Awakening Kundalini: The Path To Radical Freedom and The Soul’s Journey: Guidance From The Divine Within.

Perfect for meditation
This is an amazing collection for meditation - listening to the mantras really helps my meditation, and the chanting is soothing and transcendent. I love the versatility of the tracks - having the gong, the mantra tracks, and the tracks of silence is really helpful when I need to change things up. Sometimes I need something a little different depending on the day, so I really appreciate the variety of options. Highly recommended!
