"This is by far the most beautiful CD I have ever heard. I listen to a lot of sacred mantra music and I've struck gold with this one. It oozes with Paramahansaji's heartfelt devotion to the Divine, and Michael Dunn's voice just rolls upon your ears like pure and sacred water. I take this CD with me everywhere I go!"

More about Michael Dunn...

Michael Dunn brings to the ancient art of kirtan a devotional intensity and simplicity that many have found profoundly moving. In India they say that the name of God is God. "Various are Thy Names, O Lord. In each and every name, Thy power resides," wrote the great bhakti Sri Chaitanya. Chanting from the heart opens the door to communion with the Divine, and can create a wave of joy that carries one through the day.

For nearly a decade, Michael Dunn has led kirtan meditations at the world-famed Lake Shrine meditation center founded by the great world-teacher Paramahansa Yogananda in Pacific Palisades, California. After an award-winning fifteen year career in theatre and music, Michael heeded an inner need for a spiritual sabbatical and began work as a vegetarian cook at the Lake Shrine ashram, immersing himself in meditation and chanting.

Michael's beginnings as a kirtan artist can be traced to an earthquake. The 1994 Los Angeles temblor left the Lake Shrine short of a kirtan leader (who chose to move to a more stable tectonic plate) and the head monk asked Michael to learn the harmonium. Years of leading chants and meditations followed, culminating in a pilgrimage to India for the Maha Kumbha Mela in 2001. There he learned chants from the monks of Yogoda Satsanga Society at Dakshineswar, and at a Himalayan retreat in Dwarahat, near the cave of Mahavatar Babaji. This pilgrimage also planted the seeds of what would become the CD, "Adoration - Chants for Meditation."

A bumpy bus ride from New Delhi to Rhaniket in the Himalayan foothills was made more bearable for some thirty pilgrims by the music of Michael's newly purchased harmonium, and by the joyous chanting of the Divine Name. Fellow pilgrim (and audio engineer) Tom Murphy was inspired to offer his services and his long-established L.A. studio (Track Record) to record an album of chants. The interval between inspiration and manifestation can be lengthy on our planet, but the tree has finally borne fruit! Michael Dunn is now featured at chanting events throughout Southern California. It is our hope that these chants will find a place in your heart.

Spiritually powerful - magnetic!
This artist sings to God from his heart. I was instantly moved to tears of joy the first time I listened to it. The sutras interspersed with the chants are beautifully performed and transport one into a transcendent, meditative state. This is a wonderful CD.

Great for inspiration and meditation.
A mix of often heard and lesser known chants from Paramahansa Yogananda's life-work, makes this an inspirational collection to cherish.
