REQUEST AN MP3 OF THE TRACK
I ask people to donate to the various charities mentioned above,
to proliferate “additional donations”, rather than asking for confirmation of previous donations made.
Many thousands of hours and a vast amount of money has been invested
in the production of my music, for which I ask nothing more than for people to make specific donations to the selected charities.
Having followed one of the above links and made a donation please send a copy of the receipt to me by email at : firstname.lastname@example.org
to receive an MP3.
If you are a Monastic or unable to donate, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for your generosity and encouragement. I pray that with your continued support and prevailing conditions, I will be afforded the privilege of making Dharma music for many years to come. 🙏🏻
My Very Best Wishes To You All
My good friend Prashant Varma, director of Dzongsar Khyentse's Deer Park institute in Bir India ask me to create a contemporary sounding track featuring the incredible voice of Indian vocalist Vidya Rao singing the Dependant Origination Dharani in Sanskrit.
How could I refuse?
I wanted to capture all of Vidya's devotion to the Mantra In the most natural way possible and so decided to record her voice without any backing music at all. This is not the conventional method of recording vocals but what it did was ensure that any music I wrote would have to honour and compliment what Vidya sang, there by preserving the integrity of her performance. Although this has proved to be a very slow way of working I believe that the authenticity of Vidya's performance has been captured in the final result.
And sincerely hope you agree.
ALL PROFITS FROM THIS TRACK GO TO THE DEERPARK INSTITUTE
