Amba Bhavani- Meditations in Chant
Tresca Weinstein, editor of the Yoga Bulletin of the Kripalu Yoga Teachers Association had this to say about Amba Bhavani: 'Kripalu's beloved songstress and senior faculty member, Bhavani, brings her trademark sensitivity and soulfulness to her renditions of three meditative and melodic yoga chants: Amba Bhavani ('Mother Bhavani'); Bhagawan Kripalu, a chant in Gujarati written for Swami Kripalu; and Hara, Hara Gurudeva, a traditional Sanskrit chant. An uplifting and peaceful backdrop for personal practice, deep relaxation, or yoga class, the hour-long CD features a host of fabulous musicians on backup, including Mark Kelso on keyboards, Malay Desai on tablas, Linda Worster on guitar, and Steve Gorn on bansuri flutes. The CD insert features the full text of the three chants in their original language as well as translations and transliterations. Get lost in Bhavani's sweet, clear voice and in the ancient verses, which seem to grow more powerful with each repetition.'
