These songs were recorded from their 2016 west coast spring tour. It is a compilation of the best songs from 5 different shows and correlates with a live DVD/BluRay release of these performances. Sonically stunning, the recordings capture the ecstatic energy that this group consistently delivers. It also features the spacious opening for sweet devotion that pours through these two. And absolute must have for those lovers of chant, heart songs and healing connection with the divine.

"What a gift these live albums are.. with the musical engineering supporting the energy and spirit! These selections evoke strong memories of group celebration and are truly life-affirming. I am listening to these at the end of a 7 day retreat filled with very hard spiritual work. So much appreciated. Namaste..." Marc Worthington (Fan)

Track Name: Ang Sung Wahe Guru/Love Like the Sun-Live in Santa Barbara, CA 2016
Poem by Hafiz:
Even after all this time, the sun never says to the earth, “You owe me.” Look what happens with a love like that, it lights up the entire sky.

English lyrics by Ananda Yogiji:
So make your love like the sun and shine down on everyone.

Mantra: Ang Sung Wahe Guru

The dynamic, loving energy of the Infinite Source of All is dancing within my every cell, and is present in my every limb. My individual consciousness merges with the Universal Consciousness. The Infinite Being, God, is with me and vibrates in every molecule and cell of my being.

More Information
• As Gurucharan Singh, director of training at the Kundalini Research Institute, writes, “This mantra expresses a universal truth. Repeating it creates a thought, which gradually guides the psyche to adjust itself. It reconnects every fragmented projection of the psyche, each separated part of the body, and synchronizes the finite sense of self to the Infinite Oneness. This act of rejoining the separated parts is the quintessential act of healing. Under attack, under war, under the pressures of fear, this meditation keeps us together, conscious, and ready to act. It brings the inner peacefulness that comes only from the touch and scope of spirit.”
Track Name: Mul Mantra-Live in Santa Barbara, CA 2016
Mantra: Ek ong kar, sat nam, karataa purakh, nirbho, nirvair.
Akaal moorat, ajoonee, saibhang, gur prasaad. Jap!
Aad such, jugaad such, Hai bhee such, Naanak hosee bhee such.

One Creator. Truth is His name. Doer of everything. Fearless, Revengeless, Undying, Unborn, Self-illumined, The Guru’s gift, Meditate! True in the beginning. True through all the ages. True even now. Oh, Nanak, it is forever true.

More Information:
The Mul Mantra translates as the root mantra from which a spiritual foundation is built. The Siri Guru Granth Sahib is based upon the concepts of the Mul Mantra. When speaking about the chanting of this mantra, Yogi Bhajan says, “The Mul Mantra is a fate killer. It removes the fate and changes the destiny to complete prosperity.”
Track Name: Altar of Love/Sat Nam Ji/Three Little Birds-Live in Sebastopol, CA 2016
All that I am, I offer at the altar of love. In sweet surrender.
Mantra meaning: Sat Nam Sat Nam Sat nam ji Wahe Guru Wahe Guru Wahe Guru ji ~ Sat (Truth) Nam (nature, name, identity) ji (soul) Wahe Guru (Ecstacy of oneness or great Guru)

True is my identity, Great is the Guru, the divine teacher who brings us from darkness to light. Oh soul, reside in the true nature of all things. Oh soul, reside in the ecstasy of cosmic consciousness.

Three Little Birds by Bob Marley

I went out this morning. Woke up with the rising sun. Three little birds perched by my door step. Singing sweet songs, a melody that's pure and true singing, this is my message to you. Singing don’t worry about a thing because every little thing is gonna be alright.
Track Name: Rakhay Rakhanhaar-Live in Ashland, OR 2016
Mantra: Rakhay rakhanhaar aap ubaariun
Gur kee pairee paa-eh kaaj savaariun
Hoaa aap dayaal manho na visaariun
Saadh janaa kai sung bhavjal taariun Saakat nindak dusht khin maa-eh bidaariun Tis saahib kee tayk naanak manai maa-eh Jis simrat sukh ho-eh saglay dookh jaa-eh


God Himself is looking out for us,
gives us the light, and takes care of our affairs. God is merciful, and never forgets us.
God guides us, giving us good people to help us. God does not allow hurt to come to us.
I take comfort in the thought of God.
When I remember God, I feel peaceful and happy and all my pain departs.

It is from the evening prayer (Rehiras), which adds energy to one’s being, and helps when you are physically weak or have limited wealth. It is a victory song which allows us to be guided by God’s graceful and merciful hand. It does away with the obstacles to fulfilling one’s destiny.

You are my life. You are my love. Everlasting peace. Healer of all. Bestower of faith. Bestower of all. I am at your feet, Beloved O Lord. Bring me to thy bliss. Bring me to thy love. The nectar of the naam, rests me in your arms. I am that I am and I am all Yours.

More Information:

• Guru is that which directs one from darkness (gu) to light (ru), from ignorance to the experience of one’s infinite nature. Guru Amar Das is the third of the Sikh Gurus and is the energy of grace and hope when there
is no hope. He lived from 1479 to 1574 and is said to embody generosity and equality.

• Guru Ram Das, his son-in-law, is the fourth of the Sikh Gurus and is the energy of miracles, healings, and blessings. He lived from 1534 until 1581 and is said to embody humility, loving service, and compassion. Ram means “servant of the Lord.”

• If you ask something of Guru Ram Das, he has to bring it to God for you. Give your worries to Guru Ram Das and let him take them to God. The God that rotates the Earth can certainly take care of your problems! This is the mantra for answered prayers.

• As Yogi Bhajan says, “Normally there is no power in the human but the power of prayer. And to do prayer, you have to put your mind and body together and then pray from the soul. ‘Ardas Bhaee’ is a mantra prayer. If you sing it, your mind, body, and soul automatically combine, and without
saying what you want, the need of the life is adjusted. That is the beauty of this prayer.”
Track Name: Bow to You
You're the Creator. You're the Sustainer. You're the Destroyer of all. You're my lover. You're my partner. You're my teacher of all.

You're the earth from which all things grow. You're the water, the eternal flow. You're the fire that glows on and on. You're the air I breath in for this song.

You're the sweetness that embraces me. You're the all pervading truth and beauty. You're the infinite love, bestower of grace. You're the compassion, the healing space.
