about

Please note that the money used to purchase this album will go directly to the artist. Please support your artist directly by purchasing through bandcamp at the artist's chosen price and not the undercut value that amazon, Itunes and other outlets have set.

Thank you,
Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda.

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: Klim Krishnaya/I Wanna Thank You-Live in Encinitas, CA 2016
Klim Krishnaya Govindaya
Gopijana Vallabhaya (Svaha)

I want to thank you for this life, I want to thank you for this love
And all that it brings

Translation:
"I offer oblations unto Krishna, Gopijanavallabha, the beloved of the gopis."
The Gopala-mantra is cintamani, the sweetest of the secret mantras. It manifests Krishna and induces that unique vraja-madhurya-rasa (sweet nectarian love) to flow in the heart,
As described in the Brahma-samhita, the primary purpose of the Gopala-mantra is to make the soul chase after Krishna, the all-attractive Lord of the gopis. However, because it contains the kama-bija (the seed of desire) the Gopala-mantra can also satisfy material or spiritual desires. In Goloka Vrndavana or for a pure devotee the kama-bija fulfills spiritual desires for Krishna's loving service. When the same kama-bija is reflected in the material world, it satisfies material desires.
Track Name: Closer to You/Jai Jagadambe-Live in Sebastopol, CA 2016
Lyrics:
The seasons come and they go, changing over time.
The leaves will grow and fall, the cycles of life.
But you are the constant, ever in my life.
Guiding me on.

The thought of you brings so much joy.
The thought of you brings me home.
The thought of you brings me to my knees.
Knowing there's so much more.

ch.

How may I serve you more.
How may I love you more.
How may I be closer to you.

vs.

You are the wind, that presses against my sails.
The stars that Shine bright, through the thickest veils.
You are this vessel, carrying me along the way.
Ever towards my heart.

ch.

How may I serve you more.
How may I love you more.
How may I be closer to you.

May our intellect (Dhiyo) bear (Dhimahi) that Supreme Consciousness which embodies and protects the vital-spiritual energies (Bhur), eliminates suffering (Bhuvah), embodies happiness (Svah), and that (Tat) self-luminous divine brilliance and ultimate creative source (Savitur), the best of the best, most virtuous (Varenyam).

Mantra: Om Bhur Bhuva Svah Tat Savitur Varenyam Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi Dhiyo yo Nah Prachodyat

May our intellect (Dhiyo) bear (Dhimahi) that Supreme Consciousness which embodies and protects the vital-spiritual energies (Bhur), eliminates suffering (Bhuvah), embodies happiness (Svah), and that (Tat) self-luminous divine brilliance and ultimate creative source (Savitur), the best of the best, most virtuous (Varenyam).

Track Name: Radhe-Live in Ashland, OR 2016
Achutya Kesava, Sri Radha Madhava,
Jaya Jaya Vrndavan-esh-wari

Radha Tapta Kancana, Sri Gaurangi!
Radhe Radhe Vrndavan-eshwari

Vrsabhanu Sute Devi, Devi
Pranamami Hari Hari Hari

Radhe Radhe Radhe Radhe! Radhe Radhe Radhe Radhe!

Govinda Radhe Radhe Sham,
Gopala Radhe Radhe Sham
Krishna, Krishna, Govinda Krishna!
Radhe, Radhe, Govinda Radhe!

Translation:
I Salute You O Acyuta (the Infallible One),
I Salute You O Keshava (The lord of creation, preservation, and dissolution)
Radha Madhava: Krishna is the lover of Radha
Vrndavan-eshwari: Queen of Vrndavan

O Srimati Radharani, I offer my respects to You whose bodily complexion is like molten gold.
O Goddess, You are the queen of Vrndavan. You are the daughter of King Vrishabhanu, and are very dear to Lord Krishna.

"Radharani, You are so dear to Krsna. So we offer our respectful obeisances unto You." Radharani can deliver Krsna. She is so great a devotee, the emblem of maha-bhagavata. Even Krsna cannot understand the quality of Radharani's devotion. Although Krsna saysvedaham samatitani - "I know everything" - He fails to understand Radharani. Radharani is so great.
