Experience the Calmness of Peace
Chanting is an ancient technique for focusing and uplifting the mind and soul into higher states of consciousness. Peace stems from inner calmness: the deep stillness of the mind – deeper than throught – free for all worries and anxieties. By practicing these chants, you can experience not only the calmness of peace, but its more dynamic aspects and an expansion of consciousness that can lift you into a higher state of being.
Peace Chants features chants written by Paramhansa Yogananda, author of the spiritual classic Autobiography of a Yogi, and Swami Kriyananda, a direct disciple of Yogananda. They are performed by Ananda Kirtan, a group of singers and musicians from Ananda—the world’s largest network of yoga communities. Chanting is accompanied by guitar, harmonium, kirtals, and tabla.
"Ananda Kirtan is a collective of chanters and singers from Ananda, the world’s largest network of yoga communities. Singing pieces sung by Paramhansa Yogananda and his direct disciple Swami Kriyananda, these songs capture the exuberant joy of spiritual bliss, and can help one develop a stronger connection with the divine. Listening to this recording, you feel as if they have been dropped in the center of a lively kirtan gathering, where all those around you are immersed in the sacred energy of the moment. Besides the song, the recording also features a setting-appropriate backdrop of harmonium and tabla, with a little guitar mixed included in places. Perfect for reaching higher states of consciousness, prayer and lifting the spirits."
