From time immemorial, Satgurus have been founts of love and wisdom quenching the thirst of sincere seekers. The ancient Hindu scriptures say that invoking the blessings of one’s Guru draws his or her Grace through mystical and divine alchemy that quickens one’s progress on the path to enlightenment
One of the leading Carnatic (the classical music genre of South India) vocalists, Sri O. S. Arun, leads the responsive chanting with his celestial voice and palpable devotion making this CD a truly transcendental experience for all who wish to invoke the Satguru’s blessings. We humbly offer this garland of bhajans to our Satguru, His Holiness Sri Swami Satchidanandaji Maharaj.
