It is true that the energy surrounding the Dalai Lama is so pure and positive that it harbours a strong sense of peace and serenity within oneself. Now imagine if this same energy is transcended into a soothing song?
For the very first time, the Dalai Lama has released a music album that blends his peaceful mantras and teachings in equally peaceful music. Shedding light over the same, his music producer, Junelle Kunin, says, “With Inner World, the truth is, I feel like it was [the Dalai Lama’s] idea. It appeared in my heart from somewhere, but ultimately, I think it’s his.” It is released to honour his 85th birthday celebrations on July 6th, 2020.
When asked why he accepted the request to make the album, he answered, “The very purpose of my life is to serve as much as I can.” He also added, “Music can help people in a way that I can’t.”
Here’s the album tracklist
- One Of My Favorite Prayers
- The Buddha
- Ama La feat. Anoushka Shankar
Kunin has previously hosted the Dalai Lama in Australia and New Zealand a few times, and she is close to his closest monks. But despite their friendship, she still felt a bit nervous about approaching him. She says, “I had this idea and I couldn’t let it go… My intuition kept saying – You have to do this. You have to ask him about it.”
This album will help particularly those people who struggle with emotional stress.
It’s time to get one-on-one with the harbinger of peace, and let his music touch your soul!
