The Meaning
of Soul

“This album has been a long time in the making. Years ago I stepped into my first yoga class in Santa Monica with Govindas. Fortunately, as my first yoga teacher he introduced me to the powerful practice of mantra, chanting and kirtan. Just as a yoga pose purifies the body, and a mantra purifies the mind, kirtan purifies the heart! The intention behind this project has been to take the power of Sanskrit mantra and put it into a ‘stadium rock n roll’ format because for me, they are both larger than life!! Whether you are practicing yoga, meditating, celebrating or taking a road trip I hope that this music will uplift your experience….”
