"As I always say, i am so lucky as a musician from the magic land of India, to have access to these sacred texts, being a sheer honor for me to compose music for such words of wisdom and inspiration discovered by sages and enlightened beings. Each Raga, melody, rhythm and arrangement was carefully chosen to match and enhance the energy of each mantra, by which a sensitive listener will realize how the connection to the mantra can be eased by the music when thoughtfully done. Mantras are perfect as they are, so any music played on a mantra needs to have a deep perception, understanding and utmost sensitivity to protect and preserve the perfection and purity of these ancient sacred sounds, in Sanskrit called MANTRAS." Manish
मननात त्रयते इति मंत्र:
The album is available in CD format and download (from our store which ships worldwide) and in all online music platforms for download and streaming.
If you believe that our scriptures are mere mythological texts, then mantra will disappoint you. as it requires that you invest your faith in a deity. If you don't believe that the existence of God has a form, then it is better for you to practice pure meditation and not pursue the science of Mantra.
The path of Mantra Yoga is accepting that there is
a higher force I can draw energy from.
Mantras should be used without demand and expectations.
It is a pure process of trust, patience, devotion and surrender,
without expecting anything in return.
A mantrin has total faith that in the vast universe there is a divinity that can assume a form which can impart on him protection. In the same way as existence cannot stop the rain even when you may be fervently praying for it, but it can give you an umbrella so you don't get drenched.
Mystics played such an important part in the development of Indian music! The great Indian mystics such as Narada and Tumbara were singers and Krishna played the flute. Thus, our music in its tradition and practice has always been connected with mysticism and it was the sacredness with which people of ancient times empowered music that kept it on a higher level. That is why it is also so important to keep its authenticity.

I am really feeling the power of your recent work, MANTRA. The first time i heard "Ram Ram Ram" under the rays of the sun surrounded by trees, is an experience that is hard to explain in words. The whole album is incredibly powerful and "Shivswarupoham" is beautiful. So true that Sanskrit expresses the inexpressible so profoundly, and combined with your voice and musical talent, it's a match made in heaven. So grateful to have found your work." -- Hina, UK

Your Isha Devata is the deity whom you have a connection, you like and whom you feel good about.
Since the whole point in Mantra is to make that inner connection, if you already feel connected to a deity, then you need no look further.
Healing Mantras (Karin Reber / Yoga Das Magazine Schweiz 5/2021)
"Manish Vyas is a sure value. The Indian musician, singer and composer living in Switzerland is closely connected to the music from his homeland, the roots of which go back to the Vedic era. Not only did he grow up in an environment that was imprinted by sacred music, but he also learned from an early age with great musicians and spiritual masters, which revealed him that music is a wonderful possibility to deepen the meditation taking us further on the path of self-knowledge.
This is clearly perceived on his new cd: MANTRA, A GATEWAY TO INFINITY. The nine mantras from the Hindu and Buddhist tradition touch the heart, emanate deep calm and peace and give us a taste of what joy is.
A bhakti yogi was truly at work here, who with his soulful music expresses his love for the Divine, and at the same time imparts healing for body and soul."
