Sahaj Atma refers to the natural state of a being, the innocent state... without being contaminated by conditionings and rules imposed by family, schools and society through our lives.
“You are your best guru, your best teacher, the answers are inside you.”
This album was inspired in this affirmation, reflected in the nature of the mantras
which Manish has chosen for this new collection. It is a meditative 'call' to our true self.
This music travels through a simple but delightful landscape of ancient, powerful mantras.
As always, each piece is supported by the collaboration of some of the finest musicians from India and charming Eastern instruments: Sitar, Bansuri-flute, Violin, Tabla, Harmonium, Tanpura, Swarmandal.
A compilation of sacred songs, which can be nicely and effectively played during sadhana, meditation, relaxation, yoga... or just simply listening to create good energy and loving atmosphere.
An invitation to come closer to one’s natural self -
into the space of oneness, love and silence.
YOU ARE YOUR OWN GURU, GUIDE, TEMPLE AND BELOVED.
Sajah Atma is a collection of mantras which got composed and arranged by me during the past four years. Looking back, this coincided with a period of a lot of personal learning, a time of lifetime changes and realizations. It is true that one needs an outer guru and one can get inspired by different sources, but ultimately the real teacher is inside. The key is to find it.
"I have always been touched by Manish's pure spirit, amazing musicianship and deep devotion. This album reflects exactly that. If stillness, candles flickering, incense burning, meditators in devotion and prayer had a sound, Sahaj Atma would be it. Deep peace." Deva
'Manish clearly knows what he's doing when it comes to devotional music - when I listen to this album, it's clear that he conveys the real feel of a mantra, leaving a magic effect on the listener.
