Not even a relatively new release, Snatam Kaur's "To Heaven and Beyond" is the one that, no matter how many times I've played it, still takes my breath away.

Kirtan (pronounced KEER-tahn), part of 2,500 year old sacred yoga practice integrating devotion, wisdom; and sound, is the repetitive singing or chanting of mantras as a form of meditation. The ancient Sanskrit mantras are very powerful, high-vibrational recitations of the names of God and bring the practitioner closer to the Divine when spoken with intention.

With the beautiful tonal quality one comes to expect from the "Peace Princess," Snatam Kaur makes accessible old-world ritual chanting by the ecstatic interweaving of the names of God from Buddhism, Navajo, Sikhism, Islam, Hinduism, Christianity and Judaism traditions.

Orthodoxy dissolves, and in its stead, illumination.
