This CD makes you smile. It starts with almost a Celtic feel yet the mantra is Buddhist. It makes for a pleasant fusion that will help anyone seeking to use that popular chant for meditation purposes. Haunting in places and uplifting in others, it is an ideal recording to connect with higher levels of spiritual experience. The versatility of the human voice is shown here in dramatic light and will be much appreciated by connoisseurs of spiritual music. I was humming along throughout.
