Recently I was listening to Sacred Nectar by Siri Sadhana Kaur. She has an incredibly unique voice, which brings a different sort of depth to the classic Kundalini yoga mantras she shares on Sacred Nectar. Siri Sadhana Kaur has worked with music and movement for much of her life, and shares her love of movement and expression by teaching Kundalini yoga, Nia, and Chi kung. Listening to Sacred Nectar, her devotion to yoga music and sacred mantra shines through.
Sacred Nectar opens with “Ad Guray Nameh.” The singing bowls that accompany this mantra bring a soothing and meditative tone to the listening experience. It feels like a fitting mantra to begin the album, bowing to the Divine Wisdom that exists in the Universe and in us. “Mul Mantra” feels almost like a lullaby. I can easily imagine using it during savasana or playing it softly while sleeping. It has a very sweet tone, and would also be great for meditation.
“Gobinday Mukunday” is a wonderful mantra for connecting with eight different aspects of the Divine. Yogi Bhajan said that meditating on this mantra can help to balance the hemispheres of the brain, and bring compassion and patience. Those are qualities that everyone could benefit from! The track “Ang Sang Wahe Guru” starts off with amazing astral keyboards. The music beautifully evokes the meaning of this mantra, the constant vibration and dance of Divinity present in each fiber and cell of our beings. As the track progresses, so does the intensity. By the end, you can almost feel your cells humming with the presence of God.
“Sat Siri Siri Akaal” is accompanied by incredibly beautiful instrumentation. This mantra has always been one of my personal favorites. Instead of becoming fearful about circumstance in my life or in the world around me, I can chant along and find strength in the timeless and deathless aspects of my soul. Siri Sadhana Kaur’s rich, deep voice is a wonderful enhancement to meditation on this mantra.
Siri Sadhana’s rendition of “Sa Re Sa Sa” is a joyful and fun celebration! It’s been said that adversity melts away in the face of this mantra, and in the face of this version it’s safe to say adversity doesn’t stand a chance. Where much of Sacred Nectar is gentle and meditative, “Sa Re Sa Sa” will have you dancing with the beat. “Ra Ma Da Sa Sa Se So Hung” is a powerful mantra for healing, and Siri Sadhana presents it beautifully. The pace is slow and meditative, Siri Sadhana’s voice deep and powerful. This is another track that would be perfect for savasana or meditation. It quickly takes you deep into yourself, and connects you with a strong sense of healing.
Overall, Sacred Nectar is a peaceful and meditative album. Siri Sadhana presents a powerful collection of mantras for healing and meditation. Use this album for restorative yoga or meditation, and feel the support of these powerful words. Find out more about Siri Sadhana Kaur and purchase Sacred Nectar at www.spiritvoyage.com .
