I (Richard) arrived home from a yoga retreat feeling pretty good. Saraswati (who seemed to be feeling pretty good after two days away from me) requested we create a simple song. She planned to use this mantra at a workshop she was running the following weekend. So we sat on the bed (the holiest of song writing locations for many an artist), I played some chords on guitar, and in a few minutes it was done.

You can listen to the entire track here, please buy if you like it.

Om shanti and love, Saraswati & Richard.


Ra Aa Ma Aa, Sa Sa Sa Sat, Hari Ha Hari Ha.
