The Gandharvas have changed their name to Manohara due to a name conflict. Please check out our latest CD "Breath of My Soul" under the name of Manohara!
Manohara is a group of musicians, singers and songwriters from Ananda Ashrama in La Crescenta, California. The actual members and number of musicians may vary from time to time but Manohara came into being when the Jizo Peace Center asked one of the musicians to organize and lead the music for the First Annual Veteran's Day Peace Chant at the Yoga Kingdom Sanctuary in Pasadena.
Since this was not officially an Ananda Ashrama Choir function we chose a name to represent our little peace band. "Manohara" is a Sanskrit word that is a name for Shiva, the God of transformation but loosely means "stealer of hearts."
Manohara will accept engagements and record cd's as they are inspiried to, for the purpose of promoting peace, healing, and higher consciousness on our beautiful planet.
