The 182 sanskrit verses of Sri Guru Gita are a 45 minute meditation. This recording was made in Ganeshpuri, India in a traditional manner with harmonium and two voices singing in harmony.
Leo began daily streaming of the chant to the internet in mid 2010 via the website Mantra LIVE. In October 2011 he travelled to India with the idea of capturing the stillness of Ganeshpuri in an audio recording for the 21st Century that reflects the power of this ancient text.
There is also a Youtube video that goes with this recording called Sri Guru Gita in Ganeshpuri
Leo and Simon are old friends from the Melbourne music scene in the 1980s. They set up two rooms and an adjoining balcony as a recording studio in the middle of town and recorded every day for a week. In the morning chanting and recording Sri Guru Gita and in the afternoon and evening recording Simon’s beautiful love songs which have also been released as a separate EP called 'Carry me Home' also available on CDbaby.
Ganeshpuri, where the recording was made is a really small village in Maharastra, india that’s way off the tourist track. Its a place of power and shakti and love
