    This signature mood album is a restful alternative to our fast paced age. Soulful songs weave Sanskrit chants into catchy English refrains. This cinematic collision of sound was created in collaboration with seasoned musicians and uses a colorful palette of world instruments. Album draws inspiration in styles such as space-rock, electronic, world-beat and hip-hop.

    Featuring eight impressive tracks “Wild Horses” has an insistent pulse. Soothing electronic beats and mantras from the Upanishads begin the album with the “ Morning Rising.” As the album unfolds we journey into “Wild Horses” – a track that takes you on an adventure ride. “ Dooms Day Parade” confronts the establishment with challenging English lyrics. As the “day continues” – we rest in a soothing lake of Hari Muraru, with celestial flutes and evocative dilruba.

    Leaving you with a yearning to listen again and again, this album takes you on a transformational journey from outside – in. This is a personal album, reflecting on the life as a ever-expanding miracle and recognizing patterns and forces at work above and beneath our normal focus.

Track Name: Morning Rising
om purnam adah purnam idam, purnat purnam udacyate
purnasya purnam adaya,purnam evavasishyate
(Isha Upanisad: Invocation Prayer)

The Supreme Being is perfect and complete, and because He is completely perfect, even though so many complete units emanate from Him, He remains the Complete Balance.
Whatever is produced of Complete is perfect in itself.
Track Name: Wild Horses
Wild horses, they took me away from you,
Wild horses, now stop for a minute,
Wild horses, please bring me back home to you,
Wild horses, this time I really mean it.
Track Name: Narayan
This track features verse from the Bhagavad Gita:

isvarah sarva-bhutanam
hrd-dese 'rjuna tisthati
bhramayan sarva-bhutani
yantrarudhani mayaya

The Divine Intelligence is situated in everyone's heart, and is directing the wanderings of all living entities, who are seated as on a machine, made of the material energy.

The track refrain is in Russian and means:
"Narayan is in my heart"
Track Name: Dooms Day Parade
It's a Dooms Day Parade in the Underworld city!

The wheel of time is clashing like a train,
the age of Kali is here to take it's reign,
watch Mother Nature going down the drain
and the skies will cry with the acid rain.

Looking for truth? There hardly be any...
But even a popper will worship his penny,
Their past unknown, their future pending,
their lives go by merely pretending.

But how far can you stretch your vitality
Denying the soul's immortality?

It's a Dooms Day Parade in the Underworld city!
It's a Dooms Day Parade in the Underworld city!

The wheel of time is smashing like a chain,
the oily barrel sets poison down the drain,
they'll take the truth and ban it as profane
and the world will be run by thoroughly insane!

Filling our hearts with perverted desires,
making us pawn our ticket to Zion,
but now descending from Vaikuntha,
coming down unchanged, the touchstone of Truth
is breaking down the chain !

Descending from Vaikuntha, coming down unchanged,
the touchstone of Truth is breaking down the chain !

It's a Dooms Day Parade in the Underworld city!
It's a Dooms Day Parade in the Underworld city!

Mad Scientist Saying:
" The Universe came out of a big explosion!"

Shall I run, shall I stay, shall I join?
Dooms Day Parade....
Track Name: Hari Murari
Hey Krishna, Govinda,
Hari Murari,
Hey Krishna.....
Track Name: Soul Coffer
I 've been keeping myself away within the soul coffer,
I sold myself, my soul for a supposed gold offer
within the body "I" shine !

And now you asking me if I want to take your offer?
And now you asking me if I am tired to suffer?
And now you asking me if I want to take an offer?
from the soul proper....

The ice cold nature of the flesh in the land of death
Takes away life that the Lord gave me through breath
The soul brightly shines, and I could be revealing
Instead of concealing, lamenting and deceiving
Regret of past wrongdoings, could I ever forget
Eventually this dream, will fade away this project
Dark times, tribulations, and twisted realizations
Atomic radiation, t.v., and zombie creations

And now you asking me if I want to take your offer?
And now you asking me if I am tired to suffer?
And now you asking me if I want to take an offer?
from the Soul Coffer,
from the Soul Coffer,
so proper.....

I'm the copper top, that's giving life to this robot
Everlasting regardless, of what I have or not
I've been changing my clothing, lifetime after time
And overloading thoughts, can pollute one's mind

Within the body I shine,
I can reveal it in time,
watch me cleanse my heart +mind

The Mantra tames one's mentality, cleanse one's anatomy
I belong to spiritual harmony, redirect my reality
To be the real Me, caught in this savage body
Ignoring my position, as a servant to Infinity

It's a tragedy, and simultaneously a comedy
A perverse reality, adjust your vision to what oughtta be

The soul coffer, is coughing up garbage with proper
Tales to captivate your essential eternity for a whopper
Of a lie, a fairy tale that is eventually doomed to die
Happily ever after, is beyond this realm in the spiritual sky
To redirect my energy is a must for me to try


And now you asking me if I want to take your offer?
And now you asking me if I am tired to suffer?
And now you asking me if I want to take an offer?
from the Soul Coffer,
from the Soul Coffer,
within the body I shine!
Track Name: Lead Me Govinda
Lead me Govinda towards the Holy,
down with the River towards the Holy.

cintamani-prakara-sadmasu kalpa-vrksa-
laksavrtesu surabhir abhipalayantam
laksmi-sahasra-sata-sambhrama-sevyamanam
govindam adi-purusam tam aham bhajami

I worship Govinda, the primeval Lord, who is tending the cows, yielding all desire, in abodes built with spiritual gems, surrounded by millions of purpose trees, always served with great reverence and affection by hundreds of thousands of laksmis or gopis.

Lead me Govinda towards the Holy,
down with the River towards the Holy.
Track Name: OM
(: OM - OM - OM :)
