Having survived a severe cyclone while on board The Pacific Jewel in the South Pacific, Ron Regel returns on the weekend to join Vicki Hansen and Sr Yeshe in launching ‘Dakini – Buddhist Chants in Praise of the Sacred Feminine’. ‘Dakini’ (Sanskrit), is the female embodiment of enlightened energy.
The album is a unique collaboration between world-renowned Indian fusion duo, IndiaJiva, with Ayya Yeshe Bodhicitta. Featuring the beautiful, rich voice of Ayya Yeshe, Dakini is a collection of ancient, time-honoured chants and mantras that strive towards the realisation of boundless compassion, loving kindness and unshakeable peace. Joining IndiaJiva at the Sydney launch will be Mongolian horse head fiddle player and throat singer Bukhchuluun Ganbargud (Bukhu), not just an extraordinary musician but a cultural ambassador of his country.
This album launch will be another opportunity to help the Sister Yeshe’s work with the Bodhicitta Foundation, helping slum families in India. For more information go to www.bodhicitta-vihara.com
