In the latest release from Bhakti Yoga Mantras, 'Vitthala Panduranga', we discover the soothing voice of Lalita Dasika mixed with layers of musical beats and rhythms making a mesmerizing combination captivating us and taking us to another dimension. Lalita Dasika explained to me that music is the perfect instrument to help all the misery disappear. Music accompanied by Divine Names is so powerful because we become absorbed in the Divine.
For Lalita Dasika, singing ‘Vitthala Panduranga’ was particularly special as Krishna is her ishtadeva and they added His names into the mantra. Usually, she chants these Names privately during puja when it is very personal. To chant them in a microphone and in front of people was unique and amplified her experience of singing this mantra where she describes the dark, divine, mystical aspect of God.
She ended by telling me she felt inspired to be working with devotees who share the same values, points of view and, most importantly, bhakti. It was the first time she got to experience working with a team of bhaktas and this touched her leaving a deep feeling of gratitude to Paramahamsa Vishwananda.
With their minds focused on Me and their lives centred upon Me, they inspire one another. By always speaking of My glory, they derive bliss and contentment.
Bhagavad Gita, 10.9
