Several years ago, world-famous kirtan wallah Krishna Das connected with Ma on one of his trips to India. He was so moved by the beauty of Ma's chanting and the depth and passion of her devotion that he invited her to come to the US and tour with him. That spring and summer, Ma spent time in Woodstock and New York City, did some touring with KD, and came out to the Pacific Northwest, eventually returning to New York, where she recorded Ram Bhaav Re before leaving for India.
She returned to North America the following year, touring through Toronto, New York, California, and Oregon, where she was received with love and gratitude by people hungry for the fire of her spiritual passion and devotion to God. As one of her devotees here in the West says, "Ma must be seen to be believed, a combination of raw power and deep silence produces a profound mood in the participant. Her kirtans always take you to the deepest places."
"Ram Bhaav Re", blessed with Ma's distinctive style,on this Cd combines with the voice of her friend Sruti Ram who is a kirtan singer of renowned in Woodstock NY,Scott Molampy (Damaru)who has a delicate touch with drums needed on this CD and a little help from friends on chorus, producing a work of haunting devotion. You can just put it on "repeat" all day long in your temple or yoga school!
As she says of her devotional chanting, "There is nothing I would rather do than sit and chant the name of Ram. It fills me with peace and wisdom. May you also be filled in the same way while chanting the name of Ram."
