Mantra ? Pandit Bhimsen Joshi

Mantra is a sacred sound, chanted to aid the concentration or to express the essence of a sutra. It is like a short scripture or a series of syllables used in meditation and rituals. It consists of sounds or words that enable one to cut through discriminating thoughts so the mind can become clear.

In this album Pandit Bhimsen Joshi sings Ram Krishna Hari Mantra in the form of a continuous soothing chant. Ram Krishna Hari mantra is believed not only to help in establishing profound contact with the Almighty but also enabling the listeners in liberating themselves from the sins they may have committed in the past.

Acknowledged as the leading light of the Kirana Gharana, Pandit Bhimsen Gururaj Joshi is a sheer musical marvel whose singing invariably provides listeners with a divine musical experience. Born in 1922 into a conservative Brahimin family in Gadag, Karnataka, Bhimsen Joshi displayed the signs of a musical genius from an early age. He ran away from home and started learning music at the age of 11 against his father?s wishes. But when his father become aware of Bhimsen?s talent in singing and his fervent talent in singing and his desire for knowledge in music, he made arrangements for him to learn under the guidance of Sawai Gandharva of Kundol, a pupil of Abdul Karim Khan.

He has been honored with numerous awards and titles such a Padma Shree and Padma Bhushan by the Government of India and the Sangeet Natak Akademi award amongst others.
