Monastic Shanti: Yoga Mantras by Akasha
Monastic Shanti Video for album “Dreams Of White Tantra” by Akasha
This mantra and video are designed to inspire all of us on our life journey. As this song is a tribute to acknowledge & appreciate those who already are devoted to developing innovative benevolent ways to a high quality of daily living in all forms. In the video both masculine and feminine aspects are brought to the forefront representing balance and strength. There is also a synergy expressed between what is familiar and what is foreign or previously unknown with an overtone of unity & human curiosity. It is a message of remembrance to be mindful of moments in life where grace is extended to each and every one of. This may be the case more often than we know at first glance. The breath of this mantra carries the essence of Kapalbhati Pranayama (a yogic breath technique), the primarily action is on the exhalation, the inhalation is passive and automatic. To sing along or to quietly listen invites the energy of letting go of excess so the simplicity of our individual essential “prana” (life force which moves us forward) may function as a faithful apprentice awaiting direction. May all beings be at peace and prosper. Namaste, Akasha.
