On September 19, 2014 I had the great honour and pleasure of attending the Mantras for Life Tour featuring Deva Premal, Miten, and Manose.
Deva Premal’s hypnotic mantras have been the backdrop of my yoga classes for years, but nothing could have prepared me for this magical night. Her powerful, soothing voice led us all in mantra and song, and I left the concert feeling uplifted, enlightened, and high on life!
The concert felt very personal, and Miten and Deva took great care to teach us all about the mantras we would be chanting. The “lyrics” to each mantra were placed up on a projector, encouraging the entire audience to join in – which we did! You could definitely feel the power of our voices raising our collective frequencies.
Deva said that if we could take anything from the evening, it ought to be the significance of the mantra, OM, the “cosmic yes”. In her words: “Bring OM home”.
The chemistry between Miten and Deva was palpable, and aside from being inspirational, they (especially Miten!) are really funny! The banter was well-timed and totally entertaining. And while I must admit I hadn’t heard any of Manose’s music until the concert, I think I can speak for everybody when I say that we were absolutely blown away by his talent and his powerful presence. Here, truly, is a team of musicians who embody the word synergy.
I also spent a small fortune adding to my collection:
- Deva Premal’s Mantras For Precarious Times
- Deva Premal, Miten, and Manose’s Mantras for Life
- Manose’s Epiphany
- Deva Premal and Miten’s 21-Day Mantra Meditation Journey
I experienced so many A-HA moments during the concert, and felt truly at one with the divine. It seems strange to describe a concert experience this way, but I guess it wasn’t “just” a concert – it truly was a gathering of peace, meditation, mantra, and song.
A huge thank you to Marina of marinaMmedia for putting on this concert and for giving me the opportunity to be involved with this event.
If you ever get the chance to see them live, DO IT!
Love, love, love, and light,
