About This Recording

This recording includes all compositions from two previously released audio cassettes: Shanti Mandir (selections from Paramahansa Yogananda’s Cosmic Chants) and Vandana (traditional Indian bhajans). All these musical offerings were recorded live by Brahmacharini Mirabai and musicians from the Yogoda Satsanga Sangeet Kala Bharati (Yogoda School of Indian Music). Accompanying the chants are various Indian instruments, including the harmonium, bells, conch, cymbals, duffli, flute, gongs, jaltaranga, khol, mayuri, santoor, sitar, surmandal, kartal, tablas, tablas taranga, tanpura, and vichitra veena. The recordings were made at the Yogoda Satsanga Society of India (YSS) Ashram, founded in 1917 by Paramahansa Yogananda, in Ranchi, Jharkhand, India.Most of the chants are sung in Hindi, the official national language of India and a derivative of Sanskrit, which is often called “the language of the gods.” Devotional thoughts expressed in this medium convey this inherent harmonious communion, as is evidenced in these Hindi renditions. The original English lyrics of Paramahansaji’s chants, along with English translations of the bhajans, are provided in an accompanying booklet.

The rhythms and melodies of Paramahansa Yogananda’s English compositions have been slightly altered in some cases to accommodate differences in language.
