Loka Samasta Sukhino Bhavantu is a chant, sung and composed by Taran Mehndi in Raag Bairagi Bhairav and the music is produced by Singapore learnt and Mumbai- Delhi based music producer Leo Sound.
Tibetan bowls and bells, guitars, sounds of nature create the perfect meditative aura. The vocal design of the Buddhist Lotus Sutra ‘Nam Myoho Renge Kyo’ by Taran Mehndi gives the song a perfect sonic ambient backdrop.
All of whom have never acted or performed on camera.
The song has t let me sleep and the visuals have not let left me one bit… I have never experienced such brilliant clarity nourished in passion! Everyone brought their oneness to the video and it is what it is because of each one of them.
These are all women of substance, working and engaging with their higher selves diving deep within and leaning only on themselves. It’s been an incredible cathartic experience for each one of us. Sharing with you a press note and the we transfer link with the video… the track resonates creating an amazing aura and vibe.
Taran Mehndi debuts as a Video Director. She has casted 13 characters, aged 7 to 70, all debuting as actors in the video. Each one has magnificently portrayed situations from life, emoting pride, anger and situations that we all get entangled sometime in life, like rituals, some in distress, some in fear, yearning to be included without judgements in the society, but true liberation happens when we empower ourselves, take decisions to deliberately sow happiness. The old lady depicts Wisdom. The healing occurs when we acknowledge our own selves just the way we are, looking within and drop looking outwards.
The sutra chant in the background evokes a feeling of being constantly reminded of adhering to the Mystic law of the Universe that of deliberately sowing good feelings which leads to happiness and freedom. Divinity will surface sooner or later. The Knock Knocks (of sadness, hurts etc) in our lives are opportunities to see what feelings we are sowing, opportunities to look within and shift focus.
The track grows on you, by the second and third listen, the chant resonates on auto mode, even when the song is switched off. Do help it reach more ears and hearts. Love and Gratitude
