Tina Turner does Kirtan

Tina Turner recording of Sarvesham Svastir Bhavatu (Peace Mantra) in Kirtan Style (call-reaponse)

from the Tina Turner Blog

“Lyrics”  (The term lyrics doesn’t really fit for those words but here we go)
Om Om Om
Sarvesham Svastir Bhavatu
Sarvesham Shantir Bhavatu
Sarvesham Poornam Bhavatu
Sarvesham Mangalam Bhavatu
Om, Shanti, Shanti, Shanti

Origin: Hindhuism, language: Sanskrit
The mantra means: “May well-being, peace, wholeness and tranquility, happiness and prosperity be achieved by all”.

In August 2005, the Dalai Lama and abbot Martin Werlen met for the occasion of a ceremony of interreligious dialogue in Einsiedeln, Switzerland. Their words inspired singers Regula Curti and Dechen Shak-Dagsay to record a CD with Buddhist and Christian prayers. While working on the project, Regula and Dechen found the courage to ask Tina Turner for her participation. The result of their cooperation is ‘Beyond’ – an album of the highest class with Tibetan mantras, Christian prayers and a spiritual message, inspired by Deepak Chopra, by Tina Turner.

Er is zelfs al een opvolger van Beyond: Beyond Children, met 0a. een cover van Jai Uttals Sharanam Ganesha erop.

En het bekendste nummer van Beyond: Sarvesham Svastir Bhavatu

Children Beyond is the follow-up to the 2009 album Beyond. This album constituted a remarkable shift in Tina Turner’s career, as it was her first involvement in a spiritual project. Beyond was a big success, reaching a top 10 position in the Swiss album charts and raising approximately 300,000 Swiss Francs (325,000 US Dollars) for several charity projects. Therefore, it was a logical decision to continue the project with Children Beyond, which will be released in Switzerland and in a digital version today.

There are a few significant departures from the first Beyond album. The most noticeable is that Tina Turner, Regula Curti and Dechen Shak-Dagsay are now joined by a choir of thirty children. The three ladies are not as prominently featured, the children are the real stars.
