“The monks create an astonishing sound!”
The New York Times
The Gyume Tantric College and its ritual musical traditions were founded in Lhasa, Tibet in 1433. For over 500 years, the monks at this monastery have been chanting using a special “one voice chording” technique which gives each monk the ability to chant three note major chords. This special technique requires years of vocal training and deep concentration.
This historic CD represents the first time monks from this auspicious tantric college were recorded in a modern recording studio. It features two thirty minute recordings of the Gyume Monks: “Guhyasamja (“Esoteric Communication”–a tantra of self initiation) and “Kalarupa” (“Dharma Victor”–an invocation to the Dharma Protector associated with the Gyume Monastery).
This is an extraordinary recording–a amazing listening tool of profound sacredness. The chanted mantras along with the tantric harmonics of the Gyume Monks are powerful tools for awakening the self, which invoke and praise various deities of purified consciousness.
