Uplifting Mantras for You is a self published album that came as a result of my own yoga practice. The sounds of the mantras on this album have been especially selected for self development and personal growth. Therefore this album is meant not only to provide yoginis with beautiful music for their practice, but also to reach out to people who may benefit greatly from these seeds of higher consciousness but may never otherwise have heard about the power of mantras.

This album carries a non-denominational message but one that I hope will reach those with an open heart to hear the beauty in the music and the inner wisdom that transcends all conventions.

Sarab Deva can be translated literally from Sanskrit as 'universal divinity', hence this album is a culmination of mantras from different faiths and lineages, all of which have special meaning for me and have elevated my own personal growth and healing. I maintain that it is the intention with which the mantra is chanted that makes all the difference for they are words and sounds that become even more powerful when a human being holds them in their mind and heart.

So choose the mantra that really 'speaks' to you and spend a few minutes everyday chanting it. A brief explanation has been given in the insert for each mantra chosen, expressing what they mean, and what they can be used for.

Please support me in my intention to bring mantras to a wider audience by recommending this album to everyone you know, so that even more people may personally benefit from the power of the sacred sound currents.

With love and blessings for your practice,
Sarab Deva
