This virtual kirtan of a chant by Paramhansa Yogananda features devotee musicians from Ananda. The musicians traded tracks with each other from lockdown over the last two months, videoing themselves recording, and sharing inspiration and satsang through this divine music. Panduranga, at Ananda Village mixed and mastered the combined tracks, Baraquiel in Pune synced and edited the video and audio tracks, and Ishani in Delhi finished the editing and provided mystical visuals to enhance the experience. Enjoy!
Lyrics (words by Rabindranath Tagore, in Yogananda's "Cosmic Chants" first edition - (sing each line twice.)
Who is in my temple?
All the doors do open themselves;
All the lights do light themselves.
Darkness, like a dark bird, flies away, oh, flies away.
Chi entra nel mio tempio?
Ogni porta s’apre a Te,
mille luci splendono.
Ed il buio vola via, come un corvo, vola via!
Vocals: Hezequiel, Surya, Mantrini, Bhaktan
