This single is the first offering from a collection of Shabads that I have recorded over many years and will be releasing soon as an album.
Shabads are mystical poems from the Sikh scriptures, meant to be sung or recited to connect and merge with the Divine. This particular poem is about respecting the unique power of a woman.
The masculine and feminine principles are needed together to create life.
Respect for both should be second nature. Yet so often in life and in religious paths, the feminine is seen as less than, and often even evil…
This is sooooooo sad and something we are learning to balance and heal collectively.
This version of "Bhand Jameeai" is about celebrating the unique qualities of a woman, her power to bring all life into being and nourish creation. No human is alive that did not come through a woman (at least not that I know :)
Soft vocals, ambient sounds, crisp clacks and solid beats…
May you reflect, enjoy and contemplate the full spectrum beauty of the Feminine.
Her sharp bold courage, gentle loving kindness, and everything in between.
Thank you woman, you are so beautiful and divine in every way 🌸🙏🏽🌸
May the feminine in all beings, all faiths, cultures and lands be cherished, respected, protected, listened to, and loved.
For all and any who have been connected to 3HO or kundalini yoga….
I dedicate this first single to all the woman and girls who were abused, manipulated or taken advantage of in any way.
May the healing and empowerment continue breath by breath, hand in hand 🙏🏽
