According to the Hindu Vedic view of creation, it was sound and not light that appeared first. In Vedic parlance, it is called “Nada Brahma” or the Sound Celestial. Vedic ‘rishis’ believed that the evolution of the ‘Brahmand’ or universe was caused as a result of ‘Bindu Visphot’ or an atomic explosion that produced infinite waves of sound, which represent cosmic ascent and expansion. The sound was a monosyllable: “Aum”. Since “Aum” is related to the beginning of the universe, Hindus consider it as the most sacred syllable with which Vedic mantras commence.
Divine Chants of India is a unique compilation of some of the most powerful divine Vedic hymns musically woven in Indian classical raags, sung by Hariharan, Anup Jalota, Shania Mahadevan and Devaki Pandit. Chanting of Vedic hymns and mantras in composite lyric, combined with the sound of music, create divine vibrations. Just as ‘Meerabai’ and ‘Radhika’ represent the ‘lyrics of poetry’ and ‘rhythm of music’ respectively, the delight of Vedic hymns in different ‘raags’ create grandeur of divine chants and enchanting devotional songs. These timeless compositions bring us entrancing recitations of Vedic hymns and shlokas that will not only delight the connoisseur but equally, and more importantly, resonate with the younger generation.
