After having collaborated with the Gyuto Monks of Tibet on Kamal’s Zen Mama, we realized the importance of the pure sounds, the in-transient overtone chants and the vibration of the voices of these monks. So we decided to embark on the project of having a CD of the Gyuto Monks of Tibet without any background music whatsoever. Therefore the title Pure Sounds.
It can be challenging for the Western mind to listen to and absorb directly these chanting sounds without musical accompaniment. The chanting vibrational sound is intended to bypass the mind. In Eastern culture it is recommended to listen to the sound 108 times, which is the number of beads of the mala. When you are able to listen to a mantra for 108 times, it is believed that you will reach a transformation state that is embedded in the sound and the meaning of the mantras themselves. We invite you to enjoy this journey and dissolve in the pure sounds of the Gyuto Monks of Tibet.
