  • Arranger: Jean-Philippe Rykiel.
  • The Vajrayana, or Diamond Teachings, of Tibetan Buddhism encourage the celebration of life and the ardent pursuit of enlightenment. Cutting straight to the heart of these aims are Vajra chants. These deeply moving songs of healing and protection are presented here with keyboard embellishments and occasional percussion.
  • Tibetan Buddhist musical master Lama Gyurme and French composer Jean-Philippe Rykiel offer eight different chants (and an extra "unplugged" version of one) on this follow-up to their beloved 1996 collaboration THE LAMA'S CHANT. This time around, Rykiel's keyboards and other musical accompaniment take a more prominent role. Dramatic synthesizer chords support Gyurme's bass tones, while the gentle strums of a kora (African harp) weave in and out of almost every line. Percussion livens up the healing "Medicine Buddha Mantra" and acoustic piano shows up in "Offering Chant." While Rykiel's music is often quite moving, Gyurme's vibrant incantations feel like a rain of blessings in and of themselves.
