Music Single

1.50

Lingashtakam is a single release from Radha’s upcoming new music album of sacred chants and mantras. It is a powerful chant in veneration of Lord Shiva, who is often symbolised as the Shiva lingam in temples and shrines throughout India. 

In its highest meaning, the Shiva lingam represents the formless, Lord Shiva, said to destroy the sorrows arising out of birth and death and restore the devotee to ultimate Truth. 

The mantra is sung traditionally with great faith, love and devotion and returns the listener to that inmost place of purity and emptiness.

Description

‘The angelic voice of Radha brings this timeless and
sacred mantra into our hearts with great ease,
mystical profundity, depth and joy.
One is effortlessly transported into the presence of the Supreme Being,
where the soul is delighted to drink this sacred nectar of
divine unity over and over again.
This ancient song emanates from the vast ocean of the Self,
the very essence of our being.
It calls us home.
You are invited to fully immerse yourself here.’

~ Mooji
