"Sacred Chants of Shiva" was the first in a series of now globally known CDs, created by composer/musician Craig Pruess, as a direct result of the deep silence, joy and upliftment he felt from his experiences on courses offered by the International Art of Living Foundation, and also by his direct guidance and profound inspiration from Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, the founder of the Art of Living, and one of the greatest and most illuminated spiritual masters of our present time.
During 1990's, Craig felt that there were few CDs in the market that genuinely induced a deep meditation state in the listener. As a serious student of Indian classical music, and practicing yogi himself, he naturally turned to the ancient Vedic tradition of India, the fountainhead of deep spiritual knowledge and awakening. Many of the ancient chants contained in this CD originated many thousands of years ago, when the sages of old understood the subtle workings of the mind and the innate power of sound and vibration.
