When the husk is removed and the space within the coconut is revealed or just as the restless wave settles back to the comforts of its ocean, so does one experience blossoming, when one comes in touch with the hollow and empty space within. Glorifying such harmony and depth in his compositions, Dr. Manikantan has come out with a unique rendering of powerful customized new age bhajans.
Presenting the world, with the hollow space, the depth and the vastness of the ocean within an hour-long melodious bhajans - Manikantan 's rendering kindles devotion and connectivity to one's being. In his satsangs the participants invoke the presence of their Master Sri Sri Ravishankar.
A musician, a father, an Ayurvedic physician and an Art of Living teacher, Dr. Manikantan has successfully played these roles, in his real life. His performances have been captured and made availabl to you through numerous titles in VCD format world-wide.
His new notes of melodious bhajans will now guide us through yet another meditative evening.
