Story

Ragani's Love Holds Everything hit #24 in US iTunes World Music Charts, and held #1 for two weeks in both Top World Songs and Top Vocal Songs on CDBaby, the largest online distributor of independent music.

The first of Ragani’s mantra beat collection, Love Holds Everything is released as a tribute to and celebration of the Buddha. The lyrics feature the words of the Buddha to his monks as he was preparing to leave the body; he instructed them to live: "bahu jana sukhaya, bahu jana hitaya” (“for the bliss of the many, for the welfare of the many”). [story courtesy of Stoma Parker] The word Sunandanaya suggests that we consider “delightful wise conduct” in our lives, as our offering to the greater humanity. May we all Turn the World to Love®!

Production Notes:


"...As he was preparing to leave the body, Buddha's instructions to his monks were to take responsibility for their own liberation and to live: 'bahu jana sukhaya, bahu jana hitaya', for the bliss of the many, for the welfare of the many." [courtesy of Stoma Parker]
