Sung and composed by Taranpreet Kaur Mehndi, a meditative single titled “Loka Samasta Sukhino Bhavantu” — a Sanskrit shloka meaning ‘Let all beings everywhere be happy and free’ — was launched earlier this week. “The surprising part is that my inner being is imbued in Gurbani, and Sanskrit mantras, chants are not my natural spiritual lingo or food, so the words found me and composed me, and came to form this song,” Taran, who is married to Daler Mehndi, told IANSlife in an interview.
Tibetan bowls and bells, guitars, sounds of nature create a strong meditative aura for the song. The vocal design of the Buddhist Lotus Sutra ‘Nam Myoho Renge Kyo’ by Taran Mehndi gives the song a sonic ambient backdrop.
The song is sung in Raag Bairagi Bhairav.
