Thrilled to be releasing BHAKTI !
Bhakti is love – loving God, loving your own self, and loving all beings. – Amma
Although I was brought up in the Greek Orthodox Church, I became a student of a Bhakti yoga guru from India when I was 16. All my life I have practiced yoga, meditation, chanting and devotional singing. For the last 20 years I have also been very active in a small Christian church near my home, singing and praying there. Increasingly I have been drawn to blend the most personally meaningful aspects of Bhakti yoga and Christianity together in a harmony of pure divine love. With devotion, gratitude and joy I offer you this album, BHAKTI .
Veteran New Age composer, Paul Avgerinos, blends his consummate skills, not just musically, but also spiritually, to produce “Bhakti”. His connection to Christianity and Yoga shine together in a way that neither tradition outshines the other in his devotion, setting a model for the inter-spiritual future we may all embrace one day.
