om ajnana-timirandhasya jnananjana-salakaya
caksur unmilitam yena tasmai sri-gurave namah
I was born in the darkest ignorance, and my spiritual master opened my eyes with the torch of knowledge.
I offer my respectful obeisances unto him.
A Little Something About This Track
This peculiar song Invocation is a humble expression of gratitude and respect for the guru.
It uses cathedral organs and echos of Gregorian chants to create a sense of space and reverence for the spiritual master.
In part inspired by Ranchor Prime’s beautifully haunting version on his Message of Devotion album, it kicks off my own 2012 album Offerings.
