The Dalai Lama has shared a new recording which will appear on His Holiness’s forthcoming album of mantras, Inner World, due out next month on July 6th via Hitco Entertainment/Khandro Music for the famous religious figure’s 85th birthday.
Entitled, “One Of My Favorite Prayers”, the new recording follows the previously-released “Compassion” as the second single from the album, and hears His Holiness use spoken word alongside flute and guitar to share the message, “For as long as space endures, and for as long as living beings remain / Until then may I too abide to dispel the misery of the world.”
Like each track to be featured on the album, “One Of My Favorite Prayers” was recorded by Junelle Kunin, and features added musical accompaniment from Abraham Kunin, Daniel Ryland, and Gandhaar Amin.
Listen to the calming new single below.
