'Helping you to master yourself and master life.'

My Playlist

Music has always been an essential part of my existence. Music moves me in ways that are indescribable and speaks to aspects of my being beyond the understanding of my mind.

My taste in music has varied over the years but seemed to maintain a consistent theme of calming, easy going, energizing, loving tones. 

Here is a collection of my favorite and most listened to artists and songs, ranging from beautiful mantras, instrumentals, meditations and those that simply touch my heart.

The images are embedded and can be played & listened to by clicking on them.


Deva Premal - Moola Mantra Invocation (30 Min Meditation) - YouTube

his mantra evokes the living God, asking protection and freedom from all sorrow and suffering. It is a prayer that adores the great creator and liberator, who out of love and compassion manifests, to protect us, in an earthly form. This Moolamantra has given great peace and joy to people all over the world, who have chanted, or even listened to it. It has the power to transport ones mind to the state of causeless love and limitless joy.


"Soul of the Esraj" is a musical canvas for the practices of healing arts, hatha yoga and meditation. While the album has its roots in the classical music of North India, many elements of New Age and contemporary ambient musical styles have been included to build a multifaceted soundscape for each listener's spiritual journey. It is Benjy's hope and prayer that Soul of the Esraj will prove to be a steady and soulful companion to each listener on their path through this precious gift of life.

Deva Premal - Om Namo Bhagavate

The Gayatri Mantra is the verse of a sukha (hymn) from the "Rig Veda," a collection of Vedic hymns. It is one of the most ancient and familiar Sanskrit mantras. The mantra is named for Gayatri, the goddess of the five pranas (senses), who is said to protect the pranas of those who chant the mantra. Gayatri is also the goddess of education. Incorporating this mantra into yoga practice is thought to calm the mind and improve concentration. Source:

Deva Premal & Miten with Manose - In The Light of Love/ Om Shree Dhanvantre, In Concert with CD/DVD - YouTube

Om Shree Dhanvantre Namaha (Healing) Salutations to the being and power of the Celestial Healer. This mantra helps us find the right path to healing, or directs us to the right health practitioner. In India it is also commonly chanted during cooking in order for the food to be charged with healing vibrations – either to prevent disease or assist in healing for those who are sick. This mantra can be chanted for any situation that one would like to be healed or remedied. Good to remember and be open to the path of healing not necessarily looking the way we expect it! Dhanvantari is the celestial healer/physician - the patron saint of Ayurveda.

Deva Premal: Seven Chakra Gayatri Mantra - YouTube

The Gayatri is a universal prayer enshrined in the Vedas. It is addressed to the Immanent and Transcendent Divine which has been given the name 'Savita,' meaning 'that from which all this is born.' The Gayatri may be considered as having three parts - (i) Adoration (ii) Meditation (iii) Prayer. First the Divine is praised, then It is meditated upon in reverence and finally an appeal is made to the Divine to awaken and strengthen the intellect, the discriminating faculty of man. The Gayatri is considered as the essence of the Vedas. Veda means knowledge, and this prayer fosters and sharpens the knowledge-yielding faculty. As a matter of fact the four core-declarations enshrined in the four Vedas are implied in this Gayatri mantra. Source: Sathya Sai International Organisation
