Bardo is a Tibetan term for a sacred process used to prepare for a conscious death or for a life’s major transition – through meditations, authentic love, and compassion in a deep state of let-go. The music helps keep just that: an inner tranquil space of letting go, in a prayerful last celebration bidding a grateful goodbye to a life well-lived.
The whole album can be played on a loop in the room or spaces meant for terminally ill people, as this music generates the typical Bardo effect.
Amano Manish writes:
“During covid times, I had seen, heard, and felt death from close quarters. I had also been through my own spiritual and personal transition and transformation in these last couple of years. And that is exactly what all-so-tangibly comes forth through this music.
“I designed the tracks and wrote the lyrics in such a way that the divine prayers and sacred chants can be listened to with a feeling of a deep letting-go. This also permeates through my singing.
“The compositions, arrangements, and music are all my creation, while the excellent production work has been done by my colleague, Siddhant Borawake.”
