We all know we need to meditate, but many find it challenging to maintain focus and commitment.

There are many paths to a meditative state of being. Music is one such portal.

It can be trance inducing, and can carry you away on a journey without ever leaving home.


It is just such a gift that LA based artist, Shambhu, has created in his new musical meditation CD, “Sacred Love.” You can listen to selections from the album at


Shambhu is nearing the conclusion of his Maui tour to promote “Sacred Love,” and share the healing vibrations of his music with the island.

With a style that encompasses jazz, world, Indian, and new age music, Shambhu creates a gateway through which listeners can drop in find inner tranquility and peace from the mental chatter of daily life.

After his first visit to Maui in 1994 to organize the Maui Peace Run, he began a ritual visit to the island every few years to promote peace in Maui schools and savor the inspiration and beauty of our sacred shores.


He said, “Maui is a spiritual sanctuary that has nurtured my spirit. Here I have learned from Nature itself and feel a spaciousness that I manifest in my music. It is all heart and very little mind.”

Shambhu has graced the stage and studio with world class musicians like Carlos Santana and Whitney Houston.

Although he is capable of playing any genre, his 30 year practice of meditation with revered mystic, Sri Chinmoy, influenced his personal expression.

Shambhu is one of those unique individuals who can shift effortlessly between his left and right brain. He first had a successful career in PR and business, sharing council with great individuals such as Mikhail Gorbachev.

It was only recently that he pulled his passion for music off the shelf and dove in headfirst, producing “Sacred Love” with the help of the legendary Will Ackerman.

“My purpose is to learn the higher Path. To love. To become. To serve. Music is my service.”

You can connect with Shambhu on Facebook, ReverbNation and Twitter. Watch “The Making of Sacred Love” at

To catch an earful of serenity, tune in for Shambu’s feature on Mana’o radio with Barry on December 8th at 8:30 am.

He will also be performing this Sunday, December 5th at the Wayne Dyer screening of his new movie, “Shift,” (a Temple of Peace benefit).

May your days be full of serenity, and may the music bring you home.
