AllMusic Review by

Recorded at George Lucas' Skywalker Ranch, this is the second album produced by Mickey Hart of multi-phonic chanting by the celebrated Gyuto Monks. The album features two long cuts, one invoking Yamantaka (the destroyer of death), and the other invoking Mahakala (protector of the Dharma). The pieces resonate with spiritual power and, as a bonus, the album ends with a nine-minute live performance by Hart, Philip Glass, and Kitaro recorded at the invitation of the Abbot.
