This album is ideal for morning meditation. The Enlightenment album is based on the five elements --water, wind, thunder, fire, and earth--that were believed in ancient times to form the underpinning of all things.
Samadhi is one of three meditation music albums designed by Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz. Samadhi can be used for morning or evening meditation. This album contains fourteen tracks composed by Zazen, produced by Rama.
The beautiful music on this remastered CD, some of Zazen's finest work, elevates the spirit. Produced by Rama. The CD contains the original song sequence as Rama conceived it.
Musical bliss! Samurai is the only CD in which Zazen's always-exquisite music is interspersed with Rama speaking about Buddhist topics ranging from optimism to enlightenment.
Mandala of Light is meditative, light, melodic but still. From Zazen's point of view, it is a breakthrough in melody and arrangements.
In this CD, Rama worked with Zazen to portray the tantric energy of the city of Los Angeles and to capture the influence of L.A.'s Latino culture.
Atlantis Rising was the first Zazen album recorded entirely in the studio and was the first Zazen album to make use of some new advances in music technology, especially in drum machines.
Retrograde Planet is guitar-focused rock music at a galactic rock concert on Mars, as imagined and created by Zazen and Rama.
Rama loved Beethoven's string quartets. He admired these as some the greatest works ever written, although they are less popular than Beethoven's other works.
Occult Dancer was recorded live, in a Los Angeles studio, in 1987. The musicians set up the studio to form a circle around Rama, who sat in the center and meditated while the band played.
