"7 tears of tara" is an ambient meditation CD featuring piano and cosmic synth pads, utilising the musical notes specific to each chakra and can be used for chakra balancing. It is perfect for meditating, relaxing, going into trance, massage or yoga.
In 2004 Tania Smith (aka Crystal Gypsy) went to Tibet with world reknowned artist for peace Andrea Smith.The cover is taken from the inspired painting of Tara (the goddess of compassion)that Andrea completed when she returned from this spiritual journey.
"Tibet is full of magic and mystery and many incredible experiences. On our last day we climbed 16,000 feet to the sacred cave monasteried of Drak Yerpa. While in the cave of Tara, I saw something glisten on the roof of the cave. Thinking it might be crystal I asked the monk in the cave if I may touch it. He motioned yes and I touched it. To my surprise it was one tiny drop of water... a tear of Tara. I touched it to my third eye and thanked the monk who was saying a prayer in Tibetan."
"On returning to the US this CD was born, constantly and ever evolving into the "7 tears of tara". I hope this music brings you peace of mind as you listen and imparts a glimpse of the beauty and sacredness that I experienced in the vast country amongst the Himalayas that is Tibet. May the Tibetans, as well as all beings, be one day free of suffering so that all may enter the Temple Of Love."
