Meditation Toronto releases new album 'Mantra Meditation'

The yoga group known as Meditation Toronto have released their new EP music album, “Mantra Meditation.” The record has been released by Meditation Toronto, also sometimes billed as the Toronto Meditation Group. Although “Mantra Meditation” is listed as an EP for containing just five original tracks, it has an approximate total listening time of 45 minutes and is therefore longer than many full-length releases. “Mantra Meditation” is intended as accompaniment to the ancient practice of mantra meditation, but serves equally well as soothing music in general.

The sound of “Mantra Meditation” is mellow and natural, guided by delicate female vocals in the tradition of India's best-loved kirtan and mantra singers. Its instrumentation is tastefully composed and played in such a way as to not obstruct the listener's peace of mind, but rather to enhance the meditation experience by providing a refreshing and uplifting environment. Songs from the record may be sampled at the Meditation Toronto official website (link provided below).

“We are a group of people who meditate,” writes Meditation Toronto. “We practice and teach an ancient form of yoga known as mantra meditation. Mantras are spiritual or transcendental sounds that have a soothing effect on the soul. We teach others how to meditate free of charge.”

The group's official website describes meditation with the following:

Although meditation is oftentimes thought to be nothing more than a method for stress relief and the improvement of physical health, the real value of meditation goes far beyond these benefits. The immediately noticeable effects of meditation are that we feel a little lighter, less burdened by artificial 'needs' and desires. We become calmer and more relaxed. Gradually we will develop insight with regard to our true needs and how we can attain real satisfaction and happiness.”

They also describe the effects of meditation as not only bringing relief from stress and anxiety, but also giving the practitioner a taste of spiritual happiness. “A happiness that is beyond the senses and mind,” they write “– a happiness in the heart.”

Meditation Toronto's message for their “Mantra Meditation” EP can be summarized in this short blessing taken from their site.

Take a break from the world. Rest your heart and mind. Be happy and satisfied by experiencing your inherent spiritual nature.

Welcome to the world of meditation, the spiritual essence of yoga! You are very welcome to attend any of our meditation events or come to a free meditation class.”

The “Mantra Meditation” EP by Meditation Toronto is available online worldwide.
