    Spiritually Hypnotic & Calming

    I LOVE this cd. THe first time I heard a Deva Premal song was during a yoga teacher training and I have been hooked since. I bought this cd at the training and am know buying anther copy- two of my songs skip because I have played the cd so often. I never get deeper into my meditation practice then when I meditate to Shima Shima. A must have for anyone who meditates or has a yoga practice.
