The first of Ragani’s mantra beat collection, Love Holds Everything is released as a tribute to and celebration of the Buddha. The lyrics feature the words of the Buddha to his monks as he was preparing to leave the body; he instructed them to live: "bahu jana sukhaya, bahu jana hitaya” (“for the bliss of the many, for the welfare of the many”).

The word Sunandanaya suggests that we consider “delightful wise conduct” in our lives, as our offering to the greater humanity. May we all Turn the World to Love®!
