A once-in-a-lifetime collection from the hottest music stars today. These incredible artists have come together to support His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the plight of Tibetan refugees. All artists' royalties will be donated to the Office of the Dalai Lama via the Foundation For The Preservation Of The Mahayana Tradition (FPMT) - an organization based on the same Buddhist tradition as the Dalai Lama. Founded by Lama Thubten Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche to help bring Tibetan Buddhism to the West, FPMT also engages in community service and has assisted Tibetan refugee communities, improving water supplies, housing, education, and providing support for elderly monks and nuns.
MANTRA MIX includes an Enhanced CD component featuring special video clips of the Dalai Lama as well as some unique interactive 'lotus' and 'mandala' portals. These can be viewed and explored at the users' leisure on their computers. Cutting edge technology has gone into the Enhanced CD to produce an ambient Tibetan environment offering another dimension to the whole album concept. Parts of the Enhanced CD will also be featured on www.mantramix.com
