The Upanishads mention the phenomenon of darshan, describing it as an encounter with God; a vision, a visitation. It is also understood to be a reciprocal experience; you, too, are seen. There is a fragility and transience to darshan which resembles a dream, a fever, a hallucination. Darshan is total presence and communion.
All of this I wished to explore in these songs; simplicity and transparency, honesty and vulnerability, magic and spirituality. And God. Whomever that is for you.
As always, from the bottom of my grateful heart, thank you for listening. I hope you enjoy these songs xxx
