Kailash: Live ~ Lyrics & Translations

Photos - 0930

Kailash's second CD features many of the chants heard during his kirtan events that are not included in his first CD, SincerityIt even includes Kailash's rendition of Message in a Bottle (a favorite with many audience members!).

Drawing upon two principal streams in Kailash's spiritual lineage, tantric Hinduism and Buddhism, these mantras provide lush soundscapes in which our hearts and minds may freely travel. As Kailash says, "A mantra is a path to the Perfection that it represents. Each repetition is a step toward stable residence in that very Perfection."

The offerings on this CD are valuable resources for your journey to a version of yourself that is more consistent with your Chosen Ideal, and more capable of expressing the Radiant Care and Awareness that is our Essential Nature

7. Message in a Bottle

Just a castaway, an island lost at sea.
Another lonely day, with no one here but me.
More loneliness than anyone could bear.
Rescue me before I fall into despair.

(Chorus): I’ll send an S.O.S. to the world (2X)
I hope that someone gets my (3X)
Message in a bottle (4X)
A year has passed since I wrote my note
But I should have known this right from the start.
Only hope can keep me together.
Love can mend your life but
Love can break your heart.
(Chorus)
Walked out this morning, don ’t believe what I saw
A hundred billion bottles washed up on the shore
Seems I’m not alone at being alone.
A hundred billion castaways, looking for a home.
(Chorus)
Sending out at an S.O.S. (8X) [composed by Sting]
