Ragani's Love Holds Everything hit #24 in US iTunes World Music Charts, and held #1 for two weeks in both Top World Songs and Top Vocal Songs on CDBaby, the largest online distributor of independent music.
Single Release (Mantra Beat series): 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”). [story courtesy of Stoma Parker] 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®!
