Abu Malik-Sunidhi en-chanting experience

It was an en-chanting experience for composer-singer Abu Malik and singer Sunidhi Chauhan as they got together to create a melodious fare for Varun Khanna's Bad Luck Govind. "Director Varun knows his craft very well. He got the chanting nam-myoho-renge-kyo and wanted me to weave a song using the chanting. It was an interesting experience, as the words have deeper meaning." The mantra stands for the sublime supreme Law of the Universe besides the vibration of everything and anything in the Universe -- Energy.
When chanted, it is said that one immediately taps into Buddhahood, an enlightened state of mind, body, and spirit. Also, time without end... And the words are the Title of the Lotus Sutra. While Nam means Devotion (to the) MyoHo means Mystic Law (of the), Renge stands for Lotus Flower and Kyo is Sutra. Nam-Myho-Renge-Kyo, thus is the mirror to both the soul and the Universe. It explains how the entire Universe is interdependent and interconnected, and it's the Law of the Gods.
When a person chants Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo, he accepts to bring out the Universe from within and connect it to the Universe above. His vibrations are heard when he chants Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo, and it is
said that these chantings will protect and guide him through this lifetime and the next.
So, armed with the powerful mantra, Abu Malik set about making a beautiful song with lyricist Madan Pal lending a lyrical meaning and soul to his music.
"With Sunidhi lending her vocal chords, the song is just so perfect," gushes Abu Malik. Yours to check out the soul-stirrer. And regain that inner peace you longed for!
