Something about the sentence “The Dalai Lama is releasing an album” sounds amazing, doesn’t it?

On July 6, the Dalai Lama will release Inner World, a collection of teachings and mantras.


It will be the first album from His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and you can preview the 11-track collection below with the famous Buddhist prayer “Compassion”:

Inner World features guitar work from Anoushka Shankar, and was co-produced by Charles Goldstuck and Junelle Kunin. The Associated Press features much more on how this project came about, so check that out here. 

More, via Pitchfork:

Proceeds from Inner World will benefit the Mind & Life Institute as well as Social, Emotional and Ethical Learning, an international education program developed by Emory University and the Dalai Lama.

There’s also a new Instagram page set up for the Inner World album, which has been uploading material relevant to this project for a few weeks, imparting wisdom like the following:

🙏Inner World: “Compassion” 🙏 A fully enlightened Buddha has three essential qualities: infinite compassion for every living being and the wish only to benefit them; the perfect wisdom that knows exactly how to benefit them; and the effortless ability to do so. ✨Om mani padme hum✨
