1 Akal  

When Shunia was putting their new album together they decided to include a song based on the Akal mantra. It has a special meaning and purpose: To help guide the departing soul on its journey out of the worldly realm.

Here are Shunia's thoughts about" Akal":
"As we were composing the track, we thought it'd be beautiful to have a more classical counter melody line going over the top of the chant. As we worked on it, it came to us that using the Italian phrase, "risposa in pace", which means, "rest in peace" would not only be a beautiful musical line to sing but would also be appropriate to the true meaning of the mantra. It would also give an Eastern and Western connection to this human expression of mourning, and desire for our souls to have eternal life.
