Songs of the Buddha is a collection of Tibetan Prayers and Mantras from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition.
Featuring the poetry of H.H. Rimay Gyalten Sogdzin Rinpoche as well as traditional mantras, this cd was composed, produced and sung by Surya with the intention of being a fundraising project for Rinpoche's village in Tibet.
