I confess to having wondered how Bhai Nirmal Singh might measure up to his outstanding previous album. My ears had become so accustomed to the strains of Tum Karo Daya Mere Sai that they nearly rebelled when I placed Sun Sun Jeeva Teri Bani in the CD slot and pressed play. I took a deep breath and adjusted 'my' inner dials. Almost immediately I fell under its spell, at once enthralled, entranced, and enchanted by the unique sounds pouring forth from the speakers.

Bhai Nirmal has a way of arranging the sacred hymns of Guru Granth Sahib and Dasam Granth to a style of music that I would never otherwise listen to, in a discovery of awakening awareness that brings my entire being to life. Begging only for more, my ears have become enslaved wanting only to listen day and night to a curious kind of kirtan which seeps sublimely into my soul saturating it like a river of Gurbani in full flood. Entrancing sprites of mystic sound dance lapping at the edges of consciousness demanding my complete attention. Each divine word a healing balm soothing wounded bits of old hurts flushed out. All cares and stresses of worldly worries wash far away down a stream that continuously cleanses and uplifts the spirit in its buoyant current of naam.
