Gratitude Joy 3
is a collaboration of many talents. Paul Avgerinos, Siddhant Bhatia, and Keerthy Narayanan combine their artistry (and many others) to celebrate new age-world meditation.

If there were one word I had to describe this music, it would be "mesmerizing." The recording begins with "Jaya Ganapati Om," a particularly relaxing and melodic piece that lays a solid foundation for the future of this recording. And all of it will be for your spiritual well-being—that is why these people make this music.


When I searched for the translation to the track, it said the following: Translation Glory to Thee, O Ganesha, the elephant faced one, the bestower of boons, the one who has the mouse as His vehicle, the one who has Modaka (a sweet preparation) in His hand, the supremely pure one. O Lord, I offer obeisance at Your Lotus feet.


So, as you delve into this collection of recorded blissfulness, you should dig deeper into the meanings to better understand the beliefs of the culture from which it was derived. Although I add the world to the genres covered, it frequently leans towards a more Middle Eastern atmosphere.


As Paul says in "Om Namah Shivaya," "the cosmic healer, my eternal friend, is, in fact, the calm in my chaos." And he also says, "The eternal flame I draw you near." From my perspective, this is essential spiritualism. Even though it is in a different language, the communication is clear and straightforward. One human race, one spirit, one God or deity, or whatever you choose to call it, we are one with each other, and as we are with our creator, regardless of what you decide to call it or the religion you may believe in.


The number of individuals involved in this project, which features over 100 musicians and singers, is incredible. "Lokah Samastah" gives you a glimpse of the talent assembled and the seemingly effortless vocals of so many. It sounds like a choir singing along to all the music and layers of instrumentation. The track's meaning is the Sanskrit phrase Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu, which supports the prevalence of love over hate. We could use that on a world level these days. Our lives and future could be beautiful with enough of everything for everyone to live comfortably.


It's a nice thought; perhaps this will be realized with music and words like this leading the way. Therefore, I needed to investigate the meaning of some of these tracks. It strengthened my own beliefs and wishes for our future.


"Om Shri Govinda" means "O Lord Govinda, the son of Devaki and Vasudeva, the Lord of the universe. Please grant me a son, O Krishna; I take refuge in you." This track has a very appealing percussive element and beautiful, transient, and universal vocals. While religious or spiritual beliefs may differ from yours, they all fold into one book of humanity when you take a step back and absorb the messages in these compositions.


I enjoyed one of the instrumentals, "A New Creation." The difference was that no thought went into the chanting; this time, it just let the music take you. That is often all I (and hopefully you) need to get to that place in my mind and heart to be exactly where I should be in those moments.


I must be honest. Once I heard this kind of music, I only considered a different language, religion, or spirituality the same. I had to simplify everything to be open to and feel it.


Gratitude Joy 3 is like the world church of music, all under the same roof, looking for the same result and what we all want: peace and love. This accomplished group of enlightened individuals allows you to step outside your daily existence and preconceived ideas of what this could be. Let the music and words flow (although, as I mentioned, you may want to do some research). But even so, if you do not understand the words, you can feel the spirituality of this music and the voices in every fiber of your being. Either way, it works.
