The Chant of Metta as composed, arranged and performed by Imee Ooi is a gift to
the human race. It is a gift of peace, serenity and love.

Imee Ooi is a Immensely-talented young woman from Malaysia who composes and performs
music set to traditional Buddhist mantras.
And just like you don't have to be Jewish to enjoy bagels,
and you don't have to be Austrian to love Mozart, or Jamaican to love Reggae,
you do not have to be Buddhist to deeply enjoy
her marvelous music.

The lyrics are all in languages other than English, from Cantonese to Mandarin to Malaysian to Sanskrit.

If you put it on without announcing to others what it is, you will still get
a strong positive reaction from anyone who loves ethereal, serene music.

It would not be fair to call Imee Ooi "The Enya of the Far East"--She's much more than that.
But it might help a "newbie" get a handle on the general sound
and mood of some of her music.

Her voice is clarion and pure, her melodies memorable, and her arranging ability
and instrumental voicings are especially brilliant.
Her music has the ability to carry you away on clouds of serene joy.

The Chant Of Metta is a great place to start.

If it happens that you like it, get your checkbook ready, because this gifted young woman has a
whole bunch of CDs worth your while, and most are of extremely high quality.

A good 2nd choice might be "Om Mani Padme Hum", with it's hypnotic beauty.
Her Heart Sutras (Cantonese and Mandarin) are both wonderful.

Her music is diverse, but primarily Western in its influence and melody-types, with many far-Eastern touches.

If you could use some musical peace and serenity in your life, you could hardly do better than
surrounding yourself with the wonderful music of Imee Ooi.

This CD is a Malaysian Chant of loving kindness. I went to a meditation class hosted by meditation teacher Tara Brach and this song was playing and I felt really good so I asked where can I get this CD and they had it for sale. I listen to it while taking a bath or need to get rid of stress and I also listen to it before bed and meditation. If you are looking to relax and get lost in your own world get this CD. I recommend 200%.

Having a bad day? Just play this CD. It changes your mood immediately and nothing negative seems to bother you. Great to play in horrible traffic or very low volume in your office. I lost my first copy -- when I found it again, I bought two copies just so I would not be without it again and keep one in my car and one in my office. The words are included so you can understand the meaning of this chant of "loving kindness" towards all others.

I've been listening to Imee for years and this is by far the piece that I frequently come back to the most. A beautiful chant/prayer for the world and all of those in it, performed gracefully by Imee over a simple, patient composition. It is the perfect compliment to a day of meditation and mindfulness.

I am discovering Imee's other works (her rendition of The Heart Sutra and Green Tara Sutra are amazing as well) and find that she is an entirely unique presence in the Buddhist mantra world. I hope that she continues to do her work, happily and free from any enmity or danger :)

Thank you!

I saw this shared on Facebook so I went to Amazon to find it and I ordered it. I found this chant to be very beautiful and healing. Beauatiful voice, innocent and comforting. This CD brings to life and makes more vivid a book I am reading about mindfullness. It inspires one to practice the technique of harmlessness with ever more loving kindness and awareness.

The music is lovely and serene. Track one is beautiful to listen to, and track two in English is a wonderful way to practice loving kindness. Miss Imee is full of genuine loving kindness and it flows out of her music to enchant the soul. If you like Enya's music, Buddhism, or Asian music you will probably like this.
