With the cd BEYOND we wish to share our vision that whoever we
may be, whatever religion we may come to - when we pray and
our prayers come from the deepest of our hearts, a transformation
takes place and we find ourselves Beyond right and wrong . We
experience the immense power of deep spirituality whenever
we chant together although each person is praying in his own
tradition. In this CD we have Tina Turner chanting three Buddhist
prayers and a spiritual message, Dechen Shak-Dagsay singing
Buddhist prayers, and Regula Curti singing Christian prayers.
All religion teaches the virtues of love, altruism and patience, while
showing us how to discipline and transform ourselves to achieve inner
peace and a kind heart. Therefore, they are worthy of our respect.
Music, singing and chanting are powerful ways to express and
communicate such wholesome ideas with and among others. Bringing
together corresponding pieces from Christian and Tibetan Buddhist
traditions, as has been done here, will allow listeners to share in these
prayers, stirring thoughts of deeper respect and peace in their lives. --His Holiness the Dalai Lama
Every faith community has its spiritual bounty that is frequently
displayed in music and song. An encounter with other religions often
leads to the discovery of the riches of one s own faith community. --Abbott Martin Werlen Osb, Abbey of Einsiedeln

I also love the packaging. There's a booklet that explains the meaning and origin of each chant as well as thoughts from the Dalai Lama and a prominent Christian leader who's name I regret I don't remember.
Another great thing about this project is that the proceeds go to various charities. Tina Turner said in an interview that one of them is St. Jude's Children's hospital in Memphis, TN. This CD is well worth the money on so many levels. I'm very happy with it.
This is the first time I have heard "chants" put to beautiful music, and I really love hearing it. Stops my heart and I catch my breath sometimes when these strings are plucked across the chords. The message these three bring to the world is a message of tolerance and peace... the fact that all religions are teaching love and acceptance, and none are teaching hatred and discord. We all need this message in our lives and the world needs it as well.
Kudos to Tina, Dechen Shak-Dagsay and Regula Curti for this wonderful and necessary musical CD. You are helping to change the world and bring peace into the world, just by creating this beautiful music and putting it out there into the world. We need more music, and people, like you!
Would that everyone in the world would embrace it. And I do hope they do many, many more.
The album reached platinum in Switzerland which is very special for a release of this kind. Obviously the involvement of Tina Turner has increased the media attention this release got.
Besides the chants and spiritual message by Turner, this CD contains buddhist and christian prayers. All songs really compliment eachother in a very nice way. This is a must for Tina fans but also for people who enjoy spiritual music.
Profits of this release go to several charities.
Very highly recommended. The other two 'Beyond' albums are sweet variations - but I think this one is the place to start. P.
