Tina Turner and The Children Beyond Project

I had been sitting on an email that Dad had sent me in early January. I hadn't had a chance to open it and all it said was "Tina Turner" with the only message "Hope you like it". I had this sinking feeling he had sent some awful "dad" joke (you know the ones!) and it would have parodied one of my favourite artists*. The email was buried within a week and I completely obliterated from my memory. But something drew me to it today and left a lasting impression.

The Divine Ms Turner has participated in beautiful Buddhist-inspired project "Children Beyond" sharing a message of peace and unity, that goes beyond religion.  

To have a beautiful sanskrit mantra performed by an artist for whom I have the greatest admiration, was the sunshine in my day. The mantra simply means

May well-being, peace, wholeness and tranquility, happiness and prosperity be achieved by all.

Please enjoy in the spirit in which it is shared. Namaste.

*Around this time I guess I need to confess what my long running passion for Tina Turner is and why it is something that comes up in my family constantly - they're getting a near 30 year run on this now! When I was a little girl I used to do impressions of her (no one else). I would don a short tube dress, wild up my hair and whack on some makeup and lip sync entire songs with complete dance moves. My husband has been asking me to show him for 13 years. He can wait!
