Ancient Vedic faith 'Felix Maria Woschek's beautiful, warm voice sings ancient, Vedic songs of faith in a way that brings them into a European spiritual landscape. (...) Ultimately it is quite unimportant which religion the singing celebrates. Who knows God needs no religion. The experience that really overcomes the listener is a deep, satisfying faith. The Indian mantras that Woschek sings become a 'vehicle' for everything that they 'transport': liberation, love, peace, grace, bliss. 'The true significance', as Woschek says, 'cannot be appreciated by any translation, but only in the heart itself.' Nevertheless, a sensitively worded explanation is provided to help the listener to understand each of the mantras. I was most particularly moved by the title piece, 'So Ham', the great mantra of one-ness so urgently recommended by Muktananda. Woschek sings it with an urgency that tells the listener: 'Thou art this ... Thou art the universe ... Thou art God ... In Thee are all things ... '. Joachim Ernst Berendt.
