Adoration 2 is a collection of sacred yoga love songs and the highly anticipated follow on to the first excellent Adoration CD. Michael and the incredible Chant Band deliver yet another polished performance, saturated with devotion. Not all tracks are from Paramahansa Yogananda's Cosmic Chants, nevertheless, the selection of music is nicely balanced, ending with Into the West from the movie soundtrack to Lord of the Rings. This CD is dedicated with love and gratitude to Paramahansa Yogananda.

About the artist: Michael Dunn brings to the ancient art of kirtan a devotional intensity and simplicity that many have found profoundly moving. For the last fifteen years, Michael has led kirtan meditations at the SRF's Lake Shrine temple in Pacific Palisades, California.

After an award-winning fifteen year career in theatre and music, Michael heeded an inner need for a spiritual sabbatical and began work many years ago as a vegetarian cook at the Lake Shrine ashram, immersing himself in the teachings of Yogananda. His beginnings as a kirtan artist can be traced to an earthquake! The 1994 Los Angeles temblor left the Lake Shrine short of a kirtan leader (who chose to move to a more stable tectonic plate) and the head monk there asked Michael to learn the harmonium. Years of leading chants and meditations followed, culminating in a pilgrimage to India for the Maha Kumbha Mela in 2001. There he learned chants from the monks of Yogoda Satsanga Society at Dakshineswar, and at a Himalayan retreat in Dwarahat, near the cave of Mahavatar Babaji. This pilgrimage also planted the seeds of what would become the CD, "Adoration " Chants for Meditation" which has earned much acclaim from devotees around the world.

After performing many joyful kirtans in Southern California and around the U.S., Michael is now bringing devotional chant to interfaith gatherings around the world - in Assisi last summer for The Global Peace Initiative of Women at a summit of contemplatives on The Divine Feminine; in Washington D.C. this fall at the American Alliance of Contemplatives, and at a global gathering of spiritual leaders during the crucial United Nations Conference on climate change in Copenhagen.

It is Michael's hope that these chants will find a place in your heart.

Adoration2 January 23, 2013
Reviewer: Sonia Howell from St. James, Barbados  
Even though the rendition of the chants with which I am familiar is different to that which I am accustomed, the CD is still inspirational.  It is difficult to read the words to them on the enclosed leaflet.

devotion and its moods July 17, 2012
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from New England  
I hesitated to get this, as I didn't think it could be as lovely as his first Adoration album.  I have listened to several of the songs after meditation, and they are indeed lovely musically, with a devotional feel to them.  Some of the songs are quieter, more reflective - Listen to my soul song & The water is wide.  Others are more active - hare Krishna & Radha Krishna Govinda. I have heard God, Krishna, Christ Gurus on Guru Sharanam, very quiet and reflective.  This rendition is more joyous in mood and less contemplative; I like them both very much.
