Dalai Lama will release first album in July

Inner World, the Dalai Lama’s first album is set to be released on July 6, his 85th birthday. The 11-track project, featuring teachings and mantras by the Da­lai Lama set to music, was re­leased in conjunction with a companion booklet.

“The entire purpose of this project is to try to help people,” said Junelle Kunin, a New Zealand Buddhist who first had the idea for the album. “It’s not a Buddhist project, it’s to help everyday people like myself, even though I am Buddhist. The messages couldn’t be more poignant for our current social climate and needs as humanity.”
