is a group of musicians, singers and songwriters
from Ananda Ashrama in La Crescenta, California. The actual
members and number of musicians may vary from time to time
but Manohara came into being when the Jizo Peace Center
asked one of the musicians to organize and lead the music
for the First Annual Veteran's Day Peace Chant at the Yoga
Kingdom Sanctuary in Pasadena.
this was not officially an Ananda Ashrama Choir function
we chose a name to represent our little peace band. "Manohara"
is a Sanskrit word that is a name for Shiva, the God of transformation but loosely means "stealer of hearts".
have since released two CD's which can be found in our Music
Manohara will accept engagements and record cd's as they
are inspiried to, for the purpose of promoting peace, healing,
and higher consciousness on our beautiful planet.
