"For many years I dreamed about making an album for the greatest lovers and divine principles Radha and Krishna. Finally, my longyear friend Jožan Púry encouraged me to do so. Everything was made possible thanks to a very very devoted musician, sound engineer and friend Michal Ditrich. I am grateful for all of his inspiring remarks, by which he gave my ideas the right direction and then made the realization easy. This loving piece of work would not have come into existence without his help.

For long years I have been sending my love into our world and the whole spiritual universe through my thoughts, my heart and now also through sound vibration. May your hearts be filled with love so that you could give it to everybody around.

Jaya Radhe, jaya Krshna"

Jiří Mazánek

Krishna is the greatest divine Person.                            

He is full of Existence, Consciousness and Bliss.         

Like Govinda has no Origin,

because He is the Origin of everything                          

and He is the cause of all causes.                                                              

(Brahma sanhita 5.1)
