THE JOURNEY
Early in life, Mahalakshmi discovered a lifeline in music.
Songs came to her ear beyond any conscious intent.
Music sprung forth in automatic fashion by her emotions
and arrived with words and chords complete.
It was through sound that she discovered her true nature.
The feeling of this internal discovery was
like uncovering a hidden treasure,
like finding fresh air after struggling for breath.
Her work is writing and performing music
to bathe in the beauty of the soul, and to share this with You.

In her early years, as it is today, visual arts and writing
remain outputs of her creativity,
however, the only medium she feels fully expresses
her innermost heart is music.
Mahalakshmi wishes to gift the world this music from her soul
as it comes from the place where we all meet as one.

She is a reiki healer
and music is an extension of her healing practice.



HER GURU
Mahalakshmi feels eternally blessed to be a devotee of
Hairakhan Mahavatar Babaji,
an Avatar of Shiva
who resided in the foothills of the Himalayas at Hairakhan, India.
Having found herself at Babaji's ashram,
she traveled ever-deeper to the center,
receiving knowledge of the secrets of the mystery of life.
These invaluable experiences inform her music.

She has studied Indian Classical music with
Chhote Rahimat Khan (sitar) and
Geetika Varde (vocals).
