The 108 Upanisads are considered the essence of all the Vedas, and Sri Isopanisad is foremost among them. The readers can discover the distilled essence of all knowledge in these eighteen enlightening verses.
Young poet and hip-hop musician Mikey Jay describes himself as “a wandering soul learning the lessons of life” as he “traverses its diverse path.” For Rama Navami, April 8th, 2014, he came out with a new music album the “Sri Isopanisad”, consisting of 19 songs; an Invocation and 18 songs based on the 18 Mantras of the ancient scripture the Sri Isopanisad.
"Most High: Sri Isopanisad - Mantra One" by Mikey Jay (UK.)
Hip-hop artist Mikey Jay has translated the wisdom-filled Sri Isopanisad into the language of modern poetry, enhanced by eclectic tunes and musical mantras. The Hip-hop album uses the powerful platform of music and poetry to share the timeless wisdom of the text. The lyrics are very closely based on Srila Prabhupada's purports and all the mantras of the text are chanted in a unique way. The album has been written and recorded but needs support to bring it through the final production stages. Mikey Jay is running a crowdfunding campaign, giving supporters an opportunity to pre-order the album and be part of its creation: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/pre-order-sri-isopanisad-the-album/x/5365307 For more info please visit: http://www.mikeyjay108.org
