With the cd BEYOND we wish to share our vision that whoever we may be, whatever religion we may come to - when we pray and our prayers come from the deepest of our hearts, a transformation takes place and we find ourselves Beyond right and wrong . We experience the immense power of deep spirituality whenever we chant together although each person is praying in his own tradition. In this CD we have Tina Turner chanting three Buddhist prayers and a spiritual message, Dechen Shak-Dagsay singing Buddhist prayers, and Regula Curti singing Christian prayers.

This CD is wonderful! The idea behind it is great (blending prayers and chants from Buddhist and Christian traditions, helping to bring people from both belief systems together) which is why I bought the CD. Plus I'm a big Tina Turner fan. But if I wasn't a fan and someone just handed me the CD, I'd still be sold because the compositions are absolutely beautiful as are the voices of all three ladies. The music is empowering, uplifting and relaxing at the same time. I listen whenever I need some time for peace and rejuvenation.
I also love the packaging. There's a booklet that explains the meaning and origin of each chant as well as thoughts from the Dalai Lama and a prominent Christian leader who's name I regret I don't remember.
Another great thing about this project is that the proceeds go to various charities. Tina Turner said in an interview that one of them is St. Jude's Children's hospital in Memphis, TN. This CD is well worth the money on so many levels...
I've been a devout Nichiren Buddhist and member of SGI-USA (Soka Gakkai International) for 14 years. Tina Turner's recitation of the Hoben chapter of The Lotus Sutra and the chanting of Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, as we practice in Nichiren Buddhism, are BEAUTIFULLY set to wonderful instrumental orchestration. Information on the practice of Nichiren Buddhism: [...]
Released on Universal Music in Switzerland, Austria and Germany in 2009, "BEYOND" finally becomes available in the US. The album reached platinum in Switzerland which is very special for a release of this kind. Obviously the involvement of Tina Turner has increased the media attention this release got. Besides the chants and spiritual message by Turner, this CD contains buddhist and christian prayers. All songs really compliment eachother in a very nice way. This is a must for Tina fans but also for people who enjoy spiritual music. Profits of this release go to several charities.
