about

"Mirror of the Heart" is inspired by the passion, depth and devotion of Sufi, Middle-Eastern and Indian music. The mostly acoustic sound is spiced up with occasional Western (electronic) ingredients. Prafuls trademark instruments Bansuri (Indian Bamboo Flutes) & Sax lead the way, but featured are also many (Eastern) stringed instruments from different cultures and world percussion. An impressive line-up of guest musicians from Turkey, Persia, India and Europe supported Praful to create a ri ch, colorful world-sound. Praful sings lead vocals on 4 songs, the lyrics being based on English translations of poems by Sufi mystics Rumi, Hafiz and words by Praful himself. Featured guest vocalists on 2 songs each are Pakistani Sufi singer Shahzad Ali Khan and Australian Earth-chantess Peruquois.

Track Name: The Eyes of a Miracle

Track Name: Ready to Dare
Everybody has a song to sing
everybody has a secret dream
everybody has a sacred gift to share
Everybody has a path to walk
everybody has love to shine
everybody has a heart ready to dare
To you I give myself
In you I find myself

Everybody is longing to connect
everybody is a mirror to reflect
everybody is utterly perfect
Everybody is crystal clear
nobody has anything to fear
everybody has a song to sing right here
To you I give myself
In you I find myself

I am Self
Track Name: Love Found Me

Track Name: Cry for the Sun

Track Name: I Saw You
I Saw You
and became silent
no words to say
nobody left to speak

I Saw You
and became empty
this emptiness
more beautiful tam existence

Comes a Time
when nothing is meaningful
except
surrendering to Love.
Track Name: Meet them Laughing
This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they're a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of it's furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
Track Name: Arabesque
Main Ta Aan Teryaan
Sohneyan Ghar Aaja

I’m yours entirely

Beloved, please, come back home
Don’t let go of me
Track Name: Lotus Dance
Dance with me
Dance with me will you be my Love
Open me like a Lotus bud
Dance with me will you be my Love
Dance with me will you be my Love
Open me like a Lotus bud
Spin me in this cosmic motion
Open me with your devotion
Track Name: Secret Vaults of Heaven
Tender words we speak to one another
are sealed in the secret Vaults of Heaven
One day like rain they will fall to Earth
and grow green all over the world
My dear how can i be
more loving to you
How can I be more kind
see but beauty and your light
Come and hold me
let our souls be one tonight
