Lee Harvey Osmond


Canadian psychedelic folk (and blues and rock) band Lee Harvey Osmond is a music project of Tom Wilson. Their latest album "Beautiful Scars" (2015) is an absolute jewel, one of the most interesting albums of the last months. Check it out and don't miss also "A Quiet Evil" (2010) and "The Folk Sinner" (2013).

In a Meditative Mood

The singing of kirtan("chant of the holy names") and prayers is a powerful means to achieve an instant state of bliss and meditation:  chanting with concentration and devotion while sitting with your back straight, you attain a complete, spontaneus harmony between body, mind and spirit. "Siksastakam" is an Hindu prayer to Shri Krishna: together with the beautiful images of this video, it leads you in a contemplative and joyous state of consciousness....
(The video is from "Mystic India", a film about the life and spiritual journey of ascetic Nilkanth, later known as Swaminarayan by his devotees)
