Lee Mirabai Harrington
August 12, 2016
Hailed as "one of the best kept secrets in the chant world," Lee (Mirabai) Harrington is emerging as one of the most powerful and unique vocalists in the mantra music/kirtan scene. A self-described "spiritual hybrid," Lee leads chants from Buddhist, Hindu and Sikh traditions. For decades, she has explored how these combinations of practices and teachings can enrich the body, mind and spirit. With a musical background in rock and roll and gospel, Lee loves to lead high-spirited, uptempo kirtans, combining the metta and wisdom energies of Buddhist mantras with heart-opening euphoria of the devotional Bhakti tradition and the scientific precision of Gurmukhi mantra and mudras. Her practice of Tibetan medical mantras also adds a level of profound healing to the experience.
Lee's first album of mantra music , "BEYOND THE BEYOND: a MANTRA MUSIC EXPERIENCE" was leased 2/5/16 with Spirit Voyage Records. (Copies will be available for sale at Hamptons Kirtan event!) Gary Goldberg of WRPI radio says: "Lee Harrington has created one of the most beautiful kirtan cd's ever... this is a great album in a category of its own".
For her day job, Lee is an author, editor and university professor. She is also a long-time student of sound healing and Kundalini yoga and is a certified Pranic Healer. In 2016 will enter into a seven-year Buddhist Magyu training program with Lama Tsultrim Allione. A committed animal lover and animal activist, she volunteers at a local animal shelters in her spare time, where she offers energy healing to and sings mantras to the dogs. She dedicates the merit of all her spiritual practices to the benefit of all sentient beings.
Through the recitation of ancient Divine Names, sacred mantras and sacred syllables, we can align ourselves with devine energies and achieve a state of unity, oneness, transformation and inner peace. May all benefit!
