This week's submisison is from Dominque Diglio, the album: Songs for Tara
"The title was given to me thanks to Lama Losang Samten instructing us in White Tara initiation and providing me with a wave of long unfelt emotion flooding open. Still now I’m grateful, and even in terms of the liner notes, dedicated this album to Lama Losang, my teacher, and to the sangha at TBC.  Thank you for your boundless loving kindness and being a living bodhisattva in these weary days."
-Dominique Diglio
