"One of the most potent mantras, Om Mani Padme Hum contains the entire wisdom of the Buddhist teachings in a single phrase. It is essentially a reminder to oneself that compassion and "benevolent emptiness" can cut through the illusions that create suffering. Here, multi-instrumentalist Buedi Siebert offers four musical interpretations of the mantra, as well as eight other peaceful, meditation-enhancing instrumentals. Some of the tracks feature Siebert's flute--bird-like, searching--and others focus on the chanting. The stunning "Lotus Call Part 1 (Vajra Guru Mantra)" needs little else but its basso profundo throat-singing and minimal musical backing. It's been said that just listening to chants can have the same mind-soothing benefits as actively chanting. Whether listeners choose to participate or just bask in the sound, OM MANI PADME HUM is a great place to start to connect with power of mantra." (Cduniverse)

On this recording, named for an easy-to-recite Buddhist chant that is the essence of the Buddha's heart, Buedi Siebert takes the path of peace to a specific place, as easy to visualize as a clear-air gust of wind high on a mountain in Tibet. Westerners seeking some basic knowledge of Buddhist philosophy will enjoy the simple but informative liner notes that explain the source of this soothing, ambient music that incorporates Siebert's lush, dreamy guitar lines and his mastery of numerous indigenous flutes. There are also soaring vocals by Dorothea Ferber and other chants by male voices. The short version of the title track opens the disc by creating an inviting and soul-lifting Asian atmosphere that is easy to hum along with. Some of the tunes just float sweetly along while others, like "The Lotus People," feature more jangly, percussive beats. On that particular tune, the mantra is reprised with a mix of voice and flute. Siebert lends an even truer air of authenticity with "Lotus Call, Pt. 2," which features authentic chanting Buddhist monks. At the very minimum, the listener will be transported into a very relaxing place. Hopefully, the complexities of the music beneath the basic "Om" will inspire deeper meditation and possibly study into the philosophy that inspired it. (Jonathan Widran)
