On the occasion of Mahashivratri, 11th March 2021, singer-composer – music producer Nuka (Anushka Manchanda) releases her 6 track, Mahamrityunjay Album. ‘I am Seeking’ is a brand that she envisioned in the lockdown last year that transcends religion, creed, and race. Under this specific brand, Nuka releases audio-video pieces, experiences, and products that live in the spiritual realm. It is built around mantras, vibrations, and frequencies with the intention to heal ourselves, so we can heal the world.
Talking about the Mahamrityunjay Mantra, Nuka said, “I was 9 when I heard this mantra for the first time. Through the years that followed I found myself going back to it whenever someone I loved was sick or in danger. I have derived a lot of strength from this powerful mantra, and I feel compelled to share it with others who could benefit from it, the way I have.”

With the first release under ‘I am Seeking’, she takes from her own experiences and offers a deep dive into the world of the Mahamrityunjay Mantra. Deeply researched to create multi-lingual (English and Hindi) audiobooks and explaining the significance of the 108 Jaap, the story of the mantra’s creation, and how it affects us. Conceptualised and executed by Nuka, the softer, electronically produced textures infused with live violins by Shravan Sridhar. Recorded remotely during the lockdown, they are a departure from the usual intense versions of this mantra, make this a hybrid of digital and analog sounds.
