Lata Mangeshkar cuts an album for Jain community

lata-mangeshkar1024x768Mumbai: Lata Mangeshkar has recorded an album of bhajans and chants for the Jain community and she got herself a linguistic teacher to guide her through all the traditional devotional chants.

Lata says doing album was a special challenge.

“Somewhere they felt that their religious teachings and mantras have so far not been properly articulated. I am happy and relieved that they think my rendition does justice to their sacred teachings,” she said.

“Years later when I recorded the ‘Bhagavad Gita’ for my brother Hridaynath Mangeshkar, I hired another Sanskrit teacher to make sure that I got the nuances correct,” she added.
