Beyond Love Within
The 3th Beyond album "Love Within" was released at the 6th of June 2014. The Beyond Team has a new member. Sawani Shende-Sathaye joined the group.
Here is more info about Regula Curti, Dechen Shak-Dagsay and Sawani Shende-Sathaye.
As a Singer and Music therapist I experience the healing potential of sound and music daily.
It moves and transforms. Singing prayers empowers this healing force even more.
For all this reason I established the BEYOND FOUNDATION, which supports music projects to bridge differences between religions and cultures for tolerance and peace, to heal and uplift.
On the new album LOVE WITHIN I unite with three women of different races and beliefs.
We are all rooted in our tradition and share the vision to cultivate peace and happiness through the vibration of our voices.
My wish is to open hearts for unconditional giving and love in action.
I am grateful to Tina, Dechen, Sawani and to all musicians on this album for giving their talents and devotion, to Sr. Domenica Dethomas, Prioress of Benedictine convent of St. John, Müstair, who helped me research ancient Christian texts and melodies.
I also like to thank my Guru H.H. Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji, my inspiration for a life in service of God and humanity and to Anna Sims, my vocal focus and breathing specialist.
Infinite thanks to my husband Beat for founding the BEYOND FOUNDATION with me.
I bow to all my ancestors and family who transmitted the joy and gift of music and singing to me.
I am happy to be contributing the Buddhist prayers to the third BEYOND album LOVE WITHIN.
It is dedicated to the motherly love in us all.
There is no love stronger than unconditional love of a mother for her child.
Even though my mother passed away, there is not a single day in my life that I don’t think of her with great affection for giving all her love and care.
Although being born after my mother had escaped from Tibet, I was infused with the Buddhist way of thinking.
We believe in the law of cause and effect, in rebirth and that all beings could have been our mothers.
Our wish is to give back the love and kindness of all our mothers.
I feel very privileged to sing the Buddhist prayers and to inspire so many people in this world with the message LOVE WITHIN.
I would like to thank Venerable Dagsay Rinpoche, my father and spiritual teacher, for his valuable guidance and advice, Amala Dagsay Yischi Tsedön la, my beloved mother who taught me to be an inspiration of joy to the people, Mola Dzayum Dechen Pemo la, my unforgettable grandmother whom I admire for her noble grace and wisdom.
I also want to thank my family and all my friends for their great support for my music and for being my biggest fans.
DEWA CHE FOUNDATION
Proceeds go to the DEWA CHE Foundation, which supports peace-promoting projects for children and youths inside and outside of Tibet.
Amongst others Tsedön Clinic in East Tibet, education programs for the advancement of talented youths and projects for the preservation of Buddhist Tibetan culture.

I am blessed to be a part of the BEYOND and sing along with Tina Turner, Regula Curti, and Dechen Shak-Dagsay.
LOVE WITHIN is not just any other album.
It is special to my heart because we are singing to share the message of love and peace.
I believe that music is the easiest and fastest way to please the Almighty!
The merging of prayers from different religions enables us to understand, that mankind is the only true religion on earth, love and peace are its true pillars.
I bow in front of the All Mighty to be a part of BEYOND and thus be His messenger!
I am grateful to the entire team for the joyful collaboration.
I cherish my Gurus Shrimati Kusum Shende, my grandmother and Guru who has groomed me in Indian classical music, Dr. Shri Sanjeev Shende, my father and Guru who has groomed me in Indian semi classical music, Dr. Shrimati Veena Sahasrabuddhe, my Guru and a legendary Indian classical vocalist.
Many thanks to Shri Shrirang Mirajkar, my dear friend and player of tabla on CHILDREN BEYOND, to have introduced me to Regula Curti.
To give back I support the orphanages and the oldage homes in my town, PUNE in India.

Some great photos from the Beyond Crew. Thanks Michael! :D
Here is Tina Turner with "Amazing Grace" and explaining what it is all about. Awesome!
Xaver Walser, the famous film maker, who already created the "Love has no boundaries" documentary for Beyond, also created the "Creative Freedom" Music Video, the trailer for Beyond "Love Within".
Here are photos and comments on the making of that project.
Creative freedom is a wonderful luxury and when it comes around, you should grab it with enthusiasm.
When I was asked to make a music video for the new Beyond II album of Tina Turner, Regula Curti, Dechen Shak-Dagsay and Sawani Shende-Sathaye I jumped at the opportunity.
The introduction track, composed by Roland Frei included all the different genres of the album in one song. This is great for introducing an album, but my job was to create a story with a simple comprehensive idea that could include all of the genres in one. When breaking it down, it came down to a gesture of unconditional love, and that's what I worked with.
I developed a simple story about a homeless child, rescued from the street by a dance teacher. She gave her a place to stay and introduced her to the world of tap dancing. Parallel to that and to the delight of one of her older patients, a nurse is buying roses from a florist in Venice. The paths of the nurse and the child once crossed briefly to complete the story. A simple tale that took me to so many cool places. Of course I always wanted to go to Venice and experience the floating city for myself. Together with material I shot in India one year ago I also had to film in several places around Switzerland. Engadin, Davos and Zurich.
Like always, it's super humbling to be working with Tina Turner. She is such an amazing person and we can all learn from this woman. Under crazy circumstances she fought against all the odds and this took her to superstar status. A huge thank you to Regula Curti for giving me creative freedom, always believing in me and trusting that I will make it happen once more. The entire rest of the team - a massive thank you for this opportunity and congratulations on an amazing album.
The entire Amazing Grace song
Here it is! The “Mother" Videoclip!
“BEYOND have come up with a wonderful way to celebrate this year’s mothers day:
A new video has been created for the song “Wisdom? which is featured on their new album “LOVE WITHIN BEYOND".
In the video, you will be able to see a beautiful collection of pictures which fans were asked to send in. The pictures show mothers in different situations, with and without their children, thus celebreating and honoring mothers worldwide.
What a great videoclip it is, the “Mother" videoclip. Love it! :D
Here is another quotation out of it:
After the release of the "Beyond Love Within" there was an afterparty in Zürich - May 2014
Tina Turner was present there.
Here are some lovely photos of it!
