    This song comes from Kashi: Songs from the India Within, Prem Joshua & Chintan’s first new album in over four years. Packed with rich new material from “the guru of Asian Fusion,” Kashi reveals that, in the time since their last release, Prem Joshua and his band have grown tighter and ever more confident as they’ve mastered their signature global jazz sound.
    About “The Best of Things” Prem Joshua writes, “The best of things are not 'things' at all! The secret is simply being in tune. This song is a prayer to the light.”
    With all that’s going on in the world today, that’s a comforting sentiment, and reason enough to like this song. Add to that lyric an upbeat, lounge-y vibe and we have all the makings of a late-summer hit. We hope you enjoy this song as much as we do. As always, if you like it please share it.

about

Touched by the beauty of a sunrise or a sunset, one becomes part of the 'Whole' again. Humbly, naturally, one feels like bowing to the magnificence of this splendour. Isn't it amazing? 'The best of things' are not 'things' at all! The secret is simply being in tune. This song is a prayer to the light.

lyrics

Deepaha Jyothi Parah Brahma
Deepa Sarvothama Upahaara
Deepena Saadhyate Saaram
Sandhya Deepo Namostuthe

The lit lamp is all pervading
The gift that fetches you the best of things
Everything is made possible by the divine light
We prostrate before you, oh twilight
