our 1st concert of the european tour - vilnius, lithuania
welcomed by gaspar at airport

andreas, our promoter and host - 'so excited..!'
another one bites the dust...
while deva gets down to work
view from hotel window in the old town - totally picturesque and very quaint... indian food for dinner - yeah - who could ask for more.
next night... audience arriving at the concert venue – national concert hall
andreas (promoter), prabuddha (tour manager) and rajen (manager) in the lobby of the theater
our first visit to lithuania – so, many cds to be explored
with love...and many lithuanian voices filling the air...together we became one in sound and silence.
"Dear Deva, Miten, Manose, Maneesh,
"I was listening for your music on CDs and have always felt so much good energy flowing from it... But I have never expected to live something like the experience I have experienced in your concert yesterday! I knew that the moment you wil start singing - I will not be able to resist and I will sing along with you (I have sung all the songs with you - even those I did not know the words by heart, but somehow they went out of my mouth...)
"But I did not think that Lithuanian people - the whole people that came to be with you - will sing along. Usually Lithuanian people are very modest and participate in the concerts just by listening. But you have made them sing! And what and how you and they did it was so awsome!
"Deva, Miten - thank you for the nice songs and ability to participate in singing them... for sharing this beautiful gift of yours... for letting me open up to my ability to give in to the singing, to give in to the music... Thank you Maneesh and Manose for beautiful music... For the energy that has filled the concert hall, the feeling of 'being one', the melting in the sound of the silence, and the silence of the sound... Thank you so much for coming to Lithuania! Be blessed in your journey and mission... Sending my warm hugs."
