is the third solo album (after My Goal's Beyond and Extrapolation Devotion) by John McLaughlin. The album was originally released in 1971 on Douglas Records in the US. It was later reissued by Douglas/Casablanca (1976), Elektra/Musician (1982), and in 1987 by Rykodisc on CD and LP. 
The music is strongly influenced by
music of India, and was dedicated to McLaughlin's spiritual leader, Indian guru Sri Chinmoy. Side one has two longer pieces for the whole band, including soprano saxophone, flute, violin and Indian percussion. Side two of the album features eight short compositions (three standards and five originals) played solely by McLaughlin on acoustic guitar.
