More Info

"Dedicated to the great protectors of our realm comes this tributary to the Four Heavenly Kings of Caturmaharajika. Four artists each provide an interpretation of one of the four guardian kings and their continuous efforts to ward off all evil that threatens our world. Expect longform ambient with a mysterious twist. The album comes in a jewelcase with a 16 page booklet.

All hail the purity and splendor of the four mighty protectors of our world. Tirelessly their eyes and ears guard the dominion of man and stave off evil intruders, demons and the grasping hand of death. Holding court on the lower slopes of Mount Sumeru, in Caturmaharajika, the mighty four each govern one of the cardinal directions, protecting the dharma and the virtuous.
