    “In her latest release, Shi De: A Call For World Peace, Dechen graces us with Tibetan songs on ‘Care for the Animals,’ ‘Respect and Tolerance Between People,’ ‘Care for the Environment,’ ‘A World Without Weapons’ and others. These enchanting peace chants, with music composed by Dechen, include her voice overlays and gentle accompaniments on guitar, sitar, tanpura, and keyboard creating a soothing, melodic East-West fusion.
    Dechen writes, Shi De is Tibetan for ‘peace that brings happiness.’ All the people of this world have one thing in common: we all want to live in peace and happiness and be spared all suffering. These all-important subjects prompted my father, the venerable Dagsay Tulku Rinpoche, to write these Tibetan songs of peace in the hope that they might help strengthen peace and happiness in the world. New Earth Records helps support the cause of the Tibetan people and the work of Tibet House, USA.”

    “There are some things in life that you can count on. Every two or three years {Madonna} will find a way to get back into the center of public attention; {Axl Rose} is never going to finish {Chinese Democracy}; and when an album title includes the phrase ‘world peace,’ the music is going to be terrible. In general, you can assume that the more exalted the musician’s extramusical goals, the less important the music will be to him or her (because after all, what do hooks matter when world peace is on the line?). But every rule has its exceptions, and here’s the exception to that one. {Dechen Shak-Dagsay} has the kind of sweet, unaffected voice that cynical musos and dewy-eyed New Agers alike can’t help but enjoy, and her accompaniment on this album is a spare but elegant combination of guitar, sitar, and the occasional barely-there keyboard or tanpura. The melodies are simply and heartbreakingly lovely, and the lyrics are all sung in Tibetan – but translations are available in the booklet, so if you want to hear about how all the animals of the earth may have been our mothers at some time, or if you want to be exhorted to “affectionate friendship” and “sincere helpfulness,” you’re all set. If, on the other hand, you want nothing more than to luxuriate in the heart-lifting beauty of the music itself, you can do that even more easily. Highly recommended to all Type A personalities.”

    “Dechen’s voice is musically enchanting, magically entrancing, and conveys the mystic calm and clarity of wisdom and compassion. Her pure voice cuts through the veil of mental static and succeeds in a direct sharing of their deep sense of immanent peace and bliss, from heart to heart. It conveys the Dharma in all its brilliant reality.”

  4. :

    “A lyrical, chanting flow of songs. The simple vocals and melodies become an appeal to meditate and reflect. The music is suitable for yoga and times of reflection.”

  5. :

    “Another quite delicate selection of songs–with lyrics written by Dechen’s father, Dagsay Rinpoche–all of which exhort us to strive to achieve world peace, for Shi De, the “peace that brings happiness”.
    Although there isn’t a lot of diversity in either the presentation or melodies, nevertheless the songs create a sense of peace and tranquility in the listener, helping in some way, to bring quietness into our own lives for even a short time, with the hope, perhaps, that we can carry this harmony into the world.”
