Ultra rare privately released psych album from Los Angeles . Comes complete with insert and 16-page book and insert sheet. 

Not in Acid Archives, although it blows away other mid-1970's spiritual folk like New Troubadours. 
One side titled "this world", and one side titled "a different world". Instruments used include guitar, keyboards, synthesizer and flute on one track, violin on one track, and harmonica on one track. There are sound effects in some parts including what sounds like a cat meowing in an alleyway and ocean sounds. 
Its a real trippy listen. Comes with a 16 page booklet which includes a 2 page interview with siddha about the record. 12 inch poster insert which has a picture of some indian ladies in fog on one side and the back has people who played instruments on it. 

Jagad Guru Chris Butler's spiritual quest began in his teens. He founded the Haiku Meditation Center in Hawaii. By the time he was only 20 years old, he was widely recognized throughout the Hawaiian Islands and the West Coast of America  as a self-realized yogi and master of the astanga and kundalin yoga systems....~



"A flower is by nature soft, sweet, and fragrant. So are we....but due to being covered up by layers of material elements we appear hard, even to ourselves...we desire to love and be loved...the rock does not love; matter is dead energy...A corpse fails to exhibit love...I want to feel love for you. I don't want to see you or treat you as a 'thing" or object to exploit or use...I want to be friends with you...But real friendship is deeper than cocktail party friendship...I want to taste unlimited, eternal love. I am tired of living in a world of hard-heartedness, not just others, but my own also. I'm tired of living, yet being dead. I am tired of having conversations, but never communicating. I'm tired of singing, but being without a song. I'm tired of having friends, yet never knowing them...I humbly ask to be forgiven by anyone of you who may consider me to be a fool or wishful thinker for wanting to go beyond the artificial suffering world which we all know...transported to the eternal realm of...Krishna, the real friend of each of us." ~Siddha, November 1975....~
