Dechen Shak-Dagsay

Dechen Shak-Dagsay

I fell in love with the voice and music from the outset in 2001, giving me the complete sense of being one with myself. And ever since I apply Dechen Shak-Dagsay chants in my daily life, she is a Jewel in all aspects!

She has recently made a new album name "Jewel" that I am dying to get my hands on. In the mean time I will be patient and am so proud to feature her on Edwinno. For the sake of simplicity of being and perfect balance and harmony I recommend this for inclusion in your daily life. for a little taste!

Her new album is for sale at: ExLibris, Musik Hug, Jecklin or Media Markt


Dechen Shak-Dagsay is a contemporary singer of traditional Tibetan Buddhist mantras. She is the Tibetan-born daughter of the Venerable Dagsay Tulku. Born in India in 1961/2, in first year of the Chinese occupation of Tibet, Dechen fled with her family to Switzerland in 1965, where she has resided ever since.

Strongly committed to "preserving Tibetan culture in the West," Dechen studied and performed traditional Tibetan music and dance throughout her childhood and adolescence. However, she considers herself to be truly a product of Eastern and Western culture. As an adult, she pursued a successful career as a marketing executive in Zurich.

In 2001, Dechen recorded and released Dewa Che: The Universal Healing Power of Tibetan Mantras. Although the album was intended as singular creative side-project, its success far surpassed the artist's expectations. In 2002, Dechen was signed to PolyglobeMusic Austria and signed an additional contract with the US-based label New Earth Records in 2004, thus affording her music access to North American markets.

In 2005, Dechen left her job to pursue her career in music full-time. 2006 saw the release of Shi De: A Call For World Peace. The artist describes the album as "A collection of powerful Tibetan peace songs that calls on all people to participate in the healing of the world.

“I hope I can reach out as far as possible with these songs of peace—they are a strong statement about community-in-action and about working together toward a common goal. Together, we can make a difference. Together we can make our world a better place.”

In May, 2006, Dechen was accompanied by Swiss National Television on a trip to Tibet to follow-up her social projects including a central clinic and orphanage schools.

In June 2009 she released an Album with American singer Tina Turner called "Beyond" and is featured Regula Curti and Seda Bagcan.

Well, my plans changed today or should I say they were cancelled. I sat lost for a few hours, lost in thought, lost in the moment. It was a lovely thing. I realize I can change and go forward with some nice freedom, inspired by this story. I stopped a moment and wrote this comment and now I go.

Nice recount! Dreams are an interesting glance into our minds and seem quite elusive for me, remembering dreaming and forgetting the content most times. Is there something I am missing? Probably

good rules vs bad rulesFollowing rules was extreme programming from infancy for me. First rule: You are here to help your mother, You are the servant of your family. I was taught to be an adult as an infant and only recently found the un-nurtured infant inside. In finding my infant I was able to stop crying for what seemed to be no reason. I have learned through much therapy that some rules are a method of abuse. I have learned to use better judgement in following rules. Some rules are for our...
