The Japan earthquake of March 2011 was one of the five most powerful quakes ever recorded. It triggered powerful tsunami waves reaching heights of up to 133 ft. Nearly 20,000 people were confirmed missing or dead and more than that, again, were left injured.
At the time, Deva Permal and Miten, internationally known musicians famed for putting ancient Sanskrit mantras to meditative music, were working on a remix of their hit song, “In the Light of Love.” They created this heart-touching video as a tribute to Japan, saying:
Later we put images to the music in an attempt to portray the elevation of the human spirit in times of such overwhelming and inconceivable destruction.
It is our tribute to the brave hearts of the Japanese people.
The letter at the end of the clip is a first hand account of a friend of a friend, living in Japan.
