On 30th January, 2010 the band Kíla launched their new album, ‘Soisín’. An album of slower, more reflective melodies, the title of which came from Máire O’Halloran’s book, ‘Pure Heart, Enlightened Mind’. Máire ‘Soshin’ O’Halloran was a young Dublin woman who travelled to Japan to join a Zen buddhist monastery and in three short years came to be regarded as a buddhist Bodhisattva or saint of compassion. For the cover image we chose to use the symbolic image of the lotus flower, which represents unstained purity and awakening throughout all Buddhist traditions.
