My name is Ullamaya Ma. My birth name is Ulla-Maija Kivimäki. The purpose of this website is to house and communicate my creative projects, musical adventures, spiritual pilgrimages and discoveries in the world of music and the Yoga of Sound, which I want to share with my family and old & new friends, both nearby and in faraway lands (hello Lapland!)
For decades, my life and work have been inspired by studies of the yogic sciences and music. Many entries will celebrate Indian classical music, which is fundamentally spiritual and one of my great loves.
Sacred, devotional music and world music, which I study and practice, are always there. And may our lives always be filled with kirtan......
Amalam Internet Arts & Communication is my business in New York, where I am based. ‘Amalam’ is Sanskrit and means ‘pure, white, spotless, faultless, uncontaminated, free of material qualities, transparent, crystal clear, mountain crystal ‘.
