President Obama Appreciates "The Peace Formula"
When President Obama received the lyrics to "The Peace Formula" he so much appreciated them that he wrote to Sankarshan Das as follows on 24 December 2015:
The White House, Washington
Thank you for writing. Messages like yours serve as an important reminder of the work that still lies ahead, and they reflect a commitment to staying engaged in shaping the future we know is possible. As long as I’m President, I’ll keep pouring everything I have into securing a brighter tomorrow for people across our country.
Again, thank you for writing. By embracing hope and speaking out on issues that matter to you, you can help make a difference. I want you to know I’m listening, and I wish you all the best.
I pray that this greets you in health and bliss. I came across your music online and it felt like some divine providence ---that I was meant to hear it. Your songs have a simple delightfulness. Upon listening additional times--a true potency is discovered. Yes! Peace is possible and worthy of pursuing. Your music is the sweet soundtrack of looking inward,loving outward and humanity progressing forward and upward. So beautiful.
Your vocals have the warmth and sincerity of a home-coming. Your lyrics resonates as ocean deep.
I loved your song "Talkin' Keep Austin Weird"! The perfect blend of colloquial fun and philosophy. Loved it. Many thanks for glorifying Srila Prabhupad and his message in this way. More power to ya!

What you are doing is very important. You need to keep doing it. A lot of people here in town in Austin, you know, it's changing. It's turning corporate and they're all checking out. But we all need to be reminded of what you are talking about. It's a good message. Keep it going."

"Your song, 'The Peace Formula,' is something special with it heartfelt vocals and lyrics with profound meaning. A new release of this magnitude does not come along very often. Highest recommendation!"--Matthew B.
