Spotted Peccary's description: "Madhavi Devi‘s first solo album on the Spotted Peccary label, THE TRUTH OF BEING, is a heartfelt musical reflection upon the cathartic experience of self-discovery. Drawing from her multi-faceted explorations as both a visual and musical artist, Madhavi Devi (Cheryl Gallagher) delivers a visionary album rich with musical meditations that blur the line between the tranquility of inner peace and the thrill of discovering unexplored personal realms."

In this time-lapsed video, featuring her original music "Palace" from her Tibet album, released on Spotted Peccary Music, a collaborated album with recognized fellow Spotted Peccary artist, Deborah Martin.
