It is based on the metaphorical allusions of the Siddhacharyas of Odisha and seeks to recreate the resonance of the metaphors expressed and immanent in Tantrik Buddhism. The lyrics of the songs have been penned down by Haraprasad Das, a Buddhist researcher, poet, and former Accountant General of Odisha. The music has been scored by the well-known composer Om Prakash Mohanty.

The cinematography for the album has been created by artist Kalee Patnaik, and Padma Shri Sudarshan Patnaik has adapted it into sand art. The album is a celebration of the spiritual journey and is set to immerse the soul in the divine harmony of the universe. The release of Deha-Videha is significant, particularly on Buddha Purnima, as it sheds light on the unique history of Buddhism in Odisha and its contribution to the spread of Buddhism worldwide.

In conclusion, Deha-Videha is a must-listen album for all those seeking a spiritual journey and an understanding of the rich history of Buddhism in Odisha. The unique combination of music, lyrics, and cinematography promises to provide a holistic experience that will leave the listeners enchanted and enlightened.
