Deep Dive into
the World of Chanting

Mantra, Music, Kirtan, Harmonium
Chanting mantra is a sacred yogic sadhana. It is a practice of inviting yogic wisdom to directly permeate your life. When you do this with sincerity, these mystical sounds and their healing vibrations have the capacity to open up sacred knowledge, wisdom and peace within you.The word Mantra means man (thought or heart) + tra (tool) so Mantra is a tool to calm the mind and help us access our spiritual heart.

Chanting & Yoga
Chanting tunes the subtle vibrations of the practitioner to the cosmic frequencies. Once tuned, the practitioner can enjoy Yoga—automatic harmony with the Divine, pulsating in the ocean of bliss.

What is Bhakti?
Bhakti, sometimes called Yoga of Feeling or of the Heart, is one of the four main paths of yoga and one of the Five Tenets of Jivamukti. Simply, it means devotion to God, and involves dedicating our practice to something higher than our own ego. Some of the main Bhakti practices cherished by Jivamukti are chanting kirtan, and Satsang. Devotional singing, kirtan, is a bhakti practice, which can elevate the fire of emotion to devotion, and melt away the faithlessness of our hearts which may have become hardened by years of intellectual bondage.

lokāḥ samastāḥ sukhino bhavantu
May all beings everywhere be happy and free, and may the thoughts, words and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all.

saha nāvavatu saha nau bhunaktu
saha vīryaṁ karavāvahai
tejasvi nāvadhītam astu mā vidviṣāvahai
oṁ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ
May God protect us both in togetherness. May he nourish us both in togetherness. May we both work in togetherness with great energy. May our study be vigorous and our meetings be effective to strengthen our togetherness. May we not hate each other destroying our togetherness.

“When I bought kirtan or harmonium courses in the past, I was disappointed... but this course is REALLY AMAZING! It is for beginners but also for “advanced” harmonium players.”

"Chanting with harmonium, listening and becoming still in meditation - all this is essential, if you really are looking for yoga as a way to go beyond the whirling mind.”
