I always liked mantras and I never had to take the effort to learn them. Only after becoming a mother, I could explore my voice while singing as this was often the only "spiritual" practice I could do on the go. To my own surprise as an amateur singer, I could feel my own voice improving and filling my whole being with love and peace. My students have finally motivated me to record the mantras chanted at Arsha Yoga and now I have managed to put them up on our website along with their text and meaning for free download: www.arshayoga.org/chants.
The word mantra consists of 2 words: manas (mind) and trai (to be free from). Therefore mantra is a tool to make your mind free from unwanted thoughts and attain peace of mind, even if it is only for a few minutes 🙂 Download, listen, chant and become free! #powerofmantra #meerayoga
Sometimes, the truth lies somewhere else than what we can see with our naked eye. It all depends on the viewpoint. This is also the aim of our retreats: step out of your comfort zone and go beyond the familiar and obvious to discover a whole new dimension of your life. Tomorrow we welcome 7 guests from the UK and 1 guest from the Czech Republic for the South Indian Ashram Retreat with my yoga colleague and dear friend Pradhipa. #arshayoga #pradhipayoga
Today we visited Swamiji in the Narayanashrama Tapovanam, where the Bhagavad Gita retreat will take place starting on November 21st. You can see knowledge and mindfulness at every step. Nothing is done accidentally here. If you want to experience Swamiji's teaching, there are still seats available. What else to add? Food is delicious and the melody of the Bhagavad Gita chanting will find its' way deep into your heart. #swamibhoomanandatirtha #narayanashramatapovanam #bhagavadgitaretreat
