Let us contemplate the radiant Source of all Light
May our minds merge with It,
Thereby awakening our perception and Understanding on all three planes- physical mental vital

BENEFITS : Chanting the Gayatri calms the mind and emotions, thereby preparing us for meditation. It helps to awaken the buddhi ( inner wisdom) , which in turn prepares us for the arising of Awareness. This awakens subtle perception and the capacity to SEE behind ‘the scenes’ into greater Reality . It initiates us in to the process of realising our spiritual Source.
Taken from my teachers book, Mantra Yoga and Ashram Chants by Swami Nishchalananda

Happy chanting!!

May the Supreme Intelligence protect both the teacher and disciple; may it cherish us both.
Let us work together. May we work with abundant energy.
May our studies be full and fruitful.
May we never feel ill will towards others.
Om Peace Peace Peace.

The Sanskrit language, the oldest in history , is a language of resonance and beauty. When we chant in this language we do not need to know the meanings of the words to feel where they resonate in our bodies. The Indian musical scale notes, correspond to the 7 chakra points within the body, which also correspond to the major nerve plexi. We are therefore able to feel the vibration in different parts of the body, to identify areas that may be blocked, to feel resonance which leads to healing.
