A Course in Vedic Chanting

The Vedas are revelations that were heard by ancient Indian sages in a deep meditative state. Collectively, they are the most authoritative source of Indian wisdom. Vedic Sanskrit (literally polished or "refined") is the language of the Vedas. The enormous breadth of wisdom contained in the Vedas was preserved and transmitted from one generation to the next in a purely oral manner.

imgEach verse in the Veda, no matter how brief, is called a Mantra. A Mantra protects and reconnects the individual to that level from where the Mantras originally sprout - the Para, or the Transcendental Reality of life. During this course, you will be taught Vedic Mantras and Slokas to purify and partake food, important and popular Shanti Mantras and the important Ganapati Atharvashirsham, an Upanishad. In the present age, Kali Yuga, Atharva Veda has great importance and therefore Ganapati Atharvashirsham is a potent chant for this age. It will be ensured that each student leaving this course will have memorized and mastered at least a few Vedic Chants to perfection.

Ayurvedic Therapies

In addition to the morning and evening classes of Vedic Chanting all participants will have the opportunity to daily experience the wonderful benefits of Ayurvedic therapies as prescribed after individual consultation with the Ayurvedic physician at Maitreyi. These therapies are purifying and restorative, allowing opening of energy pathways to align us with nature's intelligence and with the flow of Eternal and pure Consciousness.

Ayurvedic treatments balance the internal natural rhythm of our bodies thus helping the mind-body gain an immense rejuvenation and healing. The Vaidya at Maitreyi will also prescribe internal oral medications along with the treatments based on each individual's requirement and suitability.

All course participants will therefore have a chance to experience the resultant antioxidant and bliss promoting effects generated with the assistance of this traditional medical science, in addition to the hours dedicated to Vedic Chanting. The combination in the serene environment of Maitreyi will serve to further integrate and harmonize the body, mind and consciousness.
