Bhakti Mantra Chanting & Singing Guided Meditation with Nikhil

The practice of mantra chanting deepens the concentration and devotion, calms the mind and improves the awareness. It is a rhythmical repetition of a song, prayer, word or sound. It is one of the most ancient spiritual practices and according to the Indian yoga tradition, sound is healing and sacred. In addition, Bhakti yoga is a powerful devotional practice as it is believed that chanting a name of a deity helps one to get in communion with the divine. Chanting opens the heart; stills, focuses and calms the mind; and offers the benefits of a yoga class or meditation, without the struggle or the striving to concentrate.

The cost is Rs. 400 for guests, Rs. 300 for guests under 30 years old, Rs. 200 for Auroville volounteers, and on donation for Aurovilians & Auroville New Comers.
