London Study Retreats: Mantras – Sacred Sound of Power

28 October – 1 November, 2017

Arrival: 7pm, 27 October | Departure: 3.30pm, 1 November

Call to Register

A mantra is a mystical energy encased in a sound structure. Every mantra contains within its vibration a specific power. Upon concentration and repetition of a given mantra, its power and energy take form. The benefits of the mental repetition of a mantra and the chanting of mantras are immeasurable. Mantras open the heart, fill the mind with purity and generate harmony and divine love.

“Every mantra has got tremendous force. A mantra is a mass of radiant energy. It helps the spiritual power and reinforces it.”
– Swami Sivananda

Course textbook: Meditation and Mantras by Swami Vishnudevananda and Meditation on OM and Mandukya Upanishad by Swami Sivananda
