Mantras – sacred sound of power

13 – 17 July

We warmly welcome you for a course that guides us how to use mantras as a tool to connect to inner peace, channel emotions, sooth the nervous system and benefit one’s overall psychological wellbeing. The benefits of the mental repetition and the chanting of mantras are immeasurable. Mantras open the heart, fill the mind with purity and generate harmony and divine love.

This course forms the natural continuation of the meditation and positive thinking courses. The course is recommended for those who have followed one of these courses, or have attended satsangs in any of the Sivananda Centres or Ashrams before.

Study books (not included): ‘The Sivananda Book of Meditation’ & ‘Meditation on OM and Mandukya Upanishad’ from Swami Sivananda

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