Let’s gather together for 7 Days of Mantra Chanting, to bring in the New Year with a wave of prayer and blessings.
January 1 – January 7, 2021, 5pm – 6pm PST
Each evening I will choose one mantra and sing it with you for an hour. No talking, aside from saying hello and explaining the words.
The world is sorely in need of healing vibrations and, by singing together from the depths of our hearts, we can ‘ripple outward’ and help envelope the planet in a blanket of ‘Mantra Love’.
May 2021 be a year of peace and hope!
Love and gratitude,
Bhakti Yoga is the expression of the soul’s deepest longing to connect with God. It is the Yogic path of love, wherein every desire and every action to fulfill that desire is directed to the Source of all, the Divine Beloved, who goes by so many names. Through the practices of Bhakti (Kirtan, Japa, Dance, etc.) our relationship with that sweet Beloved becomes more and more intimate, personal and unique. We become mad for Him and He reciprocates a thousandfold.
(Of course that ‘He’ can be changed to a ‘She’! RADHE!!!! MAA!!!!!). And as we sing in passionate yearning, the sound of our melodies and mantras spreads out and touches our neighbors, both sentient and non-sentient, and a wave of love flows through the universe.
We ‘practice’ Bhakti Yoga, but truly we are just waiting, sometimes patiently and sometimes in anguish, for the merciful grace that only the Lord can bestow….. To bide our time we sing, love each other, feed each other and try our best to be kind to one another, for what else can we do until He finally meets us in the secret arbor of Love.
