Hari Katha is a form of storytelling focused on the lives of saints and/or stories from Hindu epic scriptures. It often includes music, poetry, dance and philosophy. The intention is to imbibe Truth and righteousness and to immerse in devotion. When we remember and discuss the lives and teachings of great souls, we attune to their divinity. We absorb the wisdom that they have exemplified and shared. During Hari Katha, the format is storytelling and singing with some philosophy mixed in. It is very attractive to the mind and easy to remember. It is very heart-centered and practical. This course with Sahadev will also include some inspirational video footage from devotional films. Sahadev will share stories of Rama, Sita, Hanuman, Krishna, Radha, Uddhava, Sudama as well as life stories of saints Tukaram and Mirabai. Singing the Divine Names (Kirtan) will be another main focus.
