Vedic Mantras and Rituals

plus accommodations (see below for prices)







A "Mantra" is a mystical spiritual energy encased in a sound structure. At its simplest, the word Om serves as a mantra. In more sophisticated forms, they are melodic phrases with spiritual rendition such as human longing for truth, reality, light, immortality, peace, love, knowledge and action.  Mantras, as sacred sounds, are known to affect our vibratory being and consciousness as the word mantra itself means both protection and instrument.   

In a translation of the Yoga aphorisms of Patanjali, it is noted that the “repetition of sacred words or mantras is…an invaluable aid to spiritual progress.” 

The experience of mantra and chanting are best when accompanied by ritual.  Ritual, in the very way that it is performed --the same time each day, also mirrors the rhythmic quality of mantra or the universe’s ebbs and flows.  Without sound encompassed in ritual that it is difficult to release the accumulation of psychic toxicity in our spiritual system.
