Course Overview

Sacred Sounds

Sanskrit Mantras, Peace Prayers, Vedic Hymns & Japa

with Monica Gauci

This is an educational and experiential workshop. We will start with a Vedic Blessing of Space and then move into a approx. 45 minute theory section. Here we will study the energetics and phonetics of chanting Sanskrit; how to use a mala and the significance of 108 repetitions; the meaning of the sacred syllable OM; the power of śakti bija mantras and choosing an Iṣṭa Devatā.

Together we will chant peace mantras, Vedic hymns, Sanskrit prayers, and Japas as we experience the vibrational power of Sanskrit in uplifting our consciousness and healing our lives.

Study Materials

You will be supplied with a PDF of the mantras in romanised Sanskrit with notations.

Please have a hard copy read to mark the grammatical changes that will apply.

After the workshop you will receive a bonus sound file of the mantras we have learnt to enable you to continue to practice.

If you have a mala please have it handy.
