One should perceive the inner Self through the gift of the Guru’s grace
By this path of the Guru knowledge of one’s Self arises
Around Baba Muktananda, Robert’s Guru, the Guru Gita was chanted each morning at daybreak. The tradition continues at Yogareal every week when we come together and chant the Guru Gita.
Sri Guru Gita (a scriptural chant) is a dialogue between Shiva and his beloved Parvati. Where Parvati is the first in existence to enquire as to how she can unite with the ultimate reality. In response, Shiva lovingly recites the Guru Gita to her:
“O Goddess, you are My very Self. Out of love for you, I will tell you this. No one has ever asked this question before, which is a boon to all mankind.
An important practice, chanting is the main technique of Bhakti Yoga, which is one of the four main styles of yoga. Through chanting, the mind becomes one-pointed, the heart and throat open and the breath lengthens. You are supported sitting for a lengthy time with a lovely melody, which in turn is one of the simplest ways to open the hips. It is a challenging and expansive process, essential for a holistic undertaking of yoga. For students who value the feeling of being connected with the flow of energy and love, this is the ultimate offering.
Guru Gita is currently on hold.
In the meantime, join us at the next Chant.
