Bring your voices and spend an enchanted afternoon with us filling our hearts with much needed love, warmth and light of sacred chant. Do not remain in the darkness - come to the light!
We will be celebrating the joy and power of chanting the Maha-Mantra. The Maha-mantra, or the great mantra for deliverance is the most powerful mantra for this age (according to Kali Santarana Upanisad) because by chanting it just once with devotion, the heart and mind become uplifted and purified.

More about mantras
The power of spiritual sound has been accessed by various traditions, throughout history and throughout the world. Since time immemorial in various traditions of the world people used to come together and make sacred music and sound - sometimes to reconnect with each other, to celebrate, to grieve or to gain spiritual strength individually and collectively.
According to the yoga literature - the condition of the world is very much dependent on the sound vibrations which are permeating the atmosphere. There is no greater healer and there is no greater destroyer. This literature explains that for this age the most effective sound vibrations are spiritual sound vibrations.
There are different levels and different varieties of divine sound vibrations. Through their chanting and practices, different traditions can help us tune into a certain aspect of the divine. In the Bhakti tradition, the mantras are designed to tune into that aspect of divine grace that reawakens the love in our hearts.
Mantra means that which liberates and cleanses the mind. The mind is like a mirror - if the mirror is dirty, you cannot see yourself in it. When the mind is covered with the dust of so many misconceptions, fear, selfishness, arrogance and greed, we identify ourselves only as that. When the mind is cleaned through the mantra, the divine qualities of the self, which culminate in divine love, are reflected through the mind. This effect can be perceived in all that we do and experience in this world. Mantra is so simple, but so powerful.
