Frequently asked Questions
Is this an initiation to the Vedic ritual practiced by Hindus?
No, this is the core part of the elaborate Vedic ritual called Sandhyāvandanam. This core practice is open to all practitioners without an initiation ceremony. Therefore, this workshop does not cover the practice of Nyāsa.
If I want to practice this everyday, what is the time commitment?
This practice can be completed anywhere from 20 minutes to 40 minutes or longer, depending on how you progress your japa. The 20 minute practice is a recommended first step for beginners.
Can I have face to face interation with Instructor
How long will I have access to this material?
