Mantras for Health & Well-Being

Learn 2 simple and beautiful mantras from the Yajur Veda invoking divine energies to nourish and sustain our health. In learning these mantras, we plant the seed to a healthy lifestyle and at the same time surrender to the knowledge that grace is an important element of staying healthy or recovering from illness. This course is great for beginners!

Āyrmantraḥ : From the Taittirīya Āraṇyaka, this mantra asks the Divine to nourish, support and strengthen the different functions and organs of the human body while praying for a long, holistic and spiritually blessed life.

Laghunyāsaḥ : An extract from the Taittīrīya Brāhmaṇa, this mantra is a prayer to nature – the Sun, Wind, Fire, Moon, Space, Water, Earth etc to nourish and support the different functions and organs of our body. On a deeper level, if we know the meaning of this chant and meditate on it, then our notion of ourselves and others changes profoundly as we start to see ourselves as representing totality.

Step-by-step audio, video and text lessons taking you through the pronunciation, phonetic rules, meaning and practice for complete study. Each section has a discussion area for you to ask a question and interact with the instructor.

I hope you enjoy your study here!

How Does This Course Work

Step by step lessons to learn these two mantras with audio, video and text resources to guide your learning, ensuring all transmission normally done in a live class is available within the course content.

The audio recordings are available in 3 formats:

1) Practice with Shantala – here you can repeat with your instructor, each section has been recited 3 times so you can listen once and repeat along with the other 2 times. Just as you would in a regular class!
2) Practice with the group – the live class recordings are available here as well if you prefer to feel part of a group.
3) Practice with Guruji Sreenivasan – recordings of my own practice with my Guruji are made available here for a final practice.

The Vedic phonetics to follow are carefully explained with much detail in the videos. Along with the accompanying text nicely colour coded and marked for you (stress words, words to grip, conjunctions, etc), you will have all the resources for study!
