Sanskrit Chanting and Yoga Nidra course concluded.

This morning we had the last Sunday class for Sanskrit Chanting students. It was a wonderful journey for me personally, as the path has opened up nicely before my eyes. Inspiration overflow is nicely experienced due to intense sadhana (practice) of a prolonged time while working through the numerous chants organising, systematising, editing and packing into packages and courses that can be run in the future in ShantiDwara

This 8 Sundays course was somewhat introductory giving the basics in Sanskrit pronunciation, getting acquainted with the essential shlokas, hymns and mantras. It was also sweetly spiced up with more esoteric practices of studying Matrikas, associated Vrittis, chakras-meridians in the body, and anga nyasa (superimposition of matrikas onto one’s own body temple).

Here is a list of sound tracks I uploaded for the students and anyone else interested to start somewhere.

Please, apologies for the quality of recording, singing and pronunciation. I am an eternal student, neither a Sanskrit scholar, nor a musician.

I fill honoured to share the limited knowledge in Mantra and am encouraging everyone to practice and do their own research, while polishing the skills over and over.

Recordings to refer for home practice (also find some traditional Hindu way of reciting on YT and sing along).

Text, wherever possible includes Devanagari, and the English transliteration is written with Diacritics (ā, ś, etc.):

Bihar School Of Yoga contribution to the world
“Contribution of the Satyananda Tradition to Yoga Sri Swamiji and the Satyananda tradition have made a major contribution to yoga and sannyasa. In order to systematize the practices of yoga it was necessary to create a sequential progression in the structure of yoga, and that is what Sri Swamiji has achieved. To Sri Swamiji goes the credit for the combinations of techniques and presentation of the pawanmuktasana series, parts one (anti-rheumatic), two (anti-gastric) and three (shakti bandhas). He also incorporated components of tantric nyasa into the yogic system in the form of yoga nidra. The sequence in which the practices of pranayama are taught today by the majority of yogic schools was

Psychospacial Meditation
Q: I have been mediating since 14 now I am 20 initially I felt quite calm any detached but slowly I became  irritated and depressed sort of. Should I stop meditation and yoga? A: The irritation/depression is likely to be frustration with your life. You might like to think about what you want out of your life and go after it systematically. A good place to start is a vision board and new experiences and training. Meditation and yoga just reveals what is there, it doesn't create the difficult emotions, it just allows them time/space to rise up and inform our lives. ——— If one focuses the Mind’s-Eye in a directional spacial orientation: 1.
