The lotus which is one of the symbols associated with Nārāyaṇa represents the ability of the mind to reach perfection through Sādhana, inspite of being rooted in the material world. It is this transcendence of the ordinary that is the subtle purpose of Yoga.
Śrī T Krishnamacharya, while being a master of Yoga, legendary for his role in reviving and restoring Yoga to its previously acclaimed status, was at heart a fervent Bhakta, an unwavering devotee of Nārāyaṇa. His Vedantic anchoring deeply influenced his teachings, but he was nevertheless an open and broad-minded teacher who encouraged his students to find and seek their own personal Nārāyaṇa – in themselves.
Starting from the sacred day of Vaikuṇṭa Ekadaśi (the 11th day in the waxing lunar fortnight in the month of Mārgaśīrsa), the department of Healing Chants of KYM offers a yearlong immersion into a variety of chants addressed to Nārāyaṇa, in his many forms, also attempting to explore the underlying significance of these chants as powerful contributors to physiological, cognitive and emotional wellbeing.
Classes will be held on every Ekadaśi (dates given below) from 4 PM to 5.30 PM. The Programme will finish on Vaikuṇṭa Ekadaśi 2020 (December).
At intervals there will be an overview of the general meaning and purport of the chants taught with a brief meditative practice on the core ideas.
Chants to be covered:
- Nārāyaṇa Sūktam
- Viṣnu Sūktam
- Nārāyaṇa Kavacam
- Sudarśana Aśtakam
