I am thrilled to offer you this 8 class course on the Hanuman Chalisa led by my beloved music teacher Ranjini Koushik from Mysore, India. 

Ranjini has over 30 years of experience in the world of Carnatic Music and has been teaching students at various levels from around the world. She came from four generations of scholars and grew up with her sisters learning classical music and chanting. 

She is proficient in teaching Carnatic Classical, Bhakti Shlokas, Bhajans and Nama Sankeertanas. The Hanuman Chalisa ~  40 stanzas in praise of Hanuman. An expression of his love through self-service. 

Hanuman is known as Rama’s great devotee and one of the central characters in the well known epic, the Ramayana. He is the embodiment of strength, courage, wisdom, faith, surrender, and devotion and that whoever chants to him will carry these traits. 

Chanting of Hanuman Chalisa regularly purifies both the body and mind, nurtures inner strength and courage, wards of negativity and arguments, promotes harmony and is incredibly uplifting.

Chanting has proven to create many incredible benefits in both our physiological and psychological state and has long been combined with yogic practices.

These mantras (vedic hymns) carry specific vibrations, which, when practiced in a very precise manner improve physical, mental and emotional health while bringing us into the present moment.

During these 4 weeks we will be covering…

An Overview and History
Chanting and it’s Benefits
Rules of Sanskrit Pronunciation
Understanding Roman transliteration of Devanagari
Chanting as a Pranayama
Shanti Mantras or “Peace Mantras
Stotras, Mantras, and Japa. What and why?
Daily Stotras
Personal feedback for chants that we study weekly
and of course, we will chant many shlokas together

By the end of the four weeks, you should have a good foundation for your personal practice.

We will chant for the well being of each other, our earth, and to the divine.

To share chanting is to share an experience of silence through listening, a process of healing, and a link with nature, the deeper self, and the divine. ~ T K V Desikachar

The classes will be 65 USD for all 8 classes. (I have tried to make the price as accessible to everyone as possible).
