I seek not science, not religion, not Theosophy, but Veda—the truth about Brahman, not only about His essentiality, but about His manifestation, not a lamp on the way to the forest, but a light and a guide to joy and action in the world, the truth which is beyond opinion, the knowledge which all thought strives...
Sri Aurobindo (Essays Divine and Human)
On the occasion of the Celebration of 150th Birth Anniversary of Sri Aurobindo
& Commemoration of Seventy-fifth Year of India's Independence, AuroBharati Sri Aurobindo Society presents ‘Vedic Chanting: Intangible Cultural Heritage, Tradition and Continuity’ on 20th October, 2023 at Sri Aurobindo Society, 11, St. Martin Street, Puducherry.
About the workshop:
Objective of this workshop is to focus on Vedic Chanting as Intangible Cultural Heritage and one of the world’s oldest surviving cultural traditions. The suktas of the Vedas were traditionally chanted during sacred rituals and daily in Vedic communities. Chanting of the sacred mantras is categorized by a sound, word or phrase that enhances the consciousness through rhythmic patterns.
Mantras were visualized by the sages and seers through deep meditation as the eternal spirit of the nature. Chanting of the mantras can be used to evoke different states of consciousness to harness the power of intentions and a deeper state of awareness. When we chant the mantras with utmost devotion, we realize powerful vibrations within the body and mind. This workshop aims to bring the participants in contact with many beautiful aspects of Vedic chanting including its different aspects in the light of Sri Aurobindo.
Who can apply?
This workshop is aimed at those aspirants who want to understand and experience Vedic chanting and learn to chant simple Vedic Mantras including meaning and significance of each mantra.
