Mantras Explained - How a Mantra Can Lead to Transformation

The musical note at which you sing and chant makes a difference, too!!! Sadhguru doesn't mention it in this excellent article (see link below), but we Do Practice this traditional Indian musicality every Monday at the Mantra Yoga sessions! Check the calendar page for schedule and contact info!

Sadhguru speaks about the science of mantras, and how a mantra can be a key to access deeper dimensions of existence. He also speaks about “Vairagya”, a set of five sacred chants, and how one can benefit from them.

2016 09 05 Ganesh Chaturthi Celebration

Today's playlist starts a little differently....with a recipe! This Is Ganesh's favorite food and you might like to whip up a batch to enjoy at the end of the celebration!

"Modaks have a special importance in the worship of the Hindu god Ganesha; modak is believed to be his favorite food, which begets him the moniker modakapriya (the one who likes modak) in Sanskrit. During the Ganesha worship ceremony, known in Maharashtra as Ganesha Chaturthi the puja always concludes with an offering of twenty-one modaks to the deity and as prasadam. Modaks made with rice flour shell are preferred for this purpose, however, wheat shell version are also used. Innovative recipes for modaks have also been created. These include banana nachni modak, motichoor modak [1] and chocolate modak."
