Sanskrit is an eternal, vibrant language of most ancient origins. Sanskrit is a collection of the subtle vibrations of the Cosmic Energies and is called the ‘Language of Gods’. Ancient Yogis perceived the subtle vibrations of the Universe in deep meditative states and organized them into Sanskrit language. Chanting and contemplating upon Sanskrit sounds is very energizing and helps in attuning oneself to Cosmic Consciousness. Sanskrit is Yoga in language-form. Practice of Sanskrit opens channels for the flow of subtle, vibrational energies thru the mind just as practice of Yoga opens channels for the flow of energy thru the body. Sanskrit is a powerful, transformational Yogic tool that calms the movements of thought, induces meditative state and gently carries the restless mind to Quiescence. Learning Sanskrit can be a fun, fulfilling experience and adds richness and authenticity to yogic lifestyle. ‘The Sacred Vibrations of Sanskrit – Sanskrit for beginners’ covers four aspects of this wonderful language:
- Basic spoken Sanskrit
- Accurate and authentic pronunciation of some energizing Mantras and chants
- Meaning and authentic pronunciation of popular Yoga poses
- Intro to Sanskrit alphabet, their experiential basis in the body of the practitioner
