Mantra Chanting High

Last night the city was buzzing with people because of Kulturnatten (Culture Night). Everybody in Copenhagen seemed to be out. I went to a chanting session at Hamsa Yoga and it was amazing. Neela Bindu played ancient Sanskrit mantras and about 30 yogis joined in with beautiful voices and amazing energy. We started out softly, but very soon the band had us clapping and singing at the top of our lungs lifting the energy higher and higher. The complete silence between the mantras was buzzing with prana and I caught myself grinning like a fool. The grin pretty much stayed on my face all night. And this morning I’m still humming:

Om Namah Shivaya Gurave
(I offer myself to the one true teacher within and without)

Saccidananda Murtaye
(In the forms of reality, consciousness and bliss)

Nisprapancaya Shantaya
(Ever present and full of peace)

Niralambaya Tejase
(Independent being, the vital essence of illumination)
