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)


Blogpaper Feature: How to Survive your First Yoga Class

Thanks to the talented people behind Blogpaper.dk Omshanti.dk looks like a fashion magazine today. The paper featured my post on how to survive your first yoga class. It's Danish, but I might translate it and stick it up later. Have a look at the pretty pictures and the whole thing (where you can view it full screen and actually read the text) at the end of the post. What do you think?
Thanks Tribe People for being in the pictures. I hope you like.
