Bhakti Mantra Chanting & Singing Guided Meditation with Nikhil

The practice of mantra chanting deepens the concentration and devotion, calms the mind and improves the awareness. It is a rhythmical repetition of a song, prayer, word or sound. It is one of the most ancient spiritual practices and according to the Indian yoga tradition, sound is healing and sacred. In addition, Bhakti yoga is a powerful devotional practice as it is believed that chanting a name of a deity helps one to get in communion with the divine. Chanting opens the heart; stills, focuses and calms the mind; and offers the benefits of a yoga class or meditation, without the struggle or the striving to concentrate.
