Camakapraśnaḥ 6 month course

Live classes on Thursdays

“Diving deeply into the Rudram brings īśvara into one’s life so that one comes out with namaḥ on one’s lips and īśvara in one’s heart.” – Swami Dayananda Saraswati

Rudram = Rudrapraśnaḥ + Camakapraśnaḥ

Exclusively open to students who have already studied Rudrapraśnaḥ (from any teacher, not necessarily with Veda Studies!!), this course which completes the “Rudram” is being offered as a 6 month study program (16 live classes on Thursdays) which will run from April 2023 – Sept 2023 (with August break from classes).

The Camakapraśnaḥ also consists of eleven sub-divisions called anuvākas. This hymn is generally recited after Rudrapraśnaḥ in which we ask Īśvara for very specific blessings.

Swami Dayananda Saraswati says “Suppose Bhagavān were to appear in front of you and ask what you want, you simply chant the Camakam!!”

Camakam therefore becomes a request to Īśvara in His own words, because it includes everything.

Course objectives:

At the end of this one year program, you will:

  • Learn the complete chanting of the Camakapraśnaḥ along with all Vedic phonetic details. This is 11 Anuvākā-s or paragraphs.
  • Learn the significance of this mantra in your life and an overall meaning of each section.
  • Get individual turns practising with the teacher on Zoom in the weekly live classes.
  • Ensure correct learning through sharing one recording a month with the teacher.
  • Continue practicing Rudrapraśnaḥ as part of this course and build up your internal strength, breath & prāṇa.

Course level: Advanced


  • Students should have studied Rudrapraśnaḥ from any teacher, not necessarily with Shantala. (If you have studied Rudrapraśnaḥ with a different teacher, please send us an email with an excerpt of your chanting before signing up).
  • Fluency with Veda chanting rules – anusvāra, visarga, doubling of conjunct, long syllable before conjunct etc. (all phonetic rules are always marked using the Veda Studies method, you are not expected to apply independently!).
  • Can maintain svara & correct easily when given feedback (most important part of the eligibility!).
  • Study is the equivalent of learning 1 Sūktam per month. (memorisation not expected).
  • 5 days per week self-practice is essential.
  • Please contact me if you wish to clarify your eligibility.

Vedic chanting rules are not taught in this course, but applied and practiced.
