Srī Sūktam – Beauty, harmony & abundance
November 10, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm€135
A course of 6 classes to learn the famous Śrī Sūktam, a mantra from the Veda-s recited to welcome Śrī or Lakṣmī, all that is beautiful, harmonious, blissful and nourishing into our lives. We plan this course just in time for Diwali, the festival of light, when goddess Lakṣmī is traditionally worshipped.
“Lakṣmī throws the spell of the intoxicating sweetness of the divine; to be close to her is a profound happiness and to feel her within the heart is to make existence a rapture and a marvel; grace and charm and tenderness flow out from her like light from the sun and wherever she fixes her wonderful gaze or lets fall the loveliness of her smile, the soul is seized and made captive and plunged into the depths of an unfathomable bliss.” – Sri Aurobindo
At the end of 6 classes, you will:
- Learn the complete Śrī Sūktam along with all Vedic phonetic details.
- Understand the meaning of each mantra along with some important key words useful for personal reflection and growth.
- Learn the significance of wealth in the Vedas.
- Practice chanting with the teacher on Zoom at least once (more if you wish). All students will get a turn practising with the teacher.
