108 Hanuman Chalisa Yagna

hanuman

Come at whatever time works for you or for the entire 108 recitations of this sacred 40 verse hymn to Hanuman!

Hanuman is the Hindu Deity who symbolically represents selfless
service, as well as the breath, our constant companion and aid along the spiritual path. He is the son of the wind, the very essence of prana (vital energy) itself. Whenever we need increased power and vitality Hanuman is there for us, we need only remember him. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn the Chalisa by heart and to spend a special day with others in pure devotion!

Shangrila Yoga, 111 Mount Pleasant Ave. London, ON

Invoking Sarasvati, the goddess of creativity, music and poetry, we will create and share chants, poems and songs to, from and for our Mother World.

Next February’s release with Sounds True

Sounds True Releasing “Love Abounds” in  Feburary 2010!

Sounds True (which publishes audio works by musicians such as Krishna Das, Jai Uttal and Deva Premal and teachers such as Ekhart Tolle, Ram Das, Carolyn Myss, Greg Braden, Pema Chodron and Thich Nhat Hanh) has been a very inspiring part of my spiritual journey for many years now. I am thrilled to share with you that Sounds True and I are now officially signed on to present an album of original Devotional songs “for opening the heart” in Feb. 2010! I have much gratitude to producer Ben Leinbach for making the introductions and to Nancy Smith and all the folks at Sounds True for feeling the LOVE! More details to come as this exciting project evolves!
