Gayatri Mantra: A Blessing for Enlightenment

Gayatri Mantra: A Blessing for Enlightenment with Swamini Sri Lalitambika Devi

Saturday, September 28 • 2:00–3:30 p.m.

The Gayatri mantra is one of the most beloved mantras in the world. We may open our morning practice with this verse, chant a full round of 108 on the mala, or imagine the sun rising within, but what do we really know of the mantra? In this illuminating workshop, we will explore the meaning, symbolism, and daily uses of this prayer for awakening—a vibration that is truly beyond knowing. Our time together includes a gentle Yoga warm-up, storytelling, and, of course, the experience of chanting together.
