The Hymn to the Sun is the oldest and most auspicious of mantras from the east which has also profoundly influenced the West. When sounded sincerely, it erases the ordinary negative tendencies of the mind and awakens the vital energies which lead to liberation, health and happiness. An introduction to the history and meaning of the mantra will be followed by group sounding for a practical exploration of its effects. “The person who recites the Gayatri cannot fall a prey to illness.” Gandi.
