Welcome to Gaura Bhakti Ras, the yoga of divine love. Our divine chants from India, kirtan-bhakti ras and mantra meditation, is manifesting in Asia, Europe, North, Central and South American countries. We present a seven day seminar, a three day course and a one day workshop, that is bestowed in these countries in yoga centers, universities, cultural centers and private homes.
The main focus of these teachings is to share with all the importance of discovering our real internal being. To offer an understanding of the importance of awakening our dormant spiritual consciousness, by the practice of mantra meditation and kirtan (divine chants in Sanskrit and Bengali). This is the main objective of these seminars and workshops.
There are many different types of meditations and goals within these meditations. Some people meditate in the divine light and want to become that light. Others meditate in voidness and want to become void and empty; while others want to be God, merging and becoming one with Him, with the His effulgent aspect of God.
This bhakti yoga tradition, is actually eternal, and is the most ancient spiritual practice on earth, practiced hundreds and thousands of years ago by the mystic sages of India. By this process, the sages teach us how to fill the soul with divine love, through mantra meditation and kirtan (reciting sacred chants in Sanskrit). In this way one can attain the highest satisfaction that the self can ever attain.
By practicing the chanting of mantras and bhakti, transcendental devotion, one´s eternal spiritual form is awakened and our eternal relationship becomes manifest and clearly visible in the mirror of our heart. Therefore, in this human form of life, the highest occupation for all humanity, to fully satisfy the soul, is bhakti, transcendental devotion, to the Supreme Transcendental Being.
In this iron age of Kali, the prescribed spiritual process for humanity is chanting the transcendental names, forms, qualities, pastimes and songs that glorify the Supreme Personality of God. Therefore, singing these sacred holy names, chants and mantras, is considered the most powerful form of meditation and spiritual practice in present times. By constantly reciting this transcendental sound vibration, one will connect with the Infinite Being, and realize the effulgent love of God.
