The Treasure of the Holy Name

Posted on 10/17/10 4 Comments

Mantra is a Sanskrit word. Sanskrit is the language of the ancient Vedic culture. Many anthropologists and linguists acknowledge that Sanskrit is the mother of all Indo-European languages. It is a language rich in words and particularly words which convey moods. And the mood Sanskrit succeeds in conveying most is the mood of love, that very experience that connects you with every other man, woman and child on the planet and every human that has ever or will ever tread this planet. The word Mantra is made up of two words Man and Tra and literally means to free the mind. And love is a feeling, an experience that takes us all beyond the mind, to a place of being that sates the very essence of who you are. The Vedic culture has given us a Mantra which gives us direct and immediate access to the most divine love, connecting our very soul with the Originator of all life and consciousness.

By chanting this mantra we can become immediately happy and satisfied. The Mantra can be explained referring to deep, esoteric philosophy and quoting authoritative texts demonstrating its veracity.

There is no better way of knowing the power of this mantra than tasting it, singing it and chanting it. Our retreats are an opportunity for you to participate with us in exploring the treasure of this Mantra. By investing a little time to cultivate the sublime nature of your soul, by spending a few days chanting with other like-minded people, you can experience a language beyond language, a mood of peace, calm and happiness which nourishes your very being.

    “India was the motherland of our race
    and Sanskrit the mother of Europe’s languages.
    India was the mother of our philosophy,
    of much of our mathematics, of the ideals embodied in
    christianity… of self government and democracy.
    In many ways, Mother India is the mother of us all.”
    Will Durant American Historian 1885-1981

      Thanks Venu Gopal prabhu, for the wonderful quote.

      India and its culture have definitely given us so much; the Bhagavad-gita is also said to be India’s gift to the world.

      Haribol,
      Raghava
