Time: 7:00 p.m. CDT
We will meet every other Friday to recite the mantra together.
For those that would like to practice together the japa of the Ganesha Gayatri Mantra, we will meet every other Friday with Chris Young via Zoom. Chris will guide us in the recitation of 1 mala of the new mantra and then tell stories and tales from the life of Ganesha.
Gaṇeśa Gāyatrī Mantra Recitation by Swami Veda Bharati (108 times) can be heard here.
If you would like to learn proper recitation of the Gaṇeśa Gāyatrī Mantra and the Mother Gāyatrī prayer, Pandit Priyadarsana (Pierre Lefebvre) has shared word-by-word slow recitations, which can be heard here.
Chris Young was initiated into the Himalayan Yoga Tradition in 2005, but has been connected with The Tradition in some way since birth, with his parents being early members and faculty of The Meditation Center in Minneapolis. Chris occasionally leads Kirtan at the Meditation Center’s Thursday satsang, and helps with some IT aspects of the HYT Teacher Training Program. Chris finds the thread of yoga and meditation that has been taught through the Tradition and its teachers, and cultivated through practice, to always keep him returning to his heart’s path – the path of Yoga – and he is grateful to be a part of the local and global communities that are working to further the mission of The Himalayan Yoga Tradition. He is the father of two amazing boys, he enjoys singing and playing music, and is ready to help with your ocular asanas through eye-roll-inducing dad jokes.
