The Goddess Lakshmi: Infinite Creativity and Spiritual Prosperity
The fall season in the Hindu calendar celebrates two very important festivals dedicated to the Goddess, one of which is Deepavali, the festival of lights, that falls in mid-October. During Deepavali, the illustriousness of Sri, or the Goddess Lakshmi, is celebrated and worshipped.
This two-hour class will be In honor of the fall Goddess season, and we will focus on chanting mantras that are energy manifestations of the Goddess. During the first hour, we will chant the mantras associated with the Divine Mothers that manifest as sound vibrations on each of the petals of the seven chakras. During the second hour, we will chant the Lakshmi Ashtakam, eight verses in praise of the Goddess Lakshmi. These eight verses can be chanted daily as a devotional practice, and they invoke Sri Lakshmi as the basis of all wealth, abundance, beauty, fearlessness, essence of mantras, and the One who is born of Yoga.
The class will include chanting, pranayama, and stories about Sri Lakshmi from the ancient Hindu texts.
