With the beginning of a new presidential term and an impregnating sense of hope for the future, we at the Bhakti Academy would like to recognize the historical precedence of mantra meditation as a practical means of effecting change in global consciousness.  Think globally, chant locally.

Mohandas Gandhi, who served as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s most influential mentor, also recognized the power of mantra.  The understanding is that sustainable change must begin in the consciousness and hearts of the individuals within every community.  By chanting, we can purify our own hearts and minds and together become liberated from the actions of anger, greed, and selfishness.  But until this happens, we will be victims of our own false ego and self-inflicted violence.

At the Bhakti Academy, students take classes in mantra meditation, studying its historical infuence and importance in today’s world, along with learning different styles and techniques of chanting.  Mantra meditation is limited neither by time, place, nor circumstance, and can be softly whispered or sung aloud, practiced alone or together in a group.  If you are interested in learning how to chant for change, please visit us at Krishna House for one of our morning or evening classes.
