This workshop will explore the history and significance of these two chants. Sharing correct pronunciation, its importance as well as a clear translation bringing deeper meanings behind these sacred words.

The ancient practice of chanting works at a subconscious level and can be used to purify mental and physical blockages within the body.

From a scientific aspect it has been said that chanting holds several calming, therapeutic, psychological, and spiritual benefits.
