Here are the words to the two chants we did on Saturday October 19 at Yoga Heart Studio:
Sat Narayan Wahe Guru Hari Narayan Sat Nam
Sat Narayan is True Sustainer,
Wahe Guru is indescribable Wisdom,
Hari Narayan is creative sustenance
Sat Nam is True Identity.
This mantra is chanted to create inner peace so one can project outer peace, happiness and good fortune. Narayan is the aspect of Infinity that relates to the water element. This mantra helps you “go with the flow” and takes you beyond the world to the experience of Infinity.
Sita is the perfect wife. Her absolute commitment to her husband Ram(a) is an allegory for the devotee’s all-encompassing love for God. Ram(a) is God pictured as the perfect king and husband. The Indian epic “Ramayana” chronicles his adventures. His passionate love for Sita, his wife, is an allegory for God’s love for each human soul. From Kirtan!
