The Power of Hindu Chants & Worship
Chants are a mainstay of Hinduism; often vocalised during worship. What are these chants, mantras and shlokas? This talk will give a description of different categories of chants, how they originated and how we can use them to better our worship and thereby strengthen our relationship with God. The presenter will also cover some common, yet powerful chants for daily prayer, describing their efficacy for a happy life. The latter part of the talk will focus on pooja or worship and how one can perform it daily in a simple manner at home.
