Swami Sivananda taught that repeating any mantra or name of the Lord is the easiest and surest way to reach God-realization. Japa Yoga can be practiced at any time, turning ordinary moments into opportunities to purify the mind. Through practice, it becomes an ongoing part of your life that results in health, wealth, and strength. Using teachings from Swami Sivananda, you will learn about mantra initiation, how to choose your own personal mantra, and how to use a japa mala.
Swami Hridyananda, a direct disciple of Swami Vishnudevananda, is senior staff of the Yoga Retreat and has spent over 30 years teaching yoga and Sivananda Yoga Teacher Training Courses, and supporting individuals on this transformative journey.
