To chant, is to sing a prayer. By using ancient scriptures and verses, we chant for happiness, prosperity and peace. When we pronounce the Tibetan, Hawaiian or Sanskrit words with a deliberate tone of voice, we also tune into the vibration they hold by forming the words in our mouths with a special technique, that raises or calms our own energy for more clarity and compassion in our hearts, and by that attract what we want in life within the highest good of all. We can also chant for protection.
At Telluselle Living Center we practice respect. We are open to all beliefs, but choose to use Buddhist mantras, such as the Nam Myo Reng Kyo and Mahakala and a couple of Hawaiian meles, chosen by our Kumu that cultivates Aloha. We can also chant the yogic mantra Gayatri to invoke Divine light for all humanity, as well as host Catholic groups that may want to pray the Rosary here.
All these practices are shared, and led, thru direct lineage with a master, by one of our instructors, after a short meditation. Sometimes we might sing the different ones together, in a practice called Kirtan.
