Time: 7:00 to 8:00 PM

Location: Blavatsky Bungalow upstairs, Adyar

Mantra Language: Sanskrit

In this workshop, you will learn a shanti mantra in Sanskrit Language. Shanti Mantras or “Peace Mantras” are Hindu prayers or sacred utterances usually chanted at the beginning or at the end of  a Vedic ceremony invoking peace. 

We will follow the sacred ancient Vedic methodology of teaching a chant, including mnemonic techniques. Hence there is no need of any stationery or  electronic gadgets for the sessions. 

Learning from listening and chanting will be encouraged.

At the end of the workshop, each one of the participants will be able to chant a mantra!


Jaishree Kannan is a member of the Theosophical Society and a long-time resident of the TS in Adyar. She is interested in music and has been practising chanting for many years. Of late, she has been combining music/chanting with Theosophical Teachings in the form of singing, and lectures to interested audiences.
