Mantras for Inner Peace: Exploring the Shanti Mantras with Alpa and Nya (Live on Zoom) - August 23rd, 2:30 to 5:30 pm PDT
Shanti Mantras are generally recited at the beginning and end of yoga classes. They are tools to calm the mind of the reciter, as well as, bring peace to the environment and remove obstacles. Each mantra begins with Om and ends with three repetitions of the word Shanti. These mantras are universal in nature because no specific deity is invoked.
