Please join me as we uncover the magic, practice and power of the Hanuman Chalisa.

– Four Week Course
– Integrated Practice
– In Depth Study
– Philosophy and Music

This is for the student and spiritual aspirant who looks to go deeper into their personal bhakti yoga practice by incorporating the chanting of the Hanuman Chalisa into their daily practice.

Over the course of four weeks we will break down the Hanuman Chalisa by focussing on 10 verses per week – 40 in total plus the intro and outro (Doha)

We will learn and study the chant over one melody – the “Good Ol’ Chalisa by Krishna Das” (as heard on Live on Earth) in order to give every student an accessible melody that can actually be learned and played, even by a beginer musician.

In addition we will discuss the philosophy and meaning of this magical Hindi chant written by Tulsi Das and why it’s relevant even today.

What’s suggested:
– bring a harmonium (not mandatory)
– a basic understanding of kirtan
– a basic understanding of the Hanuman Chalisa
– attending all four classes

What’s provided:
– transliteration
– chord charts
– download for KDs “Good Ol’ Chalisa”
– philosophy and discourse
– one on one instruction

People don’t know – every line of the Hanuman Chalisa is maha-mantra – Neem Karoli Baba
