Chanting the Mahesvarasutrani

10 min - Practice


Anuradha introduces us to the Mahesvarasutrani (Sutra of Shiva). The legend goes that when Shiva played his damaru (drum), this is the combination of sounds that Panini heard. From these fourteen verses, Panini went on to develop the code (3,959 rules) that formed the Astadhyayi (Eight Chapters) of foundational text in Sanskrit grammar. Anuradha chants the sutra several times, giving us a chance to both soak in the sounds as well as follow along. Often the chanting of these sounds results in a spontaneous harmony in the body.

This is an absolutely amazing video production, in all aspects! However, in this particular video picture and sound are not in synchronicity at 06:05 minutes (for about 35 seconds) ..

Just love the way each lesson is done. I had that particular feeling when repeating the sounds of each letters that they move in my body... or body moves as it hear the sound... just loved it !
Dear Locana, Great that you are naturally tuning in to the power of the sounds of Sanskrit. The more you say them, the more subtly the sounds will harmonise your vibrations of your inner being! Enjoy the experience :)
