Good afternoon, everyone. Welcome. So today we're going to start with a song to Krishna. And as we already encountered, he's the teacher in the Gita. And Krishna literally as a noun means black and as a verb, it's that which attracts. So we're going to sing the Maha mantra. The words for this are Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare, Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare. And this is known as the Maha, meaning the great mantra. And we could do probably a whole course on the Maha mantra and all its scope of its meaning. But today we're kind of thinking about Krishna as the teacher. So there's the idea that Krishna being the dark one and the one who attracts, he's like the alluring, quality of that knowledge that resides in the unknown spaces of the K of our heart. So it's dark, but somehow we connected to it. Hari, Hari is the name of Vishnu or Krishna and Hara of Shiva. And it's basically the energy that removes. Krishna, the energy that attracts and then Rama, of course we can take Rama as relating to the incarnation of Vishnu called Rama or Ramachandra. But in this instance today, we're just going to think of it, Rama is related literally to the verb which means to enjoy, to be joyful. So Hari Krishna and Harirama, we invoke that energy that removes the blockages to our being in that state of integration, which happens when we heed the call that comes from that place of deep intuitive knowing inside. And when we do that, what happens? It's kind of self-validating here. Sometimes it's challenging to listen to the call of the heart, but when we do, we feel that Ram, that quality of enjoyment. So it's the idea that when we start to tune in, we can hear more readily the guidance of the heart wisdom. And as we follow it, it removes those obstacles or those blocks that would impede us enjoying that all the time. And as that happens, it can be challenging. When we take those steps, it's its own reward. So basically singing to the energy of yoga that keeps drawing us on and keeps inspiring us even as the challenges keep coming. So we'll sing this to begin today. So this one, I think, once you've heard it one time, we can just all sing together. And I might change the melody a little bit, but I think it'll still flow quite easily. We can all kind of work as one, more or less.
