A special night of chanting, music, spiritual joy and yogic awareness inspired by the music of Paramahansa Yogananda will be led by the Wild Moon Bhaktas and Rev. Alan Pritz this month in St. Paul.
“A Night of Sacred Chants by Yogananda” will take place from 7:30-9:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 12, at Weyerhaeuser Chapel at Macalester College, 1604 Grand Ave. A suggested donation at the door is $10-$15 for adults and $5 for students.
Yogananda, the famed author of Autobiography of a Yogi, first introduced Indian-inspired chanting to Western audiences in the 1920s. He left a rich legacy of chants in English, both original compositions and translations of traditional Indian chants. Yogananda said, “Music is a divine art, to be used not only for pleasure but as a path to God-Realization. Vibrations resulting from devotional singing lead to attunement with the Cosmic Vibration or the Word.”
On this night nothing but Yogananda chants and musical adaptations of his sacred inspirations will played. Join us with two performers who have introduced Yogananda’s music to a new generation of Americans. No experience necessary.
