Science of Identity Foundation Releases Sunrise Japa and Kirtan Meditation Video Series
AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Science of Identity Foundation is excited to announce the release of a deeply relaxing video series featuring Japa and Kirtan meditation techniques. The Sunrise Japa and Kirtan Meditation video series combine chanting with mellow guitar rhythms set against the backdrop of a peaceful tropical beach. The video series is live on YouTube, allowing viewers to learn and practice these timeless techniques from the comfort of their own homes.
The first technique is called japa yoga and relies on the use of mala beads. Sometimes worn as a piece of jewelry, these beads are useful in helping engage the sense of touch in one's meditation practice. The process of chanting in japa yoga is to hold one bead while you repeat the entire mantra. As one is touching that bead, they should say the mantra loud enough to hear it them self. It is important to pronounce each syllable clearly. After one chant the whole mantra, one goes go to the next bead and repeat the mantra again, moving through all of the beads. Japa yoga is an individual practice, usually done alone.
The second technique is a powerful group practice called Kirtan. Kirtan is a form of yoga meditation based on the hearing and repeating of sacred mantras, and is often accompanied by musical instruments. It differs from the solitary practice of japa because it is performed in a group setting. Regularly practicing kirtan can help to awaken and cultivate a person's inner wisdom and spiritual love.
As people seek ways to optimize their spiritual well-being, meditation can be a powerful tool to calm the nervous system and relieve anxiety. It can be practiced at home or outdoors, alone or in a group. It is now available to everyone, regardless of demographics. Both meditation techniques shown in this video will engage the senses to help bring more focus to the practice while helping to clear the mind of anxieties, worries, and misunderstandings.
