Nina Rao learned traditional chants (bhajans) from her grandfather in a village in south India when she nine years old. The chants quietly stayed with her until she rediscovered chanting with Krishna Das in New York in 1996. For many years Nina has been Krishna Das' business manager and assistant, often touring with him playing cymbals and singing. In 2007, she recorded the track 'Nina Chalisa' on Krishna Das' CD "Flow of Grace " and in January 2013, she released her debut album, "Antarayaami - Knower of All Hearts. The chant practice in this program with the chanting in the call-and-response format of the Divine Names, from the Indian tradition.
Nina will lead a line of mantra and the group chants the same line back in response – so this is a group practice. We will also chant the powerful 4—verse prayer called the Hanuman Chalisa. As with many practices, we chant to slow-down our minds and open our hearts by repetition and coming back to the practice as we let the inevitable thoughts pass through our minds like clouds in the sky. Nina’s chants are available on her CD, Antarayaami-Knower of All Hearts.
