Terrific video of Guruji, Richard Freeman chanting Ashtanga’s opening prayer
Since our last post, rightly, pointed all of us in a bit of an inward direction (i.e. yoga isn’t just exercise), I thought this video — not new, but, as they say, new to me! — might be a nice continuation.
It’s Guruji and Richard Freeman chanting. At about the 2:20 mark they get to the Ashtanga opening chant. And then they follow with the general teacher/student may we all succeed in our studies chant (that’s my round-up of it).
It probably is the clearest I’ve heard Guruji captured chanting. And so that means it’s wonderful.
It’s got 11,000 views so maybe you’ve seen it. But then again, it only has 11,000 views, so you probably haven’t!
Somehow it makes me very impatient for the opening ceremony at the Confluence.
