Kirtan or devotional chanting elevates the mind, soothes the nerves and generates harmony. Sanskrit chants bring much joy and have a very positive effect on our physical and mental wellbeing.
The deities of the yogic tradition convey the deep essence of spirituality. In understanding the concept of a deity, it may be helpful to see him or her as an aspect of the one supreme essence, or energy, or consciousness. The grandeur of the Absolute is too vast for the mind to comprehend and the deity manifests it in a form that can be grasped. Each deity, complete within itself, represents an aspect of the whole.
