I am so blessed to have a meditation teacher who is very inspiring and down to earth.


Rajkumari Chauhan, she was my meditation teacher during my yoga teacher training in India.


Funny Moments with her, I slept 2 times in her class! I was so tired I guess. :))

Below are the songs that helped me enjoy the meditation class during my YTTC,  here are the songs in Sanskrit and English translations:

Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya | I bow to Lord Vasudeva (en.wikipedia.org)

Shamba Mahadeva Chandrachooda | O Great God of Goodness, who wears the moon as an ornament, O beneficent Lord, O eternal Lord Shiva
and Divine Mother, You are Lord of Mount Kailasa and You bring down the River of Grace. Protect me,
Mother Parvati (Shiva\’s consort) with God\’s Name (www.sathya.org.uk)

Sri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram | May the Lord as Light and Virtue that dwells in my heart be victorious overall obstacles and difficulty. May the positive and transforming vision of the Divine in my heart lead to the fulfillment of divine will. (www.thegratefulyogi.com

Below are the audio records from the actual meditation class.

Practicing Meditation is very fulfilling specially if you have a good teacher. Namaste to all.
