An Ode to the "Formless"
Composed by Adi Shankaracharya over a thousand years ago, Nirvana Shatakam is one of the most well known Sanskrit chants. Legend goes that Adi Shankaracharya recited this on being asked “Who are you?”
“Nirvana” means formless and “shatakam” refers to the 6 verses of the composition, expressing how the true Self is beyond all definitions; it is “neither this nor that”.
Through this course, one can learn and reap the immense benefits of chanting this powerful mantra, which is also part of the daily routine at Isha Samskriti.
“A chant is not a cultural but an existential thing. It is about the sounds, not the meanings.”—Sadhguru
