The Teaching Team

This course is presented by a team of experienced Bhaktas (bhakti-yoga practitioners) who have worked together to develop this course and present it.

Along with developing the content, these teachers and other members of our ChantNow.com community participate in this course as resources for answering questions and giving practical guidance through the course forum and discussion group. There is also a weekly interactive webinar for course participants.

Japa Meditation Kit

The course also requires students to have a japa kit (a set of chanting beads, holding bag and counting beads). After registering for the course, make sure to click on the link provided to order your kit. If you already have a set of beads or can obtain them locally then you can use these.

Course Donation

There is no charge to enroll in the course. Instead, after completing the course we ask students to donate according to their means and inspiration. Chantnow.com is supported by these donations and the dedicated service of volunteers in our community. To support the development of this and other courses, we ask for a donation from students.


To take this course you should have taken the 7 Day Chanting Workshop, or otherwise started with your chanting practice. If you are completely new to mantra meditation we recommend you take the 7 Day Chanting Workshop first.
