Chanting was recommended by our late teacher, K Pattabhi Jois, and is regularly taught at his school in Mysore. The practice of chanting calms and quiets the mind and develops concentration. Chanting is also a way to learn about the yoga tradition. The Shri Guru Gita is from the Skanda Purana, a ancient text said to have been authored by the great Rishi Vyasa. It describes the meaning of the guru-disciple relationship.
The version used by the chanting group is from The Nectar of Chanting book. (order online http://siddhayogabookstore.org/The-Nectar-of-Chanting.aspx).
