Shiva Yagya – Evening Chanting

India 002

Every evening during the yagya program the priests have come to chant Rudram for two hours. Last night, Seetharam arranged for young brahmin priests-in-training to come and join us.

Their voices were strong and their memorization of the lengthy Rudram was immaculate. The whole group repeated the Rudram mantra (about 6 pages of text) eleven times in about 2 1/2 hours non-stop. It was an impressive performance!

Their days start early, so by evening a few yawns are to be expected.
