msf_largeDevaguru Bṛhaspati Center announces a new program on Mantra Śāstra titled “Mantra Śāstra Foundation” to be taught by Pt. Sanjay Rath.


The Mantra Foundation program is to be taught in the tradition of Puri, India and includes spiritual instructions to develop the mind in order to grasp the entire subject. The student is to develop a strong foundation of mantra śāstra which includes a functional knowledge of Sanskrit alphabets and words that form the root sounds of mantras. The program includes five courses.

  1. Bāla Jyotiṣa aims at imparting the rudimentary knowledge of vedic astrology and the Hindu calendar, in addition to the devatā associated
  2. Akṣara includes the Sanskrit syllables, their three divisions into groups of 16, 25 and 9 syllables and the extra 3 that add to the last nine to form the 52 syllables. Personification of the Sanskrit syllables as śaktī and the 52 śaktī pīṭha. Devanāgarī akṣara and the deva nakṣatra chakra, deva rāśi chakra etc. are included.
  3. Mantra pañcāṅga is the fundamental basis of every mantra without which mantra practise is akin to walking in the darkness (tamas)
  4. Mantra Theory teaches the application of mantra for various purposes and the associated colours, posture, mudrā etc.
  5. In Mantra sādhanā we learn about practises associated with penance, daily ritual practise, protection of dwelling and temple, various rules and regulations meant to protect and guide in the sādhanā.

  • Mantra Śāstra Foundation program shall start on Nandana Magha pūrṇimā, (25 February, 2013) and shall include weekly online lessons.
  • Online workshop shall be held on the first Saturday of every third month where the lessons shall be applied and various case studies, illustrations shall be given.
