Kula 108 Names of Durga Pronunciation with Shelley 

We will continue our studies with Sanskrit pronunciation and focus in on refining our pronunciation of the 108 Names of Durga (Sri Durgastottatasatanamavalih). This class is for 2021 Nava Durga Sadhana participants only

Online on Zoom

Tuesday, April 20th

5:00-7:00 PM (Pacific Standard Time)


(Prerequisite: Kula Sanskrit Fundamentals with Shelley or another Sanskrit course that is applicable)


In this introductory course we will practice:

-Sanskrit Alphabet Song

-Pancha Puja pronunciation and practice

-108 Names of Durga


Just like yoga asana, it is not necessary to have perfect alignment to experience the benefits from the poses. With Sanskrit chanting we don't need to have perfect pronunciation, or even good pronunciation to experience the benefits of the vibrations. However, with refinement of our pronunciation, we can broaden our experience and expand our tool box of integrative methods.

Registrant Details:

This class will be hosted live-stream via Zoom Online Meetings. A recording of the session will be posted withon 24 hours into a DropBox folder. A link for the shared folder will be distributed. The audio and the video file will be available for download onto your DropBox account or your chosen device for use of your personal reference.
