What is Mantra Chikitsa?
Mantra Chikitsa is the ancient practice of healing through sound. Specific sounds, or mantras, were revealed by the rishis, the sages, for the benefit of healing both ourselves and those around us. The sages recommend various practices for healing, including niyama (observances), prayschitta
(atonement), upavasa (fasting), and mantra. Of these, mantra uses the vibrations of the sound to heal and cleanse the subtle energy channels in the body. The Vedas contain a wealth of knowledge that can be used to heal both the inner and the outer self. We hope to help share this Vedic knowledge so that people can use it for their own benefit and the benefit of others.
"The mantra therapy (beginners program) was a wonderful experience. I learnt a great deal from a young teacher who is rooted in Hindu tradition but is also knowledgeable about other faith traditions. I was deeply impressed by Panditji’s ability to connect different traditions and present the material in an accessible way to a diverse audience with humility and devotion. Many thanks to Dr. Shekhar and Pandit Neil for organizing this workshop!"

"The Mantra Chikitsa (Therapy / Yoga) Beginners Program has been such a beautiful learning experience for me. Dr. Shekhar Annambhotla and Pandit Neil Sahil Parmeswar provide such insight and knowledge to not only learning Mantra but the long history and culture that provides a thorough learning path to walk down. They go above and beyond answering questions and explaining this beautiful process of Sacred sound. I am very glad to have been a part of this training and I look forward to the next level".

"As a licensed massage therapist, and Ayurvedic practitioner, this course held my attention. The in-depth study of the Vedas introduced me to a whole new world of healing. I am excited to continue studying at the Intermediate level. Thank you so much for this opportunity! "

"Thank you for a truly life-expanding course. Listening to our Pandit's heart-healing voice and timeless wisdom always left me uplifted, inspired, and expanded. Panditji spent much time, thought, and energy in preparing each lesson, making for a rich and accessible learning environment (no matter our backgrounds). Everyone enjoyed his humor coupled with his depth to challenge us to consider broader perspectives of ourselves within the Divine. Pandit ji's personal stories and tales of Shiva/Shakti will forever remain in my heart, and I am forever changed. Looking forward to the next course series"!

"I strongly recommend the Mantra Chikitsa Beginners Program to anyone seeking simple yet powerful tools for profound spiritual transformation. For years, I've had a strong desire to deepen my understanding of the ancient Vedic science of sound. Yet I struggled to find teachers I resonated with, and was overwhelmed by the prospect of studying this vast body of knowledge on my own. In this course, Pandit Neil Sahil Parmeswar artfully taught us the fundamentals of the science of mantra through captivating storytelling, art, philosophy, chanting and reflections on many different spiritual lineages. In the 9 weeks since beginning this course and incorporating basic mantra practices into my daily routine, beautiful changes have begun to take root in my everyday life. I look forward to nurturing these seeds of change and going deeper into the truly enchanting wisdom of Mantra Chikitsa through the Intermediate Course. A heartfelt thank you to both Pandit Sahil and Dr. Shekhar for making this timeless mystical wisdom available to us in a way that feels accessible as well as exciting to explore."

"What do Yamas and Niyamas have to do with our lives? Alot! For effective mantra healing to work, this is the first place to start. And this is the beginning of the Introduction of Mantra Chikitsa. Pundit Neil Sahil Parmeswar walks you through each Sanskrit syllable and vowel supported by wonderful Vedic stories under the Banyan Zoom Tree. Once you experience the frequency and feel the vibration of the connection to the divine through simple mantra, life will be forever changed and more awakened. Excellent teaching of the first Module of Mantra Chikitsa. Highly recommended! Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti"
"Postscript: Dr. Shekhar is on target with each class, never missing a beat with emails, Zoom set-up, promotion, recording and delivery almost immediately after each 3-4 hour of classes. This Energizer Bunny has celestial batteries that never stop working. 'Can't' is not part of his vocabulary. With much gratitude for the beautiful work you do for Ayurveda, humanity and our planet. Om sam saravana bhavaya namah"
