Sanskrit Belgium offers traditional chanting, studies and events designed for new and experienced Sanskrit enthusiasts and practitioners.
Sanskrit chanting is an empowering complement to the positive effects of your yoga practice and a great way to learn the correct sounds of this divine language. Chanting classes form the very basis of studies in Sanskrit Belgium, where classes are taught using "Shruti Parampara" (repeating after the teacher), integrating correct pronunciation practice with the authentic and sometimes strict rhythm of important texts such as Ganesha Mantras, Lalitha Sahasranama, Vishnu Sahasranama, Yoga Sutras, Shanti Mantras, Bhagavad Gita and Vedic texts.
Founded by Shantala Sriramaiah. Born and raised in Bangalore, India, Shantala studied Sanskrit in school, learning the script, grammar as well as important epics and scriptures. Sanskrit chanting has been part of her upbringing and she credits much of her knowledge to her mother who taught regular classes in their home for over 30 years. While continuing her own studies in Sanskrit & Vedanta, she aims to follow her family tradition and is keen to make this practice accessible to an international audience.
