On April, 1, 1997, at the conclusion of the Siddha Yoga Meditation Tour to Australia, Gurumayi said:
“In the future, there will be Chanting Tours.… The focus will be on chanting.… People will remember the goal: the inner attainment, the inner transformation, creating a true paradise in this very world.”
It is our great delight to announce that the Siddha Yoga Chanting Tour: Australia 2014 will commence next month, in March. The Siddha Yoga Chanting Tour: Australia 2014, held by the SYDA Foundation, is in fulfillment of Gurumayi’s promise to the Siddha Yogis in Australia in 1997.
The Chanting Tour will be a great opportunity for Siddha Yogis and new seekers to study, practice, assimilate, and implement the Siddha Yoga practice of chanting. Siddha Yoga chanting is chaitanya, imbued with the Guru’s grace; the Chanting Tour will be a vehicle for that grace.
At Gurumayi’s invitation, Siddha Yoga music teacher and conductor Carlos del Cueto will travel to Siddha Yoga Ashrams, meditation centers, and chanting and meditation groups in Australia to hold teaching and learning events focused on the practice of chanting. Siddha Yoga teachings on chanting and the music refinements that Gurumayi has taught over the past fifteen years will be shared both locally and with the global Siddha Yoga sangham.
Yes, wherever you may be around the world, you will have the opportunity to participate in the Chanting Tour via postings on the Siddha Yoga path website and a live audio stream. This will be an event on a global scale as Gurumayi’s teachings on chanting reverberate in the hearts of all who participate.
The Siddha Yoga Chanting Tour: Australia 2014 will begin on March 22, 2014, in Melbourne—in just six weeks! It will culminate with the grand finale in Sydney on April 19.
