Oh God Beautiful!

August 13, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - August 15, 2021 @ 11:00 am

Discover the Divine Path of Beauty

August 13-15   2021

The great Indian Saint Paramhansa Yogananda (Author of Autobiography of a Yogi) chanted ‘Oh God Beautiful’ at Carnegie Hall in April of 1926. Warned before he went onstage that the Americans would not appreciate very much of this Indian Kirtan, the audience was enraptured for over two hours!   The words of the chant reveal that the Divine presence is indeed found in all things beautiful.  

In this unique course, you’ll learn about the importance of beauty on the spiritual path and how beauty itself is a means of awakening. 

Beauty awakens higher consciousness. By training our perception we can perceive the presence of Spirit in all things. In the mountains and forests, in the ardor of love and even in our sorrows.
Beauty reveals the energy beneath the form- and in that energy we can feel the Divine Vibration.
Without any artistic experience required, your time in the studio will help you to open the channel to the flow of Divine Creative Energy.


O God Beautiful Chant:

O God Beautiful; O God Beautiful; At Thy feet, oh, I do bow.

In the forest  Thou art green;
In the mountain  Thou art high;
In the river  Thou art restless;
In the ocean  Thou art grave.

O God Beautiful; O God Beautiful! At Thy feet, oh, I do bow!

To the serviceful  Thou art service;
To the lover  Thou art love;
To the sorrowful  Thou art sympathy;
To the yogi  Thou art bliss.

~ The original chant was written by the 15th century Sikh Guru Nanak. The melody and English translation are from Yogananda.  Learn More 

As we dive into the chant ‘Oh God Beautiful’ you will feel the transporting power of beauty as a quality of the Divine.

Awaken to the deep and profound power of beauty and learn how you can be a channel for Divine Beauty to uplift the world!
