English. One day online pre-recorded retreat.

Part of the new Amrita Virtual Academy membership.


Amma says that it is good to dedicate one day a month entirely to your Sadhana.

  • About Mantra

    A Mantra is a powerful and transformative tool if we know how to use it. Mantra Sadhana is the spiritual practice of meditative repetition of mantras. It is a powerful technique for harnessing the body/mind’s subtle energies on the yogic path of self-transformation.

    In this one-day retreat you will learn how to deepen and benefit from this practice.

  • Benefits

    Mantra Sadhana overrides our mental conditionings and patterns and produces positive samskaras (tendencies) in our conscious and subconscious mind.

    It increases positive vibrations in the energetic field of the body.

  • How does it work

    The intention of this retreat is for you to have an experience similar to those who take it at Amritapuri Ashram.

    For this reason it is recommended that you set aside a full day for the Mantra Sadhana Retreat to ensure that you get the intended experience.

Suggested Requirements

Our instructor, Swami Atmananda Puri, has made these suggestions, to follow as you are able:

  • Set aside one day for this Sadhana Retreat.

  • To make the most of this retreat, we suggest you choose a day on your calendar that you can fully dedicate yourself to the retreat.

  • Other Requirements

  • Mantra Initiation by Amma. However, if you do not have a Mantra from Amma, you may still take the course.

  • Japa Mala (Rosary with 108 beads).


One-Day Retreat: 
The course curriculum includes a guided mantra purification visualization, mantra sadhana with japa mala, walking mantra meditation, a detailed talk on, “The Power and Importance of Mantra Meditation,” and access to all Q&A sessions conducted over a year.
