Find peace in the harmony and beauty of Sanskrit (sanskritam=that which is perfectly done). This is the perfect time to bring the meditative quality of this ancient language lying at the root of our own (think “navasana” or boat pose and “navy”) into our lives, with its graceful sounds and ancient mantras.
