Swami Nishchalananda chants the Gayatri mantra

The morning chant in the ashram has changed from Mrityunjaya healing mantra to the Gayatri mantra, which we chant 27 times at 7.30 a.m. every morning. Swamiji decided that this mantra is now more appropriate to the times as they develop from the Coronavirus pandemic; times that need compassion but also wisdom.
