Learning Support for Chanting the Śānti Pataḥ – Saha Nāvavatu

Desikachar and Paul Chanting in 1999

Traditionally textual study or chanting practice was preceded and ended with a Śānti Pataḥ or invocatory passage to help forge a link between the chanters, what is chanted and its purport, as well as setting a context for textual study.
