Bhakti experience is intrinsic part of BYC and that’s what makes this event full of bhav – divine mood.
We already knew Caitanya from workshops with Patrick where he would lead the
“warming up the heart” beginning part of the class, which would make the workshops full of loving warmth. This time it was interesting to hear him and his beautiful wife Madhavi speak of the topic they are devoted to.
So here’s the teaching.
The main instruction for the mind is to be listening, pronouncing and focusing on the meaning of the mantra.

We sang with open hearts to Him
