Aditya Hrudayam Hanuman Chalisa Summer Camp Semi-Classical Dance Bhajans

 

Aditya Hrudayam

Solar power is the source of all life in our world. Therefore, it is appropriate that we worship the unseen intelligence behind the solar power – The Sun God, Aditya.  Before doing battle with the demon Ravana, Rishi Agastya advised Sri Rama to chant this hymn to gain the strength.  It is said that those who chant this hymn daily gain shining good health.

Srikrithi Pallemoni, a rising High School junior, attended Balvikas classes and the summer programs offered at the temple throughout her childhood, where she leant many valuable lessons. Wanting to give back to the community, she took on the role of  an assistant teacher in the Balvikas program, and Aditya Hrudayam  program and has been teaching for 2 years. In fact, she got a chance to learn the Aditya Hrudayam few years ago through this very Balvikas Summer Program, and found that anytime she was nervous or anxious, chanting the Aditya Hrudayam helped her overcome that situation. She hopes to share this powerful shloka with you, to help further empower you with god’s blessings.

Sreenidhi Palaniappan is a rising senior this year. She began her journey with Bharatnatyam at the tender age of 5 and has continued learning the art for the past ten years. After discovering her passion for dance through a school performance, her parents enrolled her in a Bharatnatyam class in which she learned not just Bharatnatyam but also means of expressing herself and learning more about the Indian culture. She has completed her Kala Archana, showcasing everything a Bharatnatyam dancer must learn before graduating and is preparing for her Arengetram. Dance has always alleviated her tensions and helped her find joy, and she hopes to spread this positivity, energy, and enjoyment to young, aspiring dancers!
