Anandra and the Heart of Sound global family engage in several service projects dedicated to spreading the magic of mantra chanting for peace, providing a platform for the global community of pioneers in a variety of sacred sound traditions, and nourishing the next generation of Indian children who will perpetuate the spiritual essence of their traditional cultures.
- Mantras for Peace – a website encouraging chanting mantras for peace, reaching a global community of peacemakers through our free 108-day e-course and regular events offered both in person and online. Anandra created the e-course and the project is now run entirely by volunteers from the Heart of Sound teacher training program. Thousands of people are chanting daily for the 108-day challenge, year round!
- Sacred Sound Stage – a space for the yoga of sound offered all day every day of the famous International Yoga Festival in Rishikesh, India. The SSS is curated by Anandra and staffed by a team of dedicated volunteers from the Heart of Sound teacher training program.
- Educational Projects – proceeds from the Heart of Sound teacher training program are distributed between at least 3 different charitable organizations offering academic, spiritual, and cultural education to underprivileged villagers in India, especially to girls.
