Charya dance has been practiced by the Newari priests of the Kathmandu Valley in Nepal for hundreds of years. Charya Nritya in sanskrit means dance as a spiritual discipline. Charya Nritya is a moving mediation, tailored to specific deities, which enables the dancer to fully become the deity in body, speech, and mind, in order to benefit all beings. In Charya dance we learn to build a different understanding of space; outer space and their own inner meditative space. Charya is also called the dance of the mudras which helps us develop a deeper understanding and recognition of the Buddhist deity and explore the transcendent qualities of sound through reciting the relevant deity dance mantra and song.
