Featuring collective chanting of Sanskrit mantras, music and more.
Based in one of the most ancient sacred music traditions Kirtan is call-and-response chanting performed in India's bhakti (devotional) path of yoga.
Collective chanting of Sanskrit mantras, bhajans and chants draws the mind to become free of chatter and start to quieten while uplifting the heart and the soul to new heights of joy and bliss.
As much music as magic, chants create sacred vibrations which uplift the listener and charge atmosphere with positive energy. These Sanskrit chants are said to be filled with power, and each it is said, has its own unique and positive effect. From opening the mind, or the heart, to lifting the spirits these sacred songs are much more than beautiful music.
"To gain concentration in this age of materialism, Kirtan is easier than meditation. By loud singing, other distracting sounds will be overcome and concentration will be achieved. Kirtan, concentration and meditation, this is the progression. Children, sing from the depth of your hearts. Let the heart melt in prayer. The joy of singing the Lord’s name is unique. Leave aside all shyness and open your hearts to God.” - Amma
