Kirtan refers to chanting – one of the main practices of yoga. Classic Indian instruments, such as the harmonium and drum accompany the chant, while simple Sanskrit mantras are repeated in a call-and-response fashion, from the leader to the group, building in energy and tempo.
Many people find it challenging to sit and meditate, but with kirtan, the struggle of ‘turning off’ or ’emptying’ your mind melts away as you focus solely on the singing, sound, music and mantras. A sitting of the mind is an easy, welcome effect of this practice as well as a natural feeling of uplifting joy and inner peace.
Please join us at the Bhakti Loft for an enchanting evening of kirtan!
