Come join us in the ancient practice of Kirtan. Part of Bhakti-Yoga* (loving kindness yoga), Kirtan is an audience participation, call-and-response musical form for singing the praises of the Divine. Singing is encouraged as the vibration of the sounds helps to deepen the experience of devotion, but listening is also a profound spiritual experience. Memorization is not necessary to participate.
The Divine has been called by MANY names over such a long period of human existence that the actual naming becomes of secondary importance to the devotional attitude of love, peace, and wisdom! *Bhakti-Yoga is the yoga of devotion to God, and surrender of the personal ego; Kirtan is chanting the names of God in call-and-response style.
