Kirtan is a very simple & powerful way to meditate. Kirtan is non-denominational, the Universal language of Spirit, the song of the Soul. It’s effortless & joyful; the music does the work for you as you flow with the melody & rhythm. * The performers & the concert-goers create the experience together. * The chants are sung in Sanskrit. The ancient chants contain powerful renewing & transformative energy that helps us reconnect with the Divinity that resides within all of us. * Singing is the heart of kirtan, and no one cares what you sound like. At a kirtan concert all voices merge together to become One Voice. * “Kirtan is a means of finding our way back to the core of our Being, to our heart, and to our connection with each other.” Here are some more interesting things about kirtan. * It began in India centuries ago as a spiritual practice, and was known as the layman’s way to connect with the Divine. * In the last ten years, kirtan has become a phenomenon across the United States, and has transformed musically to appeal to the ears of American audiences. * Kirtan is a new kind of concert experience here in the West. It’s not so much a performance as a journey into the self through the practice of listening & singing. The leaders at a kirtan concert are called wallahs, and everyone is part of the music. My all-time favorite descriptions of a kirtan concert: “It’s like singing around a campfire”, “It’s like a hootenanny with meditation.” * While singing along at a kirtan concert, you can experience your own voice becoming as beautiful as those performing-all voices merge together to become One Voice.
