CELEBRATING WORLD YOGA DAY
KIRTAN IS THE LIFE AND SOUL OF YOGA AND WE'LL BE CELEBRATING YOGA DAY WITH AN UPLIFTING FUN-FILLED KIRTAN PARTY THAT WILL TOUCH YOUR HEART AND ROCK YOUR WORLD
Chant for Peace Events have been established by ‘Pralad & The Chants’ kirtan band to bring the peace and joy of kirtan to all. They hold these events from Ballina to the Sunshine Coast and interstate. For World Yoga day they are collaborating with The Mantra Room West End for a kirtan fiesta that will benefit not only the participants but will help bring peace to the whole planet.
We've got a spectacular evening organised with popular well known kirtan bands, Pralad'n the Chants, Soul Sistas tribal flow dance fusion, Mantra breathing, yoga wisdom, Indian dance, prizes and giveaways and amazing vegetarian/vegan food, including chai and dessert.
The United Nations declared the first international yoga day on June 21 2015. In 2017 we celebrate World Yoga Day on Saturday June 24th for the 3rd International Day of Yoga to raise worldwide awareness that yoga isn't just about exercies. Yoga is an ancient, holistic approach to health and wellbeing that promotes harmony between individuals, their community, their natural environment and the wider world.
Ancient yogis understood yoga as a complete lifestyle and world view that can help you to discover who you are as well as your relationship to the world and nature and as such can provide valuable insights into addressing environmental challenges and promoting peace in the individual, peace in communities and peace in the world. The sages of India understood that the outer can change by changing the inner, that the nature of our consciousness therefore affects the nature of our environment.
Without the respect for people of different races, ethnicities or religions, how can we have a peaceful and harmonious society or world and without a harmonious society how can there be the necessary economic development and atmosphere conducive to spiritual happiness and self-realisation? Jagad Guru Siddhaswarupananda
For the world to be peaceful we need to be peaceful within ourselves, but how can we find inner-peace? We can find inner-peace in sacred sound or mantra. So let’s join together and immerse ourselves in an evening of blissful kirtan meditation and take that journey together as true brothers and sisters to a world of inner peace and harmony.

Thank you so much for putting the time, effort and energy towards bringing everyone together yesterday. I played all out and haven't had so much fun in a long time, and I was on my own! Every band was sensational, and my special thanks to Tribal Flow who taught me how to express myself without conditions or judgement.
I'll keep an eye out on my emails and I look forward to attending more Chant for Peace events in the future!
