Experience Kirtan@The Mantra Room


Live Kirtan – Sacred Yoga Chanting

Welcome to The Mantra Room, with beautiful singing of sacred mantras, guided meditation, a fantastic vegetarian dinner and an inspiring talk that explores the spiritual essence of yoga.

Kirtan is a dynamic call-and-response sacred world music that incorporates the voices of the audience right into the performance. Kirtan is a spiritual journey, a form of bhakti yoga — the yoga of devotion.

If you haven’t heard of Kirtan there is no better way to learn about it than to come along to The Mantra Room. Sing, dance, clap your hands and have a great time. Let the experience transport you to a world of inspiration, peace and joy, far beyond the stress and worries of life.

The Mantra Room features a vibrant mix of music styles combined with sacred yoga chant in a relaxed, enchanting atmosphere. The experience of Kirtan is like no other; you’re not just listening to the music, the leader sings the mantra, everyone sings it back. It starts off slow and meditative and then the tempo gradually builds and builds, a single chant can go for 30 minutes or longer.

What is Kirtan?

Kirtan is the call-and-response singing of ancient Vedic mantras, spiritually uplifting songs, prayers and the Sacred Names of the Supreme. Rather than being a type of performance, Kirtan is a journey of self discovery.

This ancient yogic practice was traditionally accompanied with Indian instruments. In the hands and voices of contemporary practitioners, Kirtan has been transported beautifully to all cultural and musical styles without losing its genuine spiritual authenticity.

Weaving together melody, music and mantra with people responding to the words of the singer, clapping, swaying and sometimes dancing, Kirtan is simultaneously a meditative, exhilarating and fun activity.
