Live Kirtan – sacred yoga chanting – come celebrate, meditate and let the music set you free.
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.
The heart and soul of the evening is the joyous, enlivening chanting. The yoga teaching glorifies the sacred chanting as “the prime benediction for humanity because it spreads the rays of the benediction moon, it increases the ocean of transcendental bliss and enables us to fully taste the nectar for which we are always anxious.” Reawaken your spiritual consciousness and be transported to a place of peace and harmony.
