Unwind, Relax, And Sooth Your Mind And Heart

Beautiful, heartfelt singing of sacred mantras accompanied by musical instruments like harmonium, guitar and drums. Kirtan is usually practised as a call and response with one person leading the singing and everyone else joining in afterwards. Participation in kirtan focuses the mind very easily and naturally on the beautiful spiritual sound vibrations, which have the effect of reawakening one’s spiritual consciousness. Kirtan lifts the spirit and brings joy to the heart.

Our Kirtan Programmes

Kirtan is scheduled every Friday 7:00pm – 8:00pm (with light refreshments) and Sunday 5:00pm – 7:30 pm (with a delicious vegetarian meal). It’s run by donation and everyone is welcome.

What is Kirtan

Kirtan is the 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.

Kirtan is the most powerful and enjoyable form of meditation. By meditating on these sacred sounds we reach a state far beyond the stress and worries of life.

The eternal wisdom contained in the yoga texts explain that these mantras are transcendental sounds endowed with unlimited spiritual potency. They purify one’s consciousness and bring deep spiritual insight and inner happiness.
