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 normally scheduled every Friday at 6:30pm – 8:00pm (with light refreshments) and Sunday at 5:00pm – 7:30 pm (with a delicious vegetarian meal), but just now is livestreamed on our Facebook page only, due to COVID-19 restrictions. It’s run by donation and everyone is welcome.
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.
