Diwali Festival of Lights

Sun 22nd October, 2017 | 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Spring is a time of renewal and new beginnings, a season full of new possibilities. In the yogic or Vedic calendar, this time of year also ushers in Diwali, the festival of lights. According to spiritual tradition, Diwali is a time to celebrate the victory of light over darkness, truth over untruth and righteousness over wrong. More importantly, it is a time of spiritual renewal. What better way to renew your spiritual life than with this beautiful celebration at The Mantra Room!
A spiritual immersion for the senses, one of Brisbane’s most popular kirtan bands, West End Kirtan Collective, will be featuring a variety of kirtan leaders including Jayadharma, a popular yoga teacher whose smokey jazz influenced kirtan will have you tapping your feet and your voice soaring in response; Gayatri, with a melodic and captivating voice that will lead you on an inward journey; and Ishvara, who will have everyone up and dancing with an enlivening, soul inspiring, rocking kirtan.
Enjoy a guided breath meditation and mindfulness experience with Gaytri dasi.
We also have special guest and master story teller Devakinandana dasi, who will be sharing the spellbinding Vedic tale of Diwali.
And as our hearts fill with the bliss of bhakti, our tummy’s will be filled with a delicious $5 Indian vegetarian/vegan feast.
Please bring your friends and families for a heart warming kirtan mela with West End Kirtan Collective in celebration of Diwali – an opportunity to renew and refresh the well of spiritual energy within.
