Kirtan is a sacred method of group meditation that incorporates music and soul warming singing/chanting. Kirtan is a spiritual journey, a form of bhakti yoga — the yoga of devotion.

The Mantra Room offers live music combined with sacred yoga chants in a relaxed, enchanting atmosphere. Featured kirtan leader Gopala dasi whose sweet and heartfelt chanting will leave you feeling inspired and Balarama Krishna das whose cruising melodies will soothe the soul.
The experience of Kirtan is like no other; the leader sings the mantra, everyone sings it back. It's meditative and beautifully immersive.

KIRTAN - The Sound of the Soul Singing
What is Kirtan?
Kirtan is the singing of ancient Vedic mantras, spiritually uplifting songs, prayers and the Sacred Names of the Supreme. Kirtan is a personal journey of self discovery done in a group with like-minded people.
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, Kirtan is simultaneously a meditative and a soul fulfilling joyful experience.
Kirtan is the most powerful and enjoyable form of meditation. By meditating on sacred sounds we reach a state far beyond the stress and worries of life.
The eternal wisdom contained in the yoga texts explain that the sacred mantras are transcendental sounds endowed with unlimited spiritual potency. They purify one’s consciousness and bring deep spiritual insight and inner happiness.
Everyone is looking for something real, lasting and fully satisfying in their life. That “something” is reconnecting to our spiritual source, to experience spiritual love. Kirtan nourishes the soul’s deepest needs by reawakening this spiritual love within our hearts. From this place of peace, love, joy and harmony, let the rest of your life unfold.
Come and join in the inspiring experience that is live kirtan.
