What is mantra or Kirtan?
Rooted in India, many of the songs are sung in Sanskrit. The ability to quiet the mind if listened to with intention. Everyone experiences Kirtan or mantra differently, and it doesn’t have to be a religious experience. Kirtan is non-denominational, the Universal language of Spirit, the song of the Soul. You can think of it as a sing-along. The chants are sung in Sanskrit. The wallah (leader) sings the mantra, and the audience sings it back, call and response. The ancient chants are believed to contain powerful renewing & transformative energy that helps us reconnect with the Divinity that resides within all of us. Singing is the heart of Kirtan, and no one cares what you sound like. At a Kirtan concert all voices merge together to become One Voice.
Bhakti, a devotion to the highest, most awake version of ourselves and others.
“Kirtan is a means of finding our way back to the core of our Being, to our heart, and to our connection with each other.”
