🎼What is Kirtan?🎼
Kirtan is an Indian form of collective devotional chanting music, part of an ancient form of Yoga known as Bhakti – Yoga of Devotion. This form of devotional chanting has roots that go back over 500+ years to India and have the power to open the heart and quiet the mind.
The word Kirtan comes from the Sanskrit root word “kirti”, which is a sacred language of ancient India meaning “to communicate, to celebrate, to praise, to glorify.”
Mantras are chanted in Sanskrit, Gurbani, Hindi and many other languages and were created by the rishi’s (wise ones) as paths to awareness, using the power of particular sounds to create specific energy responses. The word mantra derives from Sanskrit, which is divided into “man” meaning mind and “tra” meaning to free from. Mantras are quite literally tools to free the mind.
The singing in Kirtan is accompanied by musical instruments and rhythmic drumming and the audience are encouraged to participate by chanting – call & response, clapping and dancing.
Kirtan digs into the heart’s deepest well to touch and be touched by the Divine Presence while singing over and over the many names of God and the Goddess.
LET’S COME TOGETHER AS A COMMUNITY TO CELEBRATE LIFE, LOVE AND DEVOTION
