WHAT IS KIRTAN?

Kirtan is a key part of the bhakti (devotional) yoga tradition where chanting and singing become a practice in and of themselves.  Kirtan is mantra meditation put to music and sung in a call and response fashion.  The focus on repetition of the mantra is to cut through the mind 'stuff', by retaining and repeating a single pointed focus on the mantra.

Kirtan mantras are often accompanied by the playing of traditional instruments such as harmoniums, violins, tablas, hand cymbals and bansuri (flute).  Modern exponents of musical mantra like Dj Drez and MC Yogi use hip hop beats and sampling!  There's a vast amount of inspiring recorded and live musical mantras out in the world now.  Explore!
