POSTPONED UNTIL JUNE 22, 2014 ~ Due to Memorial Day, Kirtan Jam has been postponed until June 22, 2014. Please join us then. Have a safe holiday weekend everyone! ~ Madhavaya & Annette
HAVE YOU HEARD OF KIRTAN? WOULD YOU LIKE TO EXPERIENCE IT? HAVE YOU BEEN TO A KIRTAN AND WANT MORE?
Kirtan is a universally recommended practice in all spiritual processes throughout the world.
Come and engage in the spiritual practice of kirtan, a non-denominational practice, that has been passed down since time immemorial and a constant in all paths and religions.
Getting together as a group is a fun way to do this! It is a great activity for families and communities at large. We can sing mantras using all kinds of instruments and genres of music. Oftentimes, people will get up and move to the beautiful transcendental sounds or groove to a rock out kirtan. There are no hard and fast rules to singing Holy Names!
Our friends from WE LOVE YOGA (http://www.weloveyogalb.com/We_Love_Yoga/Home.html) in Long Beach invite you all for an evening of relaxation meditation and joyful kirtan.

We invite you to come share the goal of utilizing music, peaceful mantras, yoga and dance to help create a more peaceful society. Our main goal is to give a gift of peace that you can take with you. You will be hearing and singing beautiful mantras and transcendental sounds that create peace and harmony by their spiritual potency wherever you go!

SCRIPTURE FROM AROUND THE WORLD WITH REGARDS TO CHANTING THE HOLY NAMES:
“Hare Krsna Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare-these sixteen names composed of thirty syllables are the only means to counteract the effects of Kali yuga. In the Vedas it is seen that to cross the ocean of nescience there is no alternative to chanting of the Holy name.”
~ Kalisantara Upanisad
