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!
Award winning recipients of the Los Angeles Music Awards, Spirit Soul And Friends invites you to come share their goal of utilizing music, peaceful mantras, yoga and dance to help create a more peaceful society. Their 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:
“Those who are advanced and highly qualified and are interested in the essence of life know the good qualities of Kali yuga. Such people worship the age of kali because in this age, simply by chanting the names of the Lord, one can advance in spiritual knowledge and attain life’s goal.”
~ Srimad Bhagavatam Canto 11.5:36
He is Allah, the Creator (Al-Khallaq and Al-Fatir), the Evolver (Al-, the Bestower of forms/colors (Al-Wahhab). To Him belong the Most Beautiful Names, whatever is in the heaven and on earth, doth declare His praises and glory: and He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise (Al-Hakim).
~ Koran 59:24
(last sentence of Jesus’s prayer to God) ~ And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it : that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them and I in them.
~ John 17 : 26
