Kirtan is call-and-response chanting or "responsory" performed in India's bhakti devotional traditions. A person performing kirtan is known as a kirtankar. Kirtan practice involves chanting hymns or mantras to the accompaniment of instruments such as the harmonium, tablas, the two-headed mrdanga or pakawaj drum, and karatal hand cymbals. It is a major practice in Vaisnava devotionalism, Sikhism, the Sant traditions, and some forms of Buddhism, as well as other religious groups.

Satsang in Indian philosophy means (1) the company of the "highest truth," (2) the company of a guru, or (3) company with an assembly of persons who listen to, talk about, and assimilate the truth. This typically involves listening to or reading scriptures, reflecting on, discussing and assimilating their meaning, meditating on the source of these words, and bringing their meaning into one’s daily life. Contemporary spiritual teachers in the West frequently come from the East but can come from any part of the world.

The idea of satsangam was first spread by ancient Rishis such as Vedavyasa and Valmiki who explained its value in numerous ways.

    Why when were the Jews called the chosen people?

      The Jewish are referred to Gods chosen people. We were wondering " chosen for what?" And where in Jewish history did this concept originate. Thank you. See you next time

      There are many places in the Five Books of Moses where this idea appears. The clearest example is from Deuteronomy 7:6 where it is written "For you are a people holy to the LORD your God. The LORD your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be his people, his treasured possession." As for the question of what the nation of Israel was chosen for, again there are a number of places where this is clearly defined. One place is Exodus 19:6 where it is written "You shall be to Me a kingdom of ministers and a Holy Nation." This also explains the many exacting commandments and obligations presented to develop oneself and one's society enough to fulfill this role and become a Holy Nation. Clearly, throughout history, the path to holiness has never been an easy one for either the individual, or, certainly therefore, for an entire nation.
