On Thursday, June 13th, we will have a special Hanuman Kirtana featuring kirtan artists Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda. The concert will be at Dallas & Jennifer's home with a potluck dinner beginning at 6pm and music from 7-9pm. Feel free to come for just the concert if you can't make the potluck! Jaya Lakshmi & Ananda have asked for a sliding scale contribution of $10-20 to support their tour and travel costs.

Jaya Lakshmi has been leading kirtan with harmonium and 12-string guitar and writing her own devotional songs since the early 1990s. She received harinam initiation from Srila Govinda Maharaj, a great Vaisnava saint from West Bengal, India, who graciously bestowed on her the name “Jaya Lakshmi”, which means “victory to the goddess Lakshmi”, the Hindu goddess of fortune and spiritual wealth. Since coming together with Ananda in November 2010, she has been steadily involved in their collaboration of sacred music and creating Altar of Love Immersions which involve teaching yoga together, performing music and holding ceremony. She has sung on stage with Jai Uttal, Shimshai, Tina Malia, Dave Stringer, Phil Lesh, and Benjy and Heather Wertheimer among other great artists and played for many yoga classes and retreats with well known teachers such as Saul David Raye, Sianna Sherman, Janet Stone, Pete Guinosso, and Dawn Cartwright.
