What we're about

Minnesota Kirtan Gatherings is your source for events related to kirtan, chanting, devotional singing, and mantra music in Minnesota and sometimes Western Wisconsin. These gatherings are supportive of the personal exploration of the spiritual path and living in community with an open heart and mind. Kirtan is a devotional practice, rooted in Bhakti yoga. Chanting and devotional singing creates an instant connection to the Divine, regardless of denomination.

Song sheets can be downloaded here: http://www.kirtanpath.com/lyrics.html Open your heart to the rhythmic flow of call-and-response chanting and feel the energy of this powerful yogic practice. "Love is the door, chanting is the key." About the event: Kirtan is the sacred tradition of call-and-response chanting, brought to us from India. Kirtan is one of the principal activities of Bhakti Yoga (the path of devotion). The chants come from the Hindu tradition, but people of all faiths and cultural backgrounds participate in kirtan - it is in essence a meditation, repeating the names of the God, turning inward towards ourselves. About the artist: Kirtan Path has been singing with the greater Twin Cities kirtan community since 2009. They participated in several local festivals over the years, such as the Twin Cities Kirtan Festival, the Twin Cities Yoga Festival, India in Iowa, and the Inner Peace Festival. Kirtan Path was honored to sing at three Bhakti Fest Midwest festivals as well as the 2018 and 2019 Midwest Yoga and Kirtan Fests. They released one CD to date, titled Samgayati - A Gathering in Song. Kirtan Path currently consists of the wife/husband team Parvati (harmonium/vocals) and Doug (mrdanga).
