What we're about
Hi, I'm Darren -- a NYC based kirtan artist. Kirtan is the call and response singing of mantra and uplifting English lyrics. It is an integral part of the path of Bhakti Yoga which is the yogic path of love and devotion. The word kirtan actually means to praise and celebrate the divine. The divine manifests in many forms so when we sing, we offer our praises to all of these forms. As we do that, we still our minds, connect to our hearts, and experience oneness. Ultimately, the names we chant to are reflective of the place inside of us that is pure love, pure awareness, and pure joy. So essentially, kirtan is a practice that helps us uncover our true nature.
