Bhakti Yoga is called the yoga of devotion. This group will sing many rounds of Kirtan at meetups, and will learn other mantras from the ancient yoga traditions of India. Kirtan is a group singing and music-making experience, involving the ancient Sanskrit chants. Kirtan has the ability to calm the mind and to bring the listener into a meditative state. We will also learn the teachings from the Bhagavad Gita. Mahatma Gandhi wrote, "Those who meditate on the Gita will derive fresh joy and new meanings from it everyday" and we believe this is true. This group is inspired by the life and teachings of His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada who brought Bhakti Yoga and Bhagavad Gita teachings to the USA in 1965. We might also enjoy an amazing Indian style vegan pot-luck feast, depending on where we will meet.
