What Is Kirtan?

WHAT IS KIRTAN?

Kirtan is the joyous chanting or singing of the many unlimited Transcendental Names (Mantras) of God. Kirtan is a way for people to engage as a group using mantras. Man means mind. Tra means that which frees. A mantra is a sound vibration that frees or delivers the mind from its attachment and preoccupation with worldly matters, and focuses it on the Supreme. Meditation is the activity of using the mind to reflect deeply and continuously on spiritual matters. This universal principle for spiritual reawakening is recommended in the Bible (both Old and New Testaments), Koran and Vedic Scriptures. This practice is completely non-sectarian and non-denominational. Kirtan is a spiritual tool to purify one's consciousness and bring the soul real peace and happiness; Peaceful individuals create a peaceful society.


Come and engage in the spiritual practice of Kirtan that has been passed down since time immemorial. Getting together as a group is a fun way to do this! It is a great activity for families with kids and communities at large. We can chant mantras using all kinds of instruments and genres of music. Oftentimes, people will get up and move to the beautiful transcendental sounds and groove to "Rock Out Kirtan". There are no hard and fast rules to chanting!
