Thursday Night Kirtan

Bhakti SF

Sing, move, dance! Mantra meditation or "kirtan" is a very different kind of music. Based on ancient chants, it has the ability to quiet the mind if listened to with intention. Everyone experiences this type of meditation differently. You can think of it as a sing-along. You can sing, or dance, or just observe. Mantra chanting is easy and it can yield great benefits for physical and mental health.

This night includes a wonderful vegan meal cooked with devotion – Daal, rice, salad and dessert.

Bhakti Center warmly invites you to experience this wonderful event every Thursday from 6:30 - 8 PM.
