What is Kirtan Meditation?

Kirtan, the singing or chanting of sacred mantras, or Transcendental Sound, is an easy yet sublime method of yoga meditation that has been practiced since time immemorial. It is the recommended process for self-realization in the modern age and has the gradual effect of cleansing your heart and mind, helping you to awaken and cultivate your inherent wisdom and spiritual love.

The eternal wisdom contained in the yoga texts explain that these mantras are transcendental sounds endowed with unlimited spiritual potency. They purify one’s consciousness and bring deep spiritual insight and inner happiness.

Kirtan is for Everyone

Kirtan is enjoyed by people of all ages and cultural backgrounds. Kirtan transcends all languages, nationalities, and religious faiths. Anyone can practice kirtan. You can be five or 95; physically fit or unfit. You may be a practitioner of yoga asanas, or you may be disabled and in a wheel chair. It doesn’t matter if you are a scholar or illiterate; single or married; man or woman. Kirtan is as universal as a beautiful sunrise.

Benefits of Kirtan

Regularly immersing your heart and mind in kirtan will illuminate your path in life, and shed light on your relationships with others, your work, your environment, how to deal with failures and setbacks, and on every aspect of your life.

Not only does kirtan help relieve stress, worries, and anxiety, it awakens and cultivates the innate wisdom, happiness, and spiritual love lying dormant within you. By gradually cleansing your heart and mind, you can discover and experience your real identity, self-worth, and purpose in life.

How is Kirtan practiced?

Kirtan is sometimes called music meditation as it incorporates playing musical instruments, singing, chanting, and dancing. However, it can be practiced with or without instruments, and in any musical style. You can practice alone or in a small or large group. You can chant loudly or softly, you can dance, or remain seated. Kirtan is generally practiced in call and response style, where one person will lead the kirtan by chanting a mantra, and others respond in unison, repeating the mantra.
