Kirtan is a yoga practice. It is used in these three overlapping paths: Bhakti Yoga, often called the yoga of devotion, Nada Yoga, the yoga of sound vibrations and their effects, and Mantra Yoga. Mantra literally means "the force which liberates the mind". To all of you Cleveland-drumming-lovers, you might want to try kirtan. Please join us at the Studio on west 10th Street in the flats for an hour long meditation with Vandanam featuring Beth Gatchell, Eric Vogt, and George Shumway.
