What is Kirtan ? Kirtan is an ancient mantra meditation practice of call and response singing and chanting, from the heart that helps us connect with our truest nature. Kirtan meditation brings us home to the deepest longings of our heart . Kirtan is the inviting and begging of grace to enter our hearts and light our path. It is the chanting of mantras with musical accomplishment , and the funkiest uplifting meditation experience out there. The ultimate kirtan experience is when everyone is contributing to the evening by being consciously present thus everyone is encouraged to sing and be part of the creative energy. But if you haven't yet heard of kirtan you will have to try it for yourself to believe it , as to love kirtan is know kirtan.
