Come to davannayoga at 7:30 pm on Friday, April 30 to practice devotional singing with Raoul Diaz, founder of Saraswati Multidimensional Creativity Organization. A brief background on Kirtan will be given for those who aren't familiar with Kirtan. Bring a friend and bring instruments if you like. Be prepared for an inspirational evening. Children are welcome.
What is Kirtan?
The Sanskrit word "Kirtana" means Telling, Repeating, Mentioning, Celebrating. In Yoga, the practice of Kirtan is a call-and-response chanting of ancient vibrational Sanskrit mantras to empty out unnecessary thoughts and bring sacred energy.
Deeply rooted in Vedic traditions and going back more than 500 years, the devotional song/chants called kirtans are still used today as a path to spiritual enlightenment. Kirtan offers a means to connect to the heart, to the divinity that lies within and is seen as a "singing to the Divine."
It is the combination of the ancient mantras, the classical Indian musical instruments playing music from long ago, the length of the chanting (each chant or song can last for about 20 minutes) and the group environment that elevate the individual mind to a place of spiritual enlightenment.
Not to be missed!
