Mantra chanting and Kīrtan 


Connecting hearts through devotional mantra chanting 

What is Kīrtan?

Kīrtan, known as the Yoga of the heart, is a call and response style of singing in community. Kīrtan involves repeating sacred mantras to create a high-energy vibration in the body and mind, to reach a heightened state of awareness, returning us to our innate, loving presence and a deep connection to the heart. Instruments often accompany kīrtan as a way to focus and absorb ourselves in the sound and vibration. 


Rachel and friends offer FREE community Kīrtan and bring a plate at 6pm on Wednesday evening.


Our next community Kīrtan however will be on Easter Sunday 31st March at 5pm. You can text 0414 585 688 for the details. Children are welcome.

Mantra chanting

The word mantra comes from the Sanskrit root word manas & traṇa = mantra. Manas refers to the mind and traṇa means to uplift or to protect, or set free. Therefore, mantra can be explained as that which both protects and sets us free from the thinking mind. 

Sanskrit is the language that the yogic teachings were passed down from student to teacher, hence it's called an oral tradition. Teachings in the form of mantras were chanted and memorised. Sanskrit is a language of vibration meaning by chanting the sounds accurately, we will experience the energetic quality.

Chanting in Sanskrit requires focus and dedication

Chanting requires a relationship between the teacher and the student so that the student can accurately repeat what the teacher shares. It is through this call and response pattern that the student refines pronunciation, notation, aspiration and continuity of the sacred sounds.

"Chanting is a way of getting in touch with yourself. It's an opening of the heart and letting go of the mind. It deepens the channel of grace, and it's a way of being present in the moment."
Krishna Das
