Mantra, Kīrtan and Community


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.

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.

"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
