Integral Yoga Kirtan BookletKirtan is the chanting of divine sounds or names. Chanting calms the nerves, purifies the emotions and opens the heart. It elevates the mind, preparing one for silent mantra repetition and meditation. It is a joyful practice leading to God-realization. The Integral Yoga Kirtan, developed by Sri Swami Satchidananda, is unique in its inclusive and multifaith approach.
