Integral Yoga Kirtan - with Sri Swami Satchidananda
Chanting calms the nerves, purifies the emotions, heals the body and opens the heart. It elevates and concentrates the mind, preparing one for silent mantra repetition, meditation and communion with the Divine. Chanting done with a devotional attitude lifts the emotion toward selfless, divine love.
Throughout the ages, individuals have sought to realize the spirit within through music and sound vibration. And many of the world faiths and traditions incorporate this spiritual practice. Generations of ancient and modern yogis also have developed this uplifting practice, calling it kirtan and using the Sanskrit language.
The Integral Yoga Kirtan was formulated by the world-renowned Yoga Master and interfailth leader H.H. Sri Swami Satchidananda (Sri Gurudev). He selected these mantras, chants and prayers and carefully arranged the order to lead the chanter towards a very special and profound experience. The kirtan is done in the classic “call and response” format and when repeated with concentration, can lead the chanter to experience such divine qualities as happiness, peace, prosperity, love and light.
We are grateful to Sri Gurudev for leading this kirtan and lending his own powerful vibration of peace.
