Mantra - kirtan

Monthly Kirtan Night - Sing Your Heart Open

7.30 - 9.00pm, Entry fee. 

Monthy:  The Yoga Ground | Level 1, 56 Surrey Crescent | Grey Lynn | Auckland

Kawai Purapura kirtan collective began out of our passion for sharing sacred sound through chanting Sanskrit mantras and connecting to the bhakti tradition. It's a monthly community event that generates a positive wave of energy, where people from all walks of life gather and experience a dynamic form of meditation. The Kirtan experience enables vocal exploration, healing through sound and personal transformation.  Open to all. 


Kirtan means ‘free the mind’ and is part of the yoga practice we call Bhakti yoga. By chanting mantras you create a sound vibration in your body and it is a beautiful way to open your heart. As you sing with each other you experience a deep connection with yourself and the other kirtanists.


Kirtan has roots in India, so many of the songs are in Sanskrit. This allows you to immerse in the sound, no words to distract the mind. The magic of the chants can then carry you within where connection with peace and calm are inevitable. Kirtan is the the yoga of the future!
