Mantra - kirtan
Monthly Kirtan Night - Sing Your Heart Open
Every second Tuesday of each month - Yoga Shala, Kawai Purapura Retreat Centre, Albany, Auckland
7.30 - 9.00pm ($5.00)
Kirtan means ‘free the mind’ and is part of the yoga practice we call Bhakti yoga (devotional 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!
