Immerse yourself in an endless river of prayer through music
March 31, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join Kate Spear for a free community Kirtan hosted on Aspen Shakti’s Zoom channel this Tuesday at 7:00pm.
Kirtan is a very different kind of music. Based on ancient chants, it has the ability to quiet the mind if listened to with intention. Kirtan is part of an ancient form of Yoga known as Bhakti, or the Yoga of Devotion. Everyone experiences kirtan differently, and it doesn’t have to be a religious experience. It can be thought of as a sing-along. There’s not much of a distinction between performers & audience. The wallah (leader) sings the mantra, and the audience sings it back. As we sing with each other we experience a deep connection with the musicians, the other audience members and ourselves. And, as we sing, we touch the spirits of the millions of people across the centuries who have sung the same songs and cried the same tears. As we sing, we immerse ourselves in an endless river of prayer that has been flowing since the birth of the first human beings, longing to know their creator. And when the music stops, the mind is quiet.
