Kirtan is a universally recommended activity in all spiritual processes throughout the world. Engage and experience Kirtan, a non-denominational practice that has been passed down since time immemorial and a constant in all paths and religions.

Getting together as a group is a fun way to do this! It is a great activity for families and communities. We can sing mantras using all kinds of instruments and genres of music. Oftentimes, people will get up and move to the beautiful transcendental sounds or groove to a rock out kirtan. There are no hard and fast rules!

You will be hearing and singing beautiful mantras and transcendental sounds that create peace and harmony by their spiritual potency wherever you go! Come taste the sweet nectar of true happiness and peace.


Aloha and Namaste,
