Afterwards enjoy delicious vegetarian snacks, compliments of Pattarajni.
Kirtan is an ancient yogic practice which utilizes simple Sanskrit words, and infectious melodies. Sung call and response style, it's a part of the rich Indian devotional chant tradition. It's a little like gospel, a little like meditation, and it's great fun. The audience is encouraged to participate by chanting, clapping and even dancing. It's hard to resist the urge to join in! In its heartfelt expression, Kirtan can induce profound states of meditation and bliss.
