Kirtan & filing paperwork
I have pretty much spent the whole day today filing paperwork and listened to my favourite Kirtan songs to cheer me up. If you don’t know what Kirtan is here is a beautiful description a friend of mine has sent me. It is one of my favourite yoga practices and you can often find me chanting away at home.
I thought I would share one of my all time favourite Kirtan songs with you from Shantala – Baba Hanuman. If you have spotify you can listen to it there too.
“Kirtan, the singing or chanting of sacred mantras, or Transcendental Sound, is an easy yet sublime method of yoga meditation that has been practiced since time immemorial. It is the recommended process for self-realization in the modern age and has the gradual effect of cleansing your heart and mind, helping you to awaken and cultivate your inherent wisdom and spiritual love.”
If you are interested to explore Kirtan, please let me know and I can forward some details to you. There is a local group who meets once per month to sing Kirtan songs. It is a really healing and heart opening practice.
When I first started listening to Kirtan I listened to lots of Deva Premal – Doris Blum from Breathe Yoga intruduced me to it many many years ago and I have been hooked ever since.
