A kirtan is a time of group chanting and meditation. Chanting opens the heart; allowing us to express devotion and to feel God’s presence more deeply. Sing to God in a deeply intimate and loving way to draw His response.
The chants Ananda sings are mostly composed and written by Paramhansa Yogananda and Swami Kriyananda. can quickly catch on to simple chants – the lines repeat and the melodies are easy to learn. Short periods of silent meditation are interspersed between chants. All are welcome.
“The secret of meditation is singing to God, out loud or silently, to awaken devotion in the heart” – Swami Kriyananda
