Kirtan is the practice of call-and-response chanting that is an aspect of Bhakti Yoga, the devotional practice of yoga. Integral Yoga Kirtan is designed to calm the nerves, purify the emotions, heal the body, and open the heart. We open by singing the syllable “OM,” the Cosmic Consciousness manifested as vibration. The kirtan continues with chants to invoke the presence and guidance of the Cosmic Consciousness, chants to invoke aspects of the divine and bring out our own divine nature, and universal chants that produce a very powerful spiritual vibration within us. The kirtan concludes with chants for peace and the well-being of the entire creation. We finish with a brief meditation.
