This morning’s donation vinyasa class was blessed with the vocals of Pascale, from Kirtan Path.
What is Kirtan?
Kirtan is the sacred tradition of call-and-response chanting, brought to us from India. Kirtan is one of the principal activities of Bhakti Yoga (the path of devotion). The chants come from the Hindu tradition, but people of all faiths and cultural backgrounds participate in kirtan – it is in essence a meditation, repeating the names of God, turning inward towards ourselves. We experience the energy and vibrations of communal singing, connecting to the Divine and each other, opening our hearts and quieting our minds.
Practicing yoga under willow trees, flying our wings with the sparrows, fingertips stretching to the sun, otters playing on the shore, kirtan drifting through our ears, the waters below our feet.
