Dear All, It is finally Fall ! Air is crisper, there is a slight chill in the morning, pumpkins everywhere from coffee to skin masks !  and I am loving it. We have lot of festivals around this time of the year and universally many different cultures celebrate at the same time. For Hindus we have two important festivals. Navaratri followed by Diwali  in November. In south India, in the state of Tamil Nadu where my family originally belongs to, we celebrate Navaratri- 9 nights of Goddesses by decorating clay and wood dolls on odd numbered steps. This is called

Why are people drawn to Kirtan

Why are people drawn to Kirtan? For the past years, an increase in the number of people that seem to be connecting with Kirtan can be observed in the US. What is it with Kirtan that gets people’s attention? Is it the chants and melodies used? Is it because it is offered at a favorite Yoga studio? Is it the novelty of the language, or passion for music?Is it because it is the latest trendy thing to do or is it because it leaves us totally relaxed and rejuvenated? Whatever be the reason, Kirtan singing connects people. It brings a

Science behind Music

What does science say about Kirtan and Chanting? Is there any scientific research to prove all the claims made by Kirtan singers/teachers ? Turns out there is !!

When we know the meaning of the mantra we are reciting, it creates a Psycholinguistic effect [PLE] on the body. The NLE

It makes you feel more alive, fresh, peaceful and Happy. Like we need physical exercise for good health, we need chanting to nourish our souls, heart and spirit. When we listen to Kirtans or chants for meditation it deepens our Yoga Practice. Chanting and listening to chants for meditation empowers our mental and spiritual processes.

Kirtan in Los Angeles
Kirtan in Los Angeles

Kirtan from other side of Pacific- Finding true meaning of Kirtan I still remember that day with overcast bluish-grey sky, sun trying hard to peek out from clouds, cars zooming past ours on multi-lane freeway and a sense of almost child-like wonderment that I had when I first landed at LAX, from India in Dec 2002. I was a newly married bride then and my husband worked and lived here in the USA. This country, its tall skyscrapers, American English, dollar bills, vast freeways, thousands of cars on them, everything was a new experience for me. For the first couple of
