I was a newly married bride then and my husband worked and lived here in the USA.

About Kirtans

I come from a very strict Indian Classical music background. However, I LOVE singing Kirtans and sharing my music, singing together, feeling the love flow. Singing Kirtans is extremely meditative, rejuvenates and relieves stress. I always believe that all good things need to be shared and sharing Kirtans with other multiplies its positive effects. I organize a Kirtan MeetUp group in Simi Valley, CA. http://www.meetup.com/SimiValleyKirtan/ I will be sharing my thoughts on Kirtans in this page.   We all know that Meditation offers innumerable benefits for your body, mind and spirit. The rest you gain in meditation is deeper than […]
