Ahkanda Kirtan

8-hour mantra singing, 16-18 August

Akhanda kirtan is a potent and easy means to capture the mind. While singing kirtan the mind is filled with sattwa, pure vibrations, and supreme peace and joy are experienced. It purifies the heart and gives many other benefits. No other practice will induce divine, ecstatic states as quickly and as powerfully as akhanda kirtan.
Swami Sivananda Saraswati
