Come chant your heart out with Bhakti Circle! Join Matt Swanner, Carlyn Burczyk and Branden Singleton to spread light and love through chanting and mantra.
The word ‘Kirtan’ means praise — which makes Kirtan music the sound of praise. With roots in the Vedic anukirtana tradition, a kirtan is a call-and-response style song or chant, set to music, wherein multiple singers recite or describe a legend, or express loving devotion to a deity, or discuss spiritual ideas. It may include dancing or direct expression of bhavas (emotive states) by the singer.
Traditional Kirtan songs are in Sanskrit, which is the ancient language of India. The Sanskrit language has inherent spiritual power because of its vibrational effects on the body, mind and soul. This is why the chants, also known as mantras, are most potent when they’re sung in their original form. A Sanskrit mantra can be thought of as channelling the energies of the universe through sound vibrations, where each sound a syllable has a special meaning and effect.
So in bhakti yoga, we lead with our hearts. We sing, we dance, we play music and spread love—all as part of our dialogue with the Divine. So lead with your heart and embrace the universe with bhakti yoga and kirtan chanting!
