KIRTANA NIGHT AND BUFFET INDIAN DINNER - Sliding scale $10-$25 for dinner and kirtana. Please pre register here! Our talented friends are rolling through town and we are so happy to host them here at Happy Girl. A great way to start the week!
Kirtan is an ancient form of mantra meditation, a component of bhakti-yoga (the yoga of devotion), which has the power to open and purify the heart. This chanting, accompanied by musical instruments and rhythmic drumming, brings the audience to its feet in the joy of singing, clapping, and dancing with pure devotion. In its heartfelt expression kirtan can induce profound states or meditation, bliss, and esctasy. You will not be able to resist the urge to join in!
Madhu (Madhuri pura Dasa) and Ananda (Ananda Murari Dasa) have been practicing and teaching kirtan for many years in the bhakti-yoga tradition. Playing together throughout India and North America, their passion for kirtan has inspired and enlivened persons from all cultural backgrounds. Madhu and Ananda see kirtan as the universal song of all cultures seeking spiritual understanding, and they feel privileged to have the opportunity to share ecstatic kirtan everywhere they go.
