Namaste dear friends!
We are very excited to announce that we will be starting a Sankirtan monthly residency at the beautiful holistic and spiritual yoga center Liberate Yourself in Sherman Oaks! We will be playing on the 3rd Saturday of every month starting this Saturday, November 19th onwards! The Sankirtans will begin at 8 pm and will feature a beautifully uplifting program of sacred mantras, bhajans, ragas, cosmic chants, original compositions and wonderful Indian dance performances by our lovely Indian dancer Estella Harris! We will also be live streaming these events for those who can't join us in person.
Sankirtan is an ancient spiritual and meditative practice from the bhakti yoga tradition of India which helps to open up the heart fully to receive the love of the Divine thereby yielding complete healing of body, mind, and soul. Paramahansa Yoganada who brought the ancient art and science of devotional chanting has described the essence of Sankirtan in the following words from his spiritual classic Autobiography of a Yogi:
"The Sankirtans or musical gatherings are an effective form of yoga or spiritual discipline, necessitating intense concentration, absorption in the seed thought and sound. Because man himself is an expression of the Creative Word, sound exercises on him a potent and immediate effect. Great religious music of the East and West bestows joy on man because it causes a temporary vibratory awakening of one of his occult spinal centers. In those blissful moments a dim memory comes to him of his divine origin" -Paramahansa Yogananda
To register for these events you can simply visit the show section of our website.
We hope you can join us and experience the deeply healing vibrations of Sankirtan so that we can send those healing vibrations out into the ether permeating the whole world and universe with the divine light, love, and bliss generated by this powerful spiritual practice!
