Kirtan! The Art and Practice of Ecstatic Chant
Kirtan is the calling, the crying, the reaching across infinite space – and digging into the heart’s deepest well – to touch and be touched by the Divine Presence.
On “Kirtan – The Art and Practice of Ecstatic Chant”, world music pioneer Jai Uttal guides us through the profoundly transformative practice of Kirtan singing the many names of God and Goddess – the heart of devotional, or “Bhakti” Yoga.
Kirtan is one of the gifts given to us by the yogis and seers of ancient India, a key to unlock the vast mystery world within our hearts. By chanting these Sanskrit mantras and melodies without inhibition or self-judgment, we effortlessly enter a space of deep emotional release, inner connectedness and surrender. There are no beginners or experts in this practice. Kirtan is simply prayer, and with the power of our own voices and emotions we create a bridge that spans the vast ocean of consciousness and infinite love.
So experiment; listen and sing along with this CD, and join Jai in the passionate songs of “Kirtan”!
