Spirit of Kirtan Celebration
A SPECIAL WORLDWIDE CELEBRATION
Join us in a night of fun-filled, joyous festivities as we celebrate the birth of Sri Chaitanya who began the glorious kirtan tradition that is now sweeping the globe.
CHANT ~ DANCE ~ FEAST
Kirtan nourishes the deepest needs of the soul. Come and immerse yourself in the joyous singing, ecstatic dancing and spiritual love that kirtan brings to our lives. Join us with lots of joyous, uplifting kirtan, Vedic story-telling, timeless bhajans, dancing and feasting.
Come Celebrate With Us!
Sri Chaitanya appeared 500 years ago, just before sunset on a beautiful full moon night in Bengal, India. His main purpose was to spread kirtan all over the world as the method of self-realisation in this age of Kali, the age of quarrel, chaos and confusion.
Sri Chaitanya changed the very fabric of society by begging everyone to participate in kirtan meditation, the singing the divine names of the Supreme.
He simply asked to chant these wonderful mantras, dance with abandon and enjoy the perfect happiness of spiritual love. He plundered the storehouse of love for the Supreme, tasted the sweetness himself and distributed it to everybody without discrimination.
Sri Chaitanya glorified Kirtan as; “The prime benediction for humanity because it spreads the rays of the benediction moon, it increases the ocean of transcendental bliss and enables us to taste the nectar for which we are always anxious.” [Sri Siksastakam 1]
