Kirtan is a form of devotional chanting with roots going back many centuries in India. It is a primary practice on the path of Bhakti Yoga. The singing is accompanied by musical instruments and rhythmic drumming and the audience is encouraged to participate by chanting, clapping and dancing. In its heartfelt expression kirtan can induce profound states of meditation and bliss.

On Saturday, May 6th, The Bhakti Center will observe a traditional holiday, celebrating the divine appearance of Sri Nrsimhadeva the half-man half-lion avatar of Lord Vishnu, with very special guest speaker Radhanath Swami.
