MAHAMRITUNJAYA HAVAN, CHANTINGS AND KIRTANS
Maha Mritunjaya Havan is performed on Saturdays at 6.30 pm - 7.30 pm for the health, harmony and general well-being of all living beings.
Kirtan is an important aspect of yoga. Just as rasgula is incomplete without sugar, so yoga is also incomplete without kirtan. Kirtan is not religious chanting, nor is it just singing one word many times. It is a part of nada yoga, the yoga of sound, in which you produce sound waves and follow them with your awareness. By singing kirtan you are able to withdraw yourself from the body and your external environment. You are traveling by the jet of emotions, therefore, you do not confront the mind at all. In raja yoga you have to fight the mind, but in kirtan you bypass the mind.
