Kirtan & Meditation

Kirtan with Gitanjali: Songs for God

Chanting the names of God purifies the heart and mind, frees us from restless thoughts and prepares us for God communion. Devotional chants led by Yogacharya O'Brian with the Kirtan band, Gitanjali, support participants in an unforgettable experience of the soul's joy. Members of Gitanjali include Amarnath Michael Scott, Suzanne Mira Samson, Janet Lalor, David Rhodes, David Bick-Maurischat, and Andrew Foehner. Newcomers are welcome; song words provided. Free Will Offering. 

Kirtan at CSE is offered regularly. Visit our calendar for dates.

When a man "drinks" God divine intoxication fills him. Sing the Lord's Name with all your heart. No more call to the beloved with dry voice and absent-minded prayer; drink His Name with all fervor of your soul; be intoxicated with His Name.

- Paramahansa Yogananda
