First Wednesday Kirtan
The Kashi Nivas Shiva Meditation Ashram offers two hours of kirtan, from 7pm - 9pm, on the first Wednesday of each month. We facilitate free, donation-based, public kirtan events as a service to our local and global communities. This group of volunteer musicians and singers engage in live call and response chanting as a devotional spiritual practice. Our hope is to provide an ongoing opportunity to invite people from all backgrounds to share in the experience.
The evening starts with group chanting of sacred Vedic and Upanishad mantras, then continues with a variety of guest musicians and vocalists who create a sacred space for centering, healing, and devotional communion. We then conclude with a brief silent meditation and social time. Please contact us if you would like to volunteer your services for this monthly community program. We'd love to have you join us!
