Singing devotional songs or mantras can be truly a mystical and a mysterious experience. |
We sing devotional songs with deep feelings, and full faith, letting the transcendental beauty, and qualities represented within the words enter our souls.
I invite you all to join me for a Kirtan night with the mantra BABA NAM KEVALAM, happening on January 4th and February 1st.
Baba means ‘my most beloved One’; Nam means ‘name of’ and Kevalam means ‘only’. So the meaning of the mantra is: My most Beloved (Supreme Consciousness) is the only One. "Everywhere I look, in everything I feel, hear, taste, smell and see, I perceive that one Supreme Consciousness which pervades all things". In general, we can say that Baba Nam Kevalam means "Infinite Love is all there is".
Singing mantras is an ancient practice of singing a highly vibrational phrase as a method within a spiritual path. We are continually in-tuned with the object of our ideation and thoughts. We are what we think, and what we ideate! Singing a mantra that within its meaning carries the meaning of infinite love, will resonate within us with lasting internal happiness; with peace and contentment.
This Kirtan is usually accompanied by Lalita Marmika, a simple and ancient dance done with upraised arms and a gently swaying motion of the body. The movements of the dance open the heart and create a feeling of surrender and joy.
The kirtan dance is very easy to perform, but you can also sing wile seated.
Be ready because peaceful feelings will arise from within!
Thursdays, January 4th, 7:30pm
