So the second Kirtan Event will be on Saturday 16th of February from 14.00 h till 18.00 h. We will celebrate an ecstatic party with wonderful kirtaneers like Rati Manjari, Parividha prabhu and Ananda Vrindavan.  Naturally sweet Prasadam and drink will be served.

So please please dear friends. Come and get the taste of the mellows of the Maha mantra, which will bring you eternal joy and real happiness.

Dont’ forget to take your dancing shoes with you and a good mood.

What is mantra meditation/kirtan?

Srila Prabhupada about Kirtan

“In India there are sacred places where yogis go to meditate in solitude, as prescribed in Bhagavad-gita.

Traditionally, yoga cannot be executed in a public place, but insofar as kirtan—mantra-yoga, or the yoga of chanting the Hare Krishna mantra: Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare—is concerned, the more people present, the better.

When Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu was performing kirtan in India some five hundred years ago, He organized in each group sixteen people to lead the chanting, and thousands of people chanted with them.

This participation in kirtan, in the public chanting of the names and glories of God, is very possible and is actually easy in this age; but as far as the meditational process of yoga is concerned, that is very difficult.

It is specifically stated in Bhagavad-gita that to perform meditational yoga one should go to a secluded and holy place. In other words, it is necessary to leave home. In this age of overpopulation it is not always possible to find a secluded place, but this is not necessary in bhakti-yoga.

In the bhakti-yoga system there are nine different processes: hearing, chanting, remembering, serving, worshiping the Deity in the temple, praying, carrying out orders, serving Krishna as a friend and sacrificing for Him.

Out of these, sravanam kirtanam, hearing and chanting, are considered the most important.

At a public kirtan one person can chant Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare, while a group listens, and at the end of the mantra, the group can respond, and in this way there is a reciprocation of hearing and chanting.

This can easily be performed in one’s own home, with a small group of friends or with many people in a large public place.”

Over het evenement:

De Hare Krishna’s van Amsterdam zijn weer terug met hun geweldige Kirtans welke u zullen leiden naar een platform van spirituele extase. In het centrum van Amsterdam zullen we weer een Vrindavan Dhaam creeren!

Ons huidige gebouw is helaas niet geschikt voor het organiseren van een dergelijk evenement. Dankzij Krishna’s genade hebben we nu de mogelijkheid om onze Kirtan evenementen te organiseren in de studio’s van Svaha Yoga Centrum (Begijnensteeg 1, dicht bij de Kalverstraat) in Amsterdam Centrum. We zijn Svaha Yoga Centre hier zeer erkentelijk en dankbaar voor.

Het tweede Kirtan evenement zal plaatsvinden op zaterdag 16 februari van 14:00 tot 18:00 uur. We zullen een ecstatische Nieuwjaarsfeest vieren met geweldige kirtaneers zoals Rati Manjari, Parividdha prabhu en Ananda Vrindavan. Vanzelfsprekend zal ook prasadam worden geserveerd.

U bent allen van harte uitgenodigd. Komt en ontvang de smaak van de mellows van de Maha mantra, welke u eeuwige blijdschap en geluk zal brengen. Vergeet niet uw dansschoenen mee te nemen!
