What is Kirtan?Kirtan is a musical prayer, a call and response connection with the Divine through sound. The word mantra is a Sanskrit word composed of ‘Mana’ (the mind) and ‘Trayate’ (to transcend).
Therefore mantra refers to an ancient word or sound which helps the mind to reach a higher consciousness. These days it’s become popular to call anything which is repeated over and over as a ‘mantra’. But a real mantra is a powerful sound vibration, sometimes compared to a key that unlocks the heart and links us with an eternal, unchanging truth – a celebration of the relationship between the soul and the source. When mantra is accompanied by music it is known as Kirtan.
