“Kirtan Clears the Mind & Revitalises the Spirit”
Repeating sacred words raises our vibration and when this is done in a group setting the effects are magnified.
Kirtan can provide several physical benefits including giving us more energy, lowering stress & anxiety, reducing blood pressure and assisting with overcoming addictions and depression.
