Songs of Love and Heart
When the mind is intent on singing, the worries and stress are released and the dramas of life subside. We feel the presence of the higher existence and thin out ego-based mindsets.
Kirtan is singing and praising to the higher existence with devotion (bhava), love (prema), and faith (shraddha) and in return it reveals who we are, loving and joyful beings. Such singing has a benign effect on physical, mental, emotional and even spiritual bodies. It is an excellent way of soothing the nerves and redirect the emotions to a positive and spiritual awareness. It is the way to control the mind, regulate the mood, and elevate the spirit.
Kirtan opens heart, fills the heart with purity, generates harmony and divine unconditional pure love, and enables us to realize the infinite nature of our existence.During Kirtan, the awareness of love and joy (sattva) flows to our mind and body. It gives us strength to face difficult time and help us copy with drama and trauma in life.
There is infinite power (Shakti) in singing Kirtan. It removes all impurities from the mind. It becomes the direct cause for the realization of high perfection in universe consciousness.
The kirtan, a form of sweet divine music melts the heart. If there is anything in this world can change the aching heart of a person in a very short period of time, it would be music, especially Kirtan singing glories to our true existence. It direct our sensual enjoyment and dramas of life towards higher existence.
