Madhu Das has been practicing and teaching kirtan for many years in the bhakti-yoga tradition. His deep love of music and its vast potential for expressing and developing pure devotion has inspired him to use kirtan as a means to share this devotional treasure with seekers throughout the world. Playing throughout dozens of countries in different continents, his passion for kirtan has inspired and enlivened persons from all cultural backgrounds.
Kirtan is an ancient form of mantra meditation, a component of bhakti-yoga (the yoga of devotion), which has the power to open and purify the heart. This chanting, accompanied by musical instruments and rhythmic drumming, brings the audience to its feet in the joy of singing, clapping, and dancing with pure devotion. In its heartfelt expression kirtan can induce profound states or meditation, bliss, and esctasy.
