Kirtan & Chanting
MAHA
Meaning "Great" in sanskrit.

MANTRA
A sacred utterance, a numinous sound, a syllable, word or group of words in Sanskrit that have psychological and spiritual powers.  Also considered a sacred chant for deliverance.

The word "OM" is considered the most basic sacred sound of all mantras.
The earliest mantras were composed in Vedic Sanskrit by Hindus and believe to have existed before mankind, while some scholars consider mantras to be older than 1000 B.C.  Vedic Mantras are considered a vibration of sound that cleanses the mind, freeing it from anxiety and illusion.

MAHA MANTRA
"Hare Krishna Hare Krishna
Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
Hare Rama Hare Rama
Rama Rama Hare Hare"

Vedic literature considers the above mantra to be the greatest and most transcendent for this current age, a mantra that anyone and everyone can chant, regardless of race, religion, creed, nationality, age, color, gender. And just as the best things in life - like air, sunlight and love - are free, so is the Maha Mantra.  There is no enrollment fee, monthly payment or secret initiation needed.

Wherever you are, whatever you do, gently try chanting the mantra and gradually the mantra will spread sublime bliss in your life.

KIRTAN

Kirtan (meaning "narrating, reciting, telling, describing" of an idea or story), with Vedic roots, is a call-and-response style song or chant, set to music, wherein multiple singers recite or describe a legend, or express loving devotion to a deity, or discuss spiritual ideas.
Many Kirtan performances are structured to engage the audience where they either repeat the chant, or reply to the call of the singer.

 A Kirtan performance includes an accompaniment of regionally popular musical instruments, such as the harmonium, the veena or ektara (forms of string instruments), the tabla (one-sided drums), the mrdanga or pakhawaj (two-sided drum), flute (forms of woodwind instruments), and karatalas or talas (cymbals).

Yoga centers report an increase in attendance at kirtan; according to Pure Music’s Frank Goodman in conversation with Krishna Das in 2006, kirtan has taken on a wider popularity.
