How to practice Yoga Kirtan

1 The space where Kirtan is practiced ought to be quiet and free from clutter, have fresh air and aromatic.

2 When singing focus on the breath and the vibration of the sounds on the body.

3 Feel the emotion of the vibration coming from the body.

4 Feel the effect of the sounds of the dieties on the chakras or energy centres as you sing and allow the diety to flow freely with via the sound. For example Shiva will enter via the stomach region chakra and vibrate  within.

5 Allow the feelings and joy from from the lower chakras flow up the body into the heart and head region.

6 After singing sit quietly for some time and allow the prana to open the heart and flow freely throughout the mind and body.

7 Musicians ought to play for the music not oneself. Play as a spiritual practice, become an instrument of the sound in order to facilitate the expression of the love and joy within the sound of the bajaan.
