20th Birthday Mega-Kirtan & Chanting with “Prasada”: Love is All

Saturday 26th Jun 2021


We have so missed sharing the magic of kirtan together for so long.
You’re invited to a special celebration of the Divine by chanting Holy names and enjoying togetherness again.

This year marks Qi’s 20th birthday so this is also our Birthday party!

There will also be messages and videos from many kirtan stars who have shared this practice with us over the years.

Join us (we call ourselves Prasada meaning “sweet things” or “divine treats”) and special musical guests for an evening of blissful mantra chanting and powerful music to open your heart, find inner stillness and joy. Enjoy new chants, new faces, same inner smile!

No one needs to have a “good voice”, we are just here to serve the chant and invoke all that is mysterious and divine by chanting from our hearts.

Join Mark O’Brien and our fabulous kirtan band, musicians and singers including:
Geeti and Gyan
Radhika Priya Devi Dasa
Joan Miller
Sri Mukti
Sevadevi Glover
Clayton Frick
Emanuel Lieberfreund
Sound Samadhi
Michael McInnery
Alana Smith
Joan Miller

There will be offerings of Prasad and chai during the evening

 

Kirtan (Sanskrit mantra chanting with music) is one of the easiest and safest methods of achieving inner peace, which other methods of meditation may take years to achieve.

Kirtan is thought by many Sages to be the foremost practice in the present Kali Yuga (Material or Dark Age).Meditation doesn’t come easy for many people, but Kirtan can carry us effortlessly to a place of quiet, to stillness. Using ancient Sanskrit mantras, the kirtan calls upon sacred energies which serve to quiet the mind, remove obstacles, and bring us back to the center of our being.

There is no requirement to be able to sing at all. Simply join the energy and rhythm and see what happens!

Here’s a throwback to a recent kirtan…
