Kirtan Scotland (formerly known as Scotland Kirtan) has been broadening the horizon of Kirtan yoga (Mantras with Music) in Scotland since 2009. The Kirtan Scotland band uses an eclectic blend of both traditional and modern instruments and engage eastern and western melodies to form a wide variety from meditative to energetic.
Chanting has been practiced for thousands of years by diverse cultures and is now undergoing a renaissance in the west. More than just music group chanting is a contemplative practice. It promotes community, peace and conscious living. Kirtan is one of the fastest growing forms of meditation in the world and for the 1st time it was performed at the Grammy awards in 2013. The Kirtan band “Bhakti without Borders” has been nominated for a Grammy in 2016. It is fun, it feels good, and brings one into a place of peace, well-being and blissful joy.
Kirtan Scotland have been long time supporters of the 108 Sun Salutations event. You can find out more about them here.
