Kitchari Kirtan (KK) organizers of Cambridge, MA, hosted their monthly open mic Sankirtan program at the residence of Shri. Tamal Krisna Das and Smt. Shakti Mata Ji in the Harvard Square vicinity on Friday, Mar 15, 2019 from 7:00pm to 10:00pm. A hall full of Kirtan lovers gathered and sang the beautiful Bhajans with utmost devotion and spiritual fervor.

Kirtan lovers were warmly welcomed at the main door by the friendly greeters and offered them the homemade Prasadam - Kitchari, a savory meal of rice and beans, and chai-tea to enjoy with open hearts and meet with others Kirtan lovers, musicians and singers and expand their spiritual networks.  The energy of this Kitchari Kirtan community is not only helping musicians and singers to develop relationships but also mutually enhance their primary projects, visions, and aims. Gratitude was outpouring from the Kirtan lovers for the grace of this community event and sharing this precious quality with them.

Kitchari Kirtan inspires a group of musicians and friends who enjoy raising their collective voices together in singing primarily the names Hindu Gods and Goddesses and Sanskrit mantras along with other devotional songs. Many of the devotional songs at KK are done in a call and responsive fashion where the Kirtan lovers can participate and experience the purifying pleasure of the chanting and dancing. There are no hard and fast rules for chanting besides opening their hearts and letting their souls reach out to the divine power. The sacred sound vibrations that are released from the chanting of mantras produce love and connect everything and everyone of us in the spiritual world.

Shri. Tamal Krisna Das, Shri. Bill Brockmeyer, Shri. Sanjay Das (Suavek Rucinski), Smt. Kaeza Fearn and Smt. Geetha Patil sang devotional Bhajans and Shri. Jerry Leake and Shri. Tamal Krisna Das played tabla and guitar respectively and made the chanting session much more beautiful and therapeutic. Shri Tamal Krisna Das thanked everyone for making their Sankirtan program an extra creative and positive one.

‘I love to participate in the Kitchari Kirtan programs since this place is filled with friendly and spiritual environment and unconsciously fulfills our collective desires to reach out to the heavenly power and cleans our souls’ – said one of the participants.
