“Why Govinda?” – Kirtan w/ Radha Govinda Crew
Radha Govinda Crew - Acyuta, Ananta, Gopal, Govinda, Keshav, Gauri Priya, Vasudev, Prema, & etc....
Ananta will speak about 20minutes on “WHY GOVINDA?”, sharing some of his realizations on Govinda and kirtan and giving some context for the practice. We will then JUST DO KIRTAN for a few hours.
Allow your ears to relish in the nectar of sweet voices, your mind to OPEN against the rhythmic clicks of Acyuta’s kartals (hand cymbals), your heart to BEAT & PULSE to the deep pounding of the MRIDUNGA drum…. On top of this, your entire being will be washed into the mood of BHAKTI, hearing why we are chanting, drinking in the potency of the HOLY NAME.
