Kiirtan is a musical spiritual practice. An ancient form, it was popularised by Caetanya Mahaprabuhu, the mediaeval Indian saint. It is used both as a personal communication with the Supreme and as an uplifting collective activity. Still today, Kiirtan can open the door to musical and spiritual pleasures for you and your companions.
The unique quality of Kiirtan is that unlike other forms of music, which are played in order to satisfy the aesthetic sense of the artist, Kiirtan's first goal is to be pleasing to the Supreme Entity. Keeping this in mind while singing is what gives Kiirtan its special "supra-aesthetic" qualities. Kiirtan then becomes a vehicle to carry our thoughts and feelins higher.
