As we head to the 9th annual Open Your Heart in Paradise Retreat in Maui, Hawaii, we are happy to offer you Sri Ram Kirtan Sadhana that captures one of our favorite parts of the 5-day retreat.
We made this professional audio track live during the Ram Dass mala ceremony at last year’s gathering in December 2015. During this session, each retreatant greets Ram Dass personally and receives a mala with a thread from Maharaj-ji Neem Karoli Baba’s blanket, at the altar that graces the retreat.
The chanting holds this sacred space for all and seals the teachings received during the retreat into everyones wide open hearts.
During this session and while the greeting is happening, Krishna Das and Nina Rao lead the group in chanting the mantra ‘Sri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram’ accompanied musically by the band. At the end arti (waving sacred lamp lights) is offered to the images of all the saints and deities presiding over the retreat. It starts with Krishna Das singing Hanuman Stawan and if you listen carefully you will hear the arti bell!
The cost is $4 for this 1 hour 38 minute track. You can stream it on our website or download it to have with you. Click the image below for a preview and additional information about this new Sadhana.
We hope that this continuous chanting of the sacred mantra will help you to deepen your own chanting practice at home; your car; wherever; or be the sound track for your asana practice.
You can purchase you Sri Ram Kirtan Sadhana in our online shop.
