"Once, in a holy place in the forest of Naimisharanya,
great sages headed by Shaunaka assembled to perform a thousand-year sacrifice for the satisfaction of the Lord and His devotees." —Srimad-Bhagavatam 1.1.4
Like great sages from the Vedic era gathering to uplift humanity, every summer for the last few years devotees from North America and abroad have gathered at the holy place of New Vrindaban, USA, to perform congregational chanting, kirtan, of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra.
As you might expect from the event’s name, the chanting didn’t stop for twenty-four solid hours.
Thanks to our friends at Mantralogy.com, we’re again able to present you with these great kirtan recordings of the event.
In addition to traditional musical accompaniment (harmonium, mridanga, kartals), you may also hear bass guitar, electric guitar, and the occasional trumpet blast—along with hundreds of enthusiastic voices chanting the maha-mantra.
If you enjoy these kirtans, please let your friends know about them, and just try not to sing along. You may find it impossible!
