Slow and steady wins the race! Only $12,000 $5,221 more is needed to keep alive and vibrant for the next six months. A big THANK YOU to those who've contributed to our Fall Fundraiser so far. If everyone gave a few dollars (say, between five and fifty) we could get rid of this banner and go back to doing what we love most: helping people all over the Internet discover Krishna. If you give $25 or more, we'll email you a gift of the Bhagavad-gita audio book. How about that? Click here to donate.


Kirtan is Sanskrit for “chant” or “glorify”—mainly, to glorify God and chant His names. God has many names—in many languages—which are all spiritual. “Spiritual” means God and His names are the same, so saying “Krishna” means Krishna is present.

Whole Lotta Chanting Going On

In God’s presence, anxieties subside, we feel like the spiritual beings we really are, and we feel happy. Find out for yourself: kirtan follows a “call-and-response” format. The kirtan leader chants—in most cases the Hare Krishna mantra—

Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare,
Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare

and everyone else responds.
