A Gold Award winner in the Nautilus Book Awards, “Kirtan: The Art and Ecstasy of Chanting” is the long-awaited book from acclaimed Western chant leader Divya Prabha. In this comprehensive guide to the how-to’s of chanting, she generously shares her personal experience and a wealth of practical tips to help chanters derive full benefit from the beautiful and sacred practice of kirtan—both as leaders and participants. The book also includes inspiration and encouragement for aspiring composers who wish to create their own chants to the Divine. Divya presents an introduction to the path of bhakti yoga, of which kirtan is a central practice, guiding readers through its ancient underpinnings and offering an insightful orientation to the various deities and energies invoked through chanting. This beautiful handbook will deepen and enrich the practice of kirtan for beginners and experienced chanters alike. Generously illustrated, with an extensive glossary of Sanskrit terms.
