Kirtan is a form of meditative mantra music performed in many of the temples throughout Vrindavan. Some of you may know Madhava, a talented kirtan artist who travels the globe sharing his deeply devotional mantra melodies.
Madhava always spends the sacred month of Kartik in Vrindavan. Every evening just before sunset, Madhava sits down under a tree beside a rajasthani gazebo and places his specially designed harmonium on his knee. Here in this tranquil setting, he chooses not to use a microphone. Accompanied only by a drum and one pair of brass cymbals, he closes his eyes and begins to chant.
Within moments many people join him.
The sun slowly sets. The gazebo lights up. Madhava keeps chanting.
"Chant a little louder!", he says as he himself deepens his focus on the mantra.
The group steadily swells. The kirtan builds and everyone present temporarily transcends life as we know it.
