Kirtan will include a Q&A.

The devotional yoga practice of ‘bhakti’ yoga includes a chant practice with the in the call-and-response format of the Divine Names, from the Indian tradition. Nina will lead a line of mantra and the group chants the same line back in response – so this is a group practice. As with many practices, we chant to slow-down our minds and open our hearts by repetition and coming back to the practice as we let the inevitable thoughts pass through our minds like clouds in the sky. And like with any practice it probably won’t solve all your problems in one night, but will offer a chance to develop your own regular practice if it resonates with you! Nina’s chants are available on her CDs, Antarayaami-Knower of All Hearts and Anubhav.

Nina Rao learned traditional chants (bhajans) from her grandfather in a village in south India when she nine years old. The chants quietly stayed with her until she rediscovered chanting with Krishna Das in New York in 1996. For many years Nina has been Krishna Das’ business manager and accompanies him musically as well. In 2007, she recorded the track ‘Nina Chalisa’ on Krishna Das’ CD “Flow of Grace ” ; January 2013 she released her debut album, “Antarayaami – Knower of All Hearts”; August 2017 her second album “Anubhav” was released. Nina regularly leads kirtan, workshops, and retreats in her hometown of Brooklyn, New York and beyond. For more information visit Talks and chants by Nina are on her YouTube channel:
