A beautiful September kirtan

We assembled again for our first kirtan after the summer, as the impending autumnal equinox approached. It was a glorious sunny day, so much so that we had to close the curtains to avoid squinting throughout our session.

Gopal spoke about beauty in meditation and how this beauty is an ever-present and eternal reality which we can tap into.

Without further ado, here are the kirtans and the talks:

An invocation by Meru, and her chanting of the first mantra:

govinda jaya jaya gopala jaya jaya
radha-ramana-hari govinda jaya jaya
govinda govinda govinda govinda
gopala gopala gopala gopala

Talk 1.

Gopal chanting:

hari haraye namah krishna yadavaya namah
yadavaya madhavaaya kesavaya namah

gopala govinda rama shri-madhusudana
giridhari gopinatha madana-mohana

Talk 2.

Rasasthali chanting:

hare krishna hare krishna
krishna krishna hare hare
hare rama hare rama
rama rama hare hare

Talk 3.
