Steven Rosen (Satyaraja Dasa)
Kirtan and yoga are spiritual practices that originated in the mystic East. In fact, kirtan - singing for the Divine - is a form of yoga that engages the heart, evoking emotion and joy. The Yoga of Kirtan: Conversations on the Sacred Art of Chanting will introduce readers to this blissful yogic tradition.
Here we learn of kirtan's history and origins, its different musical forms, and the instruments used in its performance. In The Yoga of Kirtan, we hear the voices of kirtan yogis from ages past. They reach out to us through the hearts and minds of their present-day representatives, such as Krishna Dasa, Jai Uttal, Vaiyasaki Dasa, Ragani, and David Newman, among others.
Through the insights of twenty-one modern-day chanters, we get a peek into the ecstasy of the chanting process. By allowing us to eavesdrop on their intimate conversations with Vaishnava scholar Steven Rosen, they unlock the mysteries of this age-old yogic tradition, helping us to see why chanting is indeed yoga and how easy and pleasurable it is to perform.
An audio CD with over 70 minutes of kirtan is included.
Softbound, 483 pages, twenty-one interviews, appendices, bibliography, 5.5" x 8.5".
