Kirtan is a call-and-response method of song used to connect with the divine and generate a blissful, peaceful state.
In a recent interview on NewWorldKirtan.com, kirtan singer Jai Uttal told Kitzie Stern:
Music opens up the emotions. It opens up the heart. When we get into kirtan I feel like it amplifies that aspect, you know, exponentially. Mantras, particularly the nama mantras, the names that we sing in kirtan...these names are considered another manifestation of the deities. The mantras have incredibly vast power to transform us.
