An Evening of Bhajans (Kirtan Chanting)

October 18 @ 7:00 pm8:30 pm CDT

An Evening of Bhajans

Join Scarritt Bennett Center on the Bennett Hall porch for an evening of Bhajans!

Sound Minister Caroline Sledge, a devotee of AMMA, joins Rhythm Bird (Chrissy Kirkwood) and friends to lead us in sacred, ancient chants from India for world compassion. Singing and chanting Kirtan or Bhajans is part of the devotional practice of Bhakti yoga, which has its origins in India. The goal of this practice is to bring the chanter into balance with their own highest state of being or vibration. Singing with intention merges the chanter with the ultimate supreme, unconditional, compassionate source of love.

This event will take place Monday, October 18, at 7:00pm on the porch in front of Bennett Hall, facing 19th Avenue South (campus map). Attendees are invited to bring their own food/drink for a picnic-style gathering (note: Scarritt Bennett Center is an alcohol-free venue). This event is free and open to the public.

Come chant, sing, and dance for compassion and love for the world!
