Annual Bhakti Immersion Weekend with Shyamdas at Ananda Ashram

Radhe Radhe! If you are in the New York area don’t miss this intimate devotional retreat at the serene Ananda Ashram. I consider Ananda to be my home-ashram, where I have been visiting and leading programs for decades. We will have plenty of time and the lovely space to explore bhakti teachings, stories, mantras, songs, and more. anandaashram.org

Quotes

The Ashta Chhap poets sang in Shri Nathji’s temple. Their poetry depicts a day in the life of Shri Krishna: His play with His family and friends, as well as His love sports with the Gopis. Praises include descriptions of Shri Krishna getting up in the morning, bathing and eating, as well as poems of supplication, in which the poets reveal the greatness of the Blessed Lord, their guru, and fellow practitioners. These poems are sung in ragas which vary by season as well as by the time of day. This style of singing praises which depict the Lila play of Shri Krishna and are sung directly to Him, is called “Lila kirtan.” — Krishna’s Inner Circle: The Ashta Chaap Poets
