Kirtan is call and response singing accompanied by musical instruments such as harmonium, drums, bells and whatever other instruments people like to play!

We play kirtan together as a community. Anyone can lead the singing or play an instrument. The emphasis is on having fun and feeling the joy of singing together.

You can also offer kirtan via zoom from your home during Shambhavi’s birthday celebration. In order to lead kirtan from your home, you must have a wi-fi upload speed of at least 6 MBps. Please set your Zoom app to use “original sound.”


Regularly scheduled Satsang with Shambhavi will be back on Sunday, August 6th at 3:30pm Pacific. Shambhavi holds satsang every Sunday at 3:30pm Pacific. Kids are always welcome. Satsang is casual. Feel free to arrive and leave whenever you like.

About Shambhavi

Shambhavi Sarasvati

Shambhavi emphasizes the more explicitly devotional teachings and practices of Trika Shaivism and Dzogchen and direct knowing through encounters with the wisdom of the heart. She is also known for making complex teachings about the nature of the self and reality understandable, practical, and always relatable to everyday experience. Her teachings are grounded in her more than thirty-five years of daily personal practice and personal retreats.

Generosity is a fountain of living light at the heart of creation. Having opened your heart and recognized its identity with the heart of the divine, you want to be here giving and giving throughout your natural lifetime. This is the essence of realization.” ~Shambhavi
