KIIRTAN

On 24 May 1979 evening, Rotterdam, THE NETHERLANDS, BA’BA’ gave His Discourse saying about Kiirtan, ” Everywhere you are with Parama Puruśa, and never in this Universe, nowhere in this Universe, are you alone. So you are never helpless. Wherever you may be, do your Kiirtana, “Bábá Nám Kevalam.” HE is with you. You are never alone. Your are never weak. You are never helpless.”

9.  Sa’dhana saha’yakam – Kiirtan enhances in our Sadhana/Intuitional practice

When a large number of devotees do kiirtan, then not only their physical force is concentrated, but also their collective psychic power, getting inspiration from Parama Purus’a, starts to flow in a single channel. Thus there is not only a concentration of physical force, but of psychic force as well;and this concentrated physical and psychic force removes the accumulated sorrows and miseries of the material or mundane world. — Shrii P.R.Sarkar

And Párvatii, the spouse of Shiva, invented Lalita Mármika, which means “Voice of the Inner spirit”. The dance used for kiirtana is Lalita mármika. It represents the inner voice of the spiritual aspirant. The main thing in Lalita Mármika is the expression through mudrá. In táńd́ava there is no mudrá…..Lalita is to be used during kiirtana. It is the only dance which is universally accepted as the best dance for kiirtana.

Kiirtan is good for the spiritual aspirant and it should be always encouraged. Its spiritual wave creates a spiritual hunger; it makes the aspirant dance in ecstasy and throb in vitality. Let you enjoy that spiritual bliss.
