News and Events

16th Annual Night of The Snake Kirtan

Saturday, May 27, 2017
7:00 PM

On the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend in 2002, we held a kirtan at Kailash Ashram. Around midnight, a beautiful milk snake suddenly appeared in the middle of our circle. The snake crawled around to everyone individually and then slithered off, never to be seen again. Truly an amazing experience which we have chosen to honor on an annual basis.

What is Kirtan?

Kirtan is the yoga practice of using music as a means of transforming consciousness. It is a tribal experience of cultivating bhava samadhi, communion through emotions. It creates a shamanic doorway between worlds, invoking beings of higher consciousness and evoking our own divinity. In kirtan there is a circle of connection with no authoritarian leader. Without performer or audience, we are free to join in samadhi and realize our shared divine identity. Bring your musical instruments. Every soul is welcome to play and sing in the Kailash Jungle Band.

What is Fire Ceremony?

A yogic fire ceremony is a practice of invocation and evocation. We invoke the presence of beings of higher consciousness, and we evoke that same higher consciousness that resides within us in potential. It is a means of clarifying intention and purifying karma. The ceremony is quite simple, effective, and very beautiful. Through mantra repetition, we generate enormous positive, healing energy, which radiates within us and throughout the surrounding environment.
