Spiritual traditions have long used song, music, and sound vibration as a method of prayer to enter the realm of the divine. In the traditional path of yoga, this practice is called KIRTAN – or devotional chanting. Through repetitously chanting the names of God/Goddess from ancient India, Govind Das will guide you on a musical meditation and yogic ritual deep into the essence of Bhakti—the yoga of the Heart, the yoga of Love and Devotion. Through the grace of his teachers, Govind Das has uniquely melded ancient Indian mantras with heart-opening melodies, playing traditional Indian instruments. Kirtan is commonly described as a “jewel of a spiritual practice” because of its joyful, open-hearted, meditative, and communal feeling. Govind Das’s music is been described as a trance inducing mandala where the eyes close, voices and hearts open, and meditation, art, and prayer merge together as One.

“Govind Das’s kirtan flows like a waterfall of raw emotion, their sweetness and passion permeating every chant.” -JAI UTTAL

About Govind Das: In the tradition of “Bhakti/Devotion” Ira Jeffrey Rosen was given his spiritual name- Govind Das or simply which means “servant of the Divine”. His path of service and devotion is at the root of his spiritual life- to serve the Love and Spirit that lives in the hearts of all. It is from this place that his teachings and music flow. He is the owner/director of BHAKTI YOGA SHALA, an innovative bhakti-based yoga studio in Santa Monica , California Govind Das teaches Bhakti Yoga and Kirtan classes, workshops, and retreats at yoga studios, festivals, and retreat centers around the globe.
