Experience the Depth of Divine Love
Chanting is an ancient technique for focusing and uplifting the mind and soul into higher states of consciousness. Swami Kriyananda writes, “Divine love is the soul’s experience of oneness with God. Kindness is the human manifestation of that love. Divine love consciously reaches out to embrace the universe, in blissful self-forgetfulness”. The chants on this recording will help you feel that through Divine love, you can see that divinity reflected in all hearts.
Love Chants features chants written by Paramhansa Yogananda, author of the spiritual classic Autobiography of a Yogi, and Swami Kriyananda, a direct disciple of Yogananda. They are performed by Ananda Kirtan, a group of singers and musicians from Ananda—the world’s largest network of yoga communities. Chanting is accompanied by guitar, harmonium, kirtals, and tabla.
"Ananda Kirtan is a collective of chanters and singers from Ananda, the world’s largest network of yoga communities. Singing pieces sung by Paramhansa Yogananda and his direct disciple Swami Kriyananda, these songs capture the exuberant joy of spiritual bliss, and can help one develop a stronger connection with the divine. Listening to this recording, you feel as if they have been dropped in the center of a lively kirtan gathering, where all those around you are immersed in the sacred energy of the moment. Besides the song, the recording also features a setting-appropriate backdrop of harmonium and tabla, with a little guitar mixed included in places. Perfect for reaching higher states of consciousness, prayer and lifting the spirits."
