Kirtan is a devotional practice no matter what spiritual path or religion you seek. Experiencing kirtan is all about connection to spirit; whatever spirit means to you. Kirtan stems from Bhakti tradition. Bhakti = devotion. The Hindu Goddess Saraswati is attributed with being the founder of Kirtan, for she is the goddess of learning, knowledge, music, and the arts. Saraswait sails down the ganges siting upon her white swan, clad in a pure white saree. The beginning notes of the Indian scale are named in her honor: Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Da Ni Sa.
