Website Intro

BhaktiFest 2014 pic2This page summarizes the information and resources on this website.  Please note that some of the top navigation links have drop-down menus with addition selections but are also active pages in their own right.  (For instance, to see upcoming events, click on the Calendar link itself, not on the drop-down choices, which are there to provide links to additional info related to the Calendar.)

The 'Bliss' link focuses on my 'stunningly beautiful for the ear and for the soul' Bliss of Kirtan album, with sub-pages that provide more info on the album. (More Track Info and Background on the Tracks)

The Live Recordings link is a 'landing page' for live recordings from the ongoing kirtan gatherings that we've been holding weekly in Sedona, AZ, for over 10 years.  It gives you an introduction to the recordings and the sub-pages on which the audio players for the recordings reside. (Ganesh and Devi Chants / Krishna and Rama (and Their Beloveds) Chants / Shiva and 'Other' Chants)

As noted above, the Calendar link itself lists upcoming events (and also past ones). The Ongoing Kirtan in Sedona sub-page gives more information about these regular weekly kirtan programs.

The Resources page itself really just functions as a landing page with links to important additional resources that are also reached directly through the sub-pages. The Bliss of Kirtan Music Book sub-page introduces you to my book of chant compositions in Western music notation, downloadable for free as a PDF. There is now a second version of the book that has an alternative notation for people that don't read standard Western notation.  The 54 Quotes on Chanting sub-page presents an extensive collection of 54 inspirational quotes from enlightened beings and spiritual teachers (and one from the Rig Veda) on the importance, potency and benefits of chanting in its many forms.  They can be viewed either as a slideshow or individually.  Finally, the About Kirtan sub-page provides some general information about kirtan as a devotional spiritual practice.

The Bio link is self-explanatory.  The Video link presents embedded playlists of videos from my YouTube channel, appropriately categorized from events, or live kirtan in general, Bliss of Kirtan tracks, and my video series on my chant compositions.

The Store link provides links to purchase the Bliss of Kirtan album from either CDBaby (CD or download) or Bandcamp (download only) and to purchase from me via Paypal any of 6 kirtan-lover bumper stickers I've designed and had printed up (U.S. customers only for bumper stickers).

The Contact page provides my email address. I'd love to hear from you about your experiences of the album or if you'd like to invite me to come do kirtan in your area or you're coming to Sedona and have any questions about our kirtan, etc.
