I recently returned from a 3 day personal kiirtan retreat at my friend’s Yoga studio. I was feeling the stress of life keeping me from thriving so I decided to unplug for a few days. Armed with a bag of brown rice, my trusty guitar and a copy of “Idea and Ideology” I left my home on an epic 3 day inner journey. I resolved to practice maximum kiirtan and meditation, do my asanas twice a day, study Baba’s Books, eat 1 simple meal a day and except for kiirtan remain silent.
For anyone who has never experienced a silent retreat I highly highly recommend. It was amazing…. to feel the veil lifted…… and realize how thin the veil really is. Baba is right here with us, within every breathe, it just takes “one step towards Him and He takes 100 steps towards us.”
Well I’ve decided to take up another 40 day Samkalpa. last time my family was away so I had determined to practice kiirtan for 3 hours per day, but this time due to my wonderful family being with me I’m resolving to practicing kiirtan for 45min per day with the intention to share with my family and friends as much as possible. Also Im resolving to write a daily blog entry and connect as many people as possible to kiirtan through sharing kiirtan. Im going to continue to share new kiirtans through audio and video.
More to come……..
