Are You Tired of playing the Same Kiirtans and longing to develop your musical potential 
but don't Know how? 
Together we are unravelling the beauty and spiritual power of kiirtan!...  
The first time I saw a Rarhi Kiirtan in Rarh in 2000, the hair on my body stood on end, tears rolled down my face. I had never experienced anything like it before and afterwards I realised oh, this is what Baba means by ‘supra aesthetic science’. I knew I had to delve into it and understand how did it work? How could I make it happen in my kiirtan? So I spent years researching the kiirtan of Rarh unravelling the never before exposed kiirtan structures and strategies hidden beneath this ecstatic experience. Each week we will delve deeply into some significant kiirtans to gain a deep understanding of its mechanics, aesthetics and ideation so that we can apply that knowledge to our own kiirtan.  .  
The Kiirtan Academy has arisen out of a need kiirtaniyas have to develop our kiirtan skills and knowledge, to grow our resources and networks, find support and delve deeply into the science and supra aesthetics of kiirtan. In this way we can transform our kiirtan and our selves in the process. In the Kiirtan Academy that musical potential lying hidden within each of us, can be developed and expressed in an atmosphere of mutual love and respect. 

This new Kiirtan course can provide you with the tools you need to expand your knowledge, musical skills, understanding and devotion... To Feel More Bliss and in the Divine Flow!

"Whatever worldly difficulties might obstruct your path your best positive or auxiliary force is kiirtana"...Shrii Shrii Anandamurtiji
