Kirtan Chanting

Paramahansa Yogananda brought India's art of devotional chanting to the West, introducing thousands to the experience of chanting together in devotion to God. At New York City's famed Carnegie Hall in April of 1926, the great master taught the beloved chant "O God Beautiful" to the large audience that packed the hall. He later recounted:

"For one hour and twenty-five minutes, the thousands of voices of the entire audience a divine atmosphere of joyous praise....The next day many men and women testified to the God-perception and the healing of body, mind, and soul that had taken place during the sacred chanting, and numerous requests came in to repeat the song at other services."

 Paramahansa Yogananda on the Power of Devotional Chanting

In these recordings, several thousand voices join Self-Realization Fellowship monastics. Included are some of Paramahansa Yogananda's original compositions and several bhajans (devotional songs) from India, accompanied by traditional Indian instruments.

(Note on the two bhajans that can be listened to below: "Satchidananda Guru" is a tribute sung by SRF/YSS disciples to Paramahansa Yogananda as their satguru—one who has attained union with Spirit as ever-existing, ever-conscious, ever-new Bliss — Satchidananda — and is sent by God to usher others from the confines of delusion into the realization of their own soul-oneness with the ever-blissful Spirit.  "He Bhagavan" means "O Lord.")
