Acerca de mí:
I am from New Zealand, although I havn't lived there for most of my life. My father brought me to Krishna consciousness when I was a small child. I studied at gurukulas in New Govardhana, Australia; as well as Vrindavana and Mayapur, India. I left school at age 15 and started traveling with Indradyumna Maharaja as his assistant. In that role I was based in Europe for 18 years. In 2008 I moved back to New Zealand where I am currently preaching and doing a PhD. I continue to travel with Indradyumna Maharaja for part of the year.

"I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration, I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated, and a person is humanized or de-humanized. If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming." —Goethe
Swaying people, some in yoga posture with closed eyes and beatific smiles; others dancing, clapping, or playing exotic instruments: hand drums, cymbals, and an organ like harmonium. All are singing repetitive sacred Sanskrit chants in response to the calls of a lead singer. This is kirtan yoga.

Kirtan is the heart of yoga – which aims at linking with the Supreme Divine. While yoga involves exercises that bestow physical and mental fitness, kirtan involves call and response singing that awakens emotions of joy and love.

Kirtan yoga is becoming increasingly popular at yoga studios and even some churches around the world. On January 19th, the day before US President Obama’s inauguration, 400 enthusiasts assembled at Washington D.C.’s Church of the Holy City, within view of the White House, to user in a new epoch of hope and change with a kirtan festival called Chanting for Change. At Integral Yoga in New York City, the Friday-night kirtan sometimes attracts 400 people for performances by kirtan stars like Jai Uttal, Krishna Das, or Wah!. Last September 700 enthusiasts came to see Krishna Das perform at the Jivamukta Yoga School in Manhattan, setting a record for kirtan at the centre.

According the ancient yoga texts, kirtan yoga awakens consciousness of the chanter’s original nature as a spiritual being. The body, according to these texts, is an outer covering for the soul within – the real person. Souls are sentient, conscious of their environment and inner feelings. Matter, in contrast, is unconscious. Souls are also eternal. People experience the pain of death simply due to identifying with the body as the self. And the soul’s nature is to be full of joy. Fluctuating moods of happiness and distress are again due to identification with matter as the self. Dr Ian Stevenson’s three decades of research into children’s past life memories provides significant scientific evidence for the existence of a spiritual soul transmigrating in this world from one body to another [1].

The yoga texts recommend kirtan yoga as the most effective means for penetrating the coverings of material identification, awakening the soul’s blissful spiritual nature, and reconnecting with the Supreme Divine. Such reawakening ends the cycle of birth and death, returning the successful yogi to the spiritual world. There the Supreme Divine is glorified with joyous singing and dancing – indicating that kirtan yoga is an eternal spiritual principle. In this world, such glorification has been a part of humanity’s earliest civilisations.

Although kirtan yoga is an eternal spiritual principle, it was the spiritual reformer Caitanya (1486-1533) who popularised kirtan yoga, awakening all of India with his ecstatic singing and dancing. Caitanya gave particular emphasis to the Hare Krishna maha-mantra (literally the greatest of mantra chants), which is a selfless prayer of divine love as opposed to a prayer for material gain or spiritual emancipation.

Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada introduced kirtana yoga to the West, leading a group of singers and dancers under a tree in New York’s Tompkins Square Park through the summer of 1965. Today researchers are even studying the effects of chanting in their laboratories. Promising results indicate that kirtan yoga reduces symptoms of stress and depression, while increasing the experienced happiness and wellbeing of regular practitioners [2-4].

Sara Eckel, a reporter for the New York Times, describes a first time participant’s response after a two-hour kirtan yoga session: ‘Mrs. Breighner’s face glowed liked she had had a massage, “I didn’t realize it would be so energizing and that the chanting would be so rich,” she said’ [5].

Lord, make me an instrument in your peace
Where there is hatred,
Let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is error, truth;
Where there is doubt, faith'
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.
Love, pardon, truth, faith, hope, light, and joy.

Oh Divine Master grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled

As to console;
To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved, as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive.

It is in pardoning that we are pardoned.
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal light.

Dear Sri Prahlad Prabhu,

Please accept my humble obeisanes.

All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

Dear Prallad Prabhu. I apologice that I still return to this issue of St. Francis. I just concluded that I do not know anything about rasas etc, so I do not know how St. Francis eventually served Lord. I look rasas from the material point of view, and from that point of view St. Francis was very advanced. He taught that: we are the fiancees of the Lord when our soul is united in holy spirit with the Lord. We are His brothers when we act under His will. We are His mothers when we carry Him in our heart and body with pure and sincere conscience, and when we give birth to Him by our holy deeds that will work as a light also for others. So, that is what I meant by rasas. Not anything more special. I also feel that St. Francis was quite a pure devotees because he fullfilled many of the criterias of 26 qualities of a pure devotee. ...
