Janmashtami Kirtan

A beautiful blend of chanting, meditation and inspirational reading in honor of Krishna and Babaji will fill this year’s Janmashtami with divine splendor.

What is Janmashtami? It is the birthday of Sri Krishna, traditionally celebrated on the 8th day of the waning moon between mid-August and mid-September. Knowing as Yogananda explained, Sri Krishna being the former incarnation of Mahavatar Babaji, this will be in loving honor to both avatars as a Janmashtami/Babaji celebration. With Nayaswami Narayan, Nayaswami Dharmadevi, Vayu Castelli and other musicians from Ananda Village.
