The yuga-dharma for this age is kirtanad eva krsnasya (Bhag. 12.3.51): kirtan of Krishna’s holy names. Thus it is important and relevant to teach people (in ISKCON and society in general) about kirtan.
Over a period of three months the course will be facilitated by qualified kirtaniyas. The course covers the history, theory and practice of kirtan (singing, harmonium, karatals and mrdanga).
The Kirtan Course prepares students for a genuine kirtan experience, which they can have again and again and also impart to others.
We have decided to launch the Kirtan Course next summer (2014), not this summer. We are sorry for any inconvenience.
What's the reason? We decided to offer a high quality and very well developed course, which takes extra time to design. Because more teachers are now on board, we will do extensive research on the kirtan tradition. We need one more year to prepare. In our course we want to bring you the best information and experience available on kirtan.
We humbly request you to await more detailed information and give us your blessings to create something unique.
Wishing you all the best and lots of spiritual strength,
