The Bhaktas is a spiritual musical project focusing on a place where electronic music and Mantra meet.
Blending traditional Indian chants and Bhajans with a contemporary style, they are opening a new way of artful cosmic meditation through the power of electronic music.
Their Sanskrit powered, electro-infused sound is inspired by the yogic teachings of Ananda Marga and their goal is to spread love and devotion all around the world!
Kirtan is the singing of a mantra aloud while ideating on the Supreme Being. It inculcates the feeling of bliss and prepares the mind for meditation, because in performing it all the motor and sensory organs are engaged and directed towards the Supreme.
It can be done anywhere, any time, but the best time is just before meditation.
Chanting the mantra out loud before meditation is called "kirtan." It is extremely beneficial and makes meditation much easier. Its a sort of a halfway step. The mind stays focused only on the mantra, but all the senses are not focused inwardly--we are still singing and listening. It helps slow breathing (through singing), helps fix the mantra in the mind, and on a subtler level, raises the vibration in the room.
