Frequently Asked Questions Amsterdam Kirtan Mela:

What is Kirtan?
Kirtan is a call and response musical meditation that takes a minute to learn, and makes you feel good just as fast. The practice goes back more than 5000 years and can be practiced by anyone. You do not need to be a good singer, a practitioner of yoga, or a follower of any religion or set of beliefs to experience the power of kirtan. An open mind and your voice are all that is required.

Is this a Free Kirtan Event?
Yes. To give as many as people access to this kirtan experience we make the Tickets FREE and include Prasadam for lunchtime and dinner. However, the event is funded by Donations to cover the cost for the location, prasadam, travel cost of kirtaniers, logistics and marketing to spread the holy names of the Hare Krishna Mantra. So if you are able to make a donation as small or big you can make that will be very highly appreciated!
