This selection of heartfelt kirtans was recorded live in the KM09 Bhajan Kutir at the ISKCON New Dwarka Temple in Los Angeles CA, USA.

These volumes are lovingly presented by the following kirtaniyas:

Volume 1: Kishori Mohan, Sudevi Dasi, Gaura Mani, Ananta Vrindavan, Vijay Krsna, Rasika Dasi & more…

Volume 2: Kalindi Dasi, Arjuna Dasa, Abhay Dasa, Visvambhar Dasa (Mayapuris), Gaura Vani (As Kindred Spirits) & more…

In ancient Sanskrit, “Kirtan” is “The sacred, joyful, and spontaneous congregational singing and dancing for the glorification of God.”

A “Bhajan Kutir” is a special place dedicated to Kirtans.

“Kuli” refers to a member of a “Community” and “Mela” means “Festive Gathering.” Combined, “Kuli Mela” tranforms into “A Celebration of Community.”

Countdown to Kulimela Australia

Countdown to Kulimela Australia

Originally posted by the ISKCON News Staff at the ISKCON News website on December 17th, 2010.

The local Australian Gurukulis are putting together a Kulimela event which will be a spiritual gathering of Gurukulis from all over the world focused on bringing everyone together, making connections and friends, inspiring and helping one another in including Krishna in their lives.

Kulimela Australia will be drug and alcohol free and will be packed with productive seminars focusing on Health and Medicine, Business and Management, Spiritual and Community Development, and Arts and Entertainment.

There will be discussions, bhajans, temple programs, japa walks, sports and various other activities. It will be held on New Govardhana and it has the support and backing of the temple management and many senior devotees and Srila Prabhupada disciples.

It is open to all devotees and Gurukulis from all over the world and will coincide with the New Govardhana Farm Festival, running from the 27th of December 2010 to the 9th of January 2011.

The first week of this will be an opportunity for the Aussies to show the guests a bit of their beautiful country and culture. There will be daily excursions to local attractions, beaches and national parks, bush walking, japa walking, bhajans, sports, prasadam and getting to know each other activities.

The second week will be broken up in to two parts: The first three days will be a Krishna culture healing music festival and the second four days will be the official Kulimela part of the festival with a full schedule of seminars, arts, spirituality and entertainment. There will be a number of local and international artists such as Gaura Vani and the Ghost Brothers.
