AUDIO: Kirtan at Ananda Ashram, New York
New York, 2008
I was contemplating the great changes in my life on July 27th, 2008, the 6-year anniversary evening of my arrival at Ananda Ashram /Yoga Society of New York. I opened my eyes to this celestial view from my window with the deer lying down and a double rainbow over the Saraswati Lake. It inspired me to chant many more names of Lord Shiva.
This chant is an invocation to Lord Shiva as Nataraja, the Cosmic Dancer. Dancing in the circle of fire, on our ignorance, the aspect of the one God called Lord Shiva, the transformer & renovator, King of Yogis, helps us destroy our unwanted habits and tendencies, and journey towards purity.
