Kirtan Programs


Kirtan, the devotional singing of shabads (passages from the Guru Granth Sahib), is offered daily at the ashram.  This sacred sound current uplifts the hearts and minds of all who hear it.  Kirtan programs feature musicians from the Guru Ram Das Ashram community and guest ragis visiting from the various gurdwaras of Southern California as well as other parts of the world.  Everyone is welcome to visit the ashram to experience music that connects the soul to the divine.
