It is such a sweet, relevant and engaging experience to listen to this podcast, and I think it can be said for any kirtan practitioner, or aspirant who is serious about taking their practice further.
The transitions of this podcast are so very well done — soft and easy on the ears, even as I go through my day; actually, it feels like my day *flows* much better with this daily dose of inspiration.
The response to commentary feature, in the beginning of the episode, is so very nicely interwoven and very encouraging to know that my feedback, or questions will be well-received in an intelligent way, and be sincerely responded to.
I am looking forward to becoming more a part of this community and to learn of which other events and invitations are spreading!
