Gaura Vani & As Kindred Spirits in Brisbane

Posted on Posted in Latest
Dear Friends,
Krishne matir astu – may your mind be directed to the lotus feet of Sri Krishna.
Gaura Vani & As Kindred Spirits (Jahnavi and Shree Shyam) return to Brisbane for the weekend of January 14 – 16, 2011. Jai Uttal calls As Kindred Spirits “simply the best kirtan band in the west”.
Friday January 14: Gaura Vani and As Kindred Spirits present a kirtan concert at Atma Yoga (99 Elizabeth St, Level 1, opp. Govindas) on Friday January 14. Tickets for the concert are $20 presale, $25 on the night. This is a wonderful opportunity to invite friends, family, and work colleagues to experience the magic of Gaura Vani’s kirtan and his warm and inviting presentation of Krishna Consciousness. For the price of a trip to the movies you can enjoy two hours of spiritually uplifting kirtan; and help to financially support these artists, who are all second generation devotees.
Saturday January 15: Gaura Vani & As Kindred Spirits are participating in Maha Kirtan 9 at the Brisbane ISKCON temple. The Maha Kirtan runs from 12 midday to 8pm at night. Entry is by donation. Again, this is a wonderful opportunity to support these artists in their full-time work presenting Krishna kirtan around the world.

Sunday January 16: Gaura Vani & As Kindred Spirits present an interactive kirtan workshop for those who are leading, or want to lead kirtan. The workshop is four hours, from 1pm – 5pm. Cost of the workshop is $40 / $20 concession. Kirtan workshop attendees who register and pay in full before Friday January 14 receive a complimentary ticket to the Friday night kirtan.
Gaura Vani and As Kindred Spirits rely on the financial support of patrons to continue to do this service full-time. Please support their work by contributing through one or more of these avenues. Even if you cannot come to the Friday night kirtan concert, consider making a donation by buying tickets and gifting them to friends and family; and whatever you do, find some time to come and chant with them while they are here in Brisbane. This is a wonderful opportunity to go deeper into congregational chanting and gain renewed inspiration and enthusiasm in Krishna Consciousness. You will not be disappointed, unless you miss it!
To purchase tickets for the Friday night kirtan concert and for the kirtan workshop, please see Prema Yogi das at the Saturday night program at the temple, or contact him on 0450 738 971.
