Kirtan Byron was developed to serve the Northern Rivers community as a place where people can find out about kirtan events in the area.
Ekendra Dasa, local organizer for Kirtan Australia and self-admitted “kirtan junkie”, was inspired to take some initiative after attending and hosting several kirtan events. Ekendra kept running into too many people who were upset about not being informed about programs despite that, at least for the events he organized, he’d run posters all over Byron and Mullum.
Kirtan Byron is non-sectarian. We appreciate the art of kirtan as practiced by all spiritual cultures of the world.
We also work with Kirtan Australia to hold kirtan events in the area. Previous gatherings have featured guests such as Vaiyasaki Das, Gaura Vani and As Kindred Spirits, The Mayapuris, Madhava Das and Amala Kirtan.
