The Kundalini Yoga tradition speaks of a call to the Divine that awakens “the Original Light of the soul.” Snatam Kaur is an American-born Kirtan singer raised in the Sikh and Kundalini Yoga traditions. She is internationally renowned for her ability to transform traditional chants into a transcendent experience for all who hear her. I have been following her and her music for over 20 years, and she has made a tremendous impact on my yogic journey to where I am today as a practicing Bhakti Yogini. Bhakti Yoga is the yoga of devotion, and mantra and chanting are a large part of the practice, as one realizes and embodies our Oneness with the Divine – whether you call it God, Universe, Higher Self, Source, Divine Mother, etc.
It has been a dream of mine to hear Snatam Kaur live in concert. That dream was realized on October 29, when she came to Unity Church here in Houston to perform. I’m sure I was one of the first tickets sold! Exercising my Divine Will and Loving Action, I was actually able to meet with her in person and chat briefly about my gratitude for her and her influence on so many. It was truly a “bucket list” happening for me, and I continue to use that experience to move into my next level of consciousness.
