Shiva Lila:

Straight from the Hridaya Hermitage in Maine, experience what these kirtan wallahs do every day for devotional practice in their ashram home. With a powerful combination of energetic drumming and singing, Shiva Lila changes the energy of every space they enter with their music, bringing bodies alive and joy to the faces of those who join to sing with them.

From the western mountains of Maine, these Yogis, Bhagavan Das, Gopala and Uma will bring us to a different world of bliss!
