Bharati & Dinesh

Chanting for Peace

Quitening the mind and opening the heart with sacred chant and songs of peace and devotion.

About Bharati & Dinesh

Bharati and Dinesh have been singing, chanting and sharing the path of devotion with our local community for the past sixteen years. We are lucky to live a beautiful part of the Cotswolds, near Stroud, where people love to sing and chant.

Our music is a combination of Hindu, Buddhist, Sikh and English mantras, songs and chants, accompanied by harmonium, guitar and tabla or dholak (Indian drum).

Since holding our first satsang evening in our home in 2006 we have shared regular devotional singing events in Stroud, and have played at various yoga camps, interfaith gatherings, children's events, retreats, weddings and birthday celebrations.

We feel very clear that sharing kirtan is not about performing, or about 'us'; but more about creating a space together where we can all let go into the deepest part of ourselves; a heart space where we can connect with the more profound aspects of life, touching the very essence of the rejuvenating power of awareness in this present moment.

No great singing ability is required, nor an affiliation with any religious or spiritual path; just a willingness to share in the simple joy of singing and chanting together, connecting with ourselves and others in a deeper way.
