In a Meditative Mood

The singing of kirtan("chant of the holy names") and prayers is a powerful means to achieve an instant state of bliss and meditation:  chanting with concentration and devotion while sitting with your back straight, you attain a complete, spontaneus harmony between body, mind and spirit. "Siksastakam" is an Hindu prayer to Shri Krishna: together with the beautiful images of this video, it leads you in a contemplative and joyous state of consciousness....
(The video is from "Mystic India", a film about the life and spiritual journey of ascetic Nilkanth, later known as Swaminarayan by his devotees)
