Is there no end to human greed?
Whole Earth Kirtan

Spiritual Chants from Everywhere

"Whole Earth Kirtan" usually presents chants from a variety of spiritual paths. However...

For the upcoming Lawrence Bhakti Festival, we will be doing something different - telling the basic story of The Ramayana through narrative and kirtan chants. The Ramayana is the ancient Indian tale of how, in a previous age, Rama, Sita, Hanuman and an army of enlightened monkeys and bears defeated the curse of human greed and insatiable desire as embodied in the King of the Demons, Ravana.

The Ramayana - A Tale For Our Times
or
Is There No End To Human Greed?
