Whole Earth Kirtan

Spiritual Chants from Everywhere

"Whole Earth Kirtan" is a chant and world music ensemble composed of
Larry Carter and various combinations of friends.
We present chants from a variety of spiritual paths.

As Ram Dass put it,
"Be open to all teachers and all teachings, and listen with your heart."

For example..

Life is in all forms. Love is in all beings - Sufi

Listen to the Lord and Lady call their children in the moonlight. - Pagan

Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya
(I bow to the One who lives in the heart of all.)
- Hindu

Open my heart, what do I find? I find beauty and beauty finds me. - Original

I just want to celebrate another day of living.
I just want to celebrate another day of life.
- Rare Earth (classic rock)
