Bhakti Dojo is a Brooklyn-based kirtan group hosted by Srikala (of Srikalogy) and Jesse Johnson. We lead an open kirtan practice (Music and Mantra Meditation/Celebration) every Sunday afternoon at our home in Brooklyn, where we sing sacred sounds and share stories and poems from the ancient mystics. "Bhakti" is the sanskrit word for devotion, surrender and divine love. "Dojo" is a place for practice and discipline. Bhakti Dojo's mission is to spread the joys and blessings of sacred sound vibration by cultivating a community that supports the transformation that accompanies regular practice. We are storytellers and musicians, dancers and poets, teachers and servants, and we offer all this service in love.
Every Sunday evening In Brooklyn or online, 5-7:30pm.
"Gonna go out on a strong limb and say that the Bhakti dojo composed of Jesse Johnson, Srikala Kerel Roach and anyone else present singing was the most moving experience of the weekend. These guys showed up in a really unique, hardworking way, and played kirtans that I happily stumbled upon each day. It was as if they were their very own transformational music festival within the whole. Wow, how healing. Please do your festival/event a favor and invite these guys out! Hari Bol!" - Paul Kellogg
