Healing benefits of Kirtan for fertility
Have you heard of the healing benefits of Kirtan?
The ancient practice of kirtan (“KEER-tahn”), or yogic “call and response” chanting has many of the mind-calming benefits of a yoga class or sitting meditation.
For those who find meditation difficult, kirtan can deliver the same stillness of mind, without acquiring the discipline of concentrated silent mental focus. The repetition of Sanskrit mantras helps the release of over-thinking mental chatter and opens your heart which elevates your mood. By creating inner calm, a deep peace can be experienced and this triggers healing in your physical and energetic layers.
Fertility is a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual phenomenon that allows you to give life to another multi-dimensional human being so it makes sense that Kirtan can have a positive impact on boosting fertility.
What is Kirtan and why is it so beneficial?
Kirtans have been written in Sanskrit, the ancient Indian language and one of only three natural languages on the planet. All three natural languages create geometric shapes in our body and energy field which help our body’s return to a state of harmony and improved health. (The other natural languages are Arabic and Hebrew). Like these other alphabets Sanskrit has a strong energetic vibration that penetrates through to your body, your mind and spirit.
Healing benefits of Sacred Geometry
Sacred geometry holds a high vibrational frequency which helps all aspects of our self to operate at its optimal level of frequency. Commonly known sacred geometry includes The Flower of Life. (As pictured to the right)

Kirtan for assisted fertility success
I recommend listening to Kirtan around the time of embryo transfer. Kirtan can help energetically balance out the negative aspects associated with assisted fertility.
The Practice of Kirtan
Traditionally, kirtan is sung in a group with person leading the chants. The chants speed up and slow down, in doing so creating the ability to lead the audience into ecstatic highs of joy, love and harmony
Perhaps the most famous American kirtan leader is Krishna Das, who is credited with introducing this transformative practice to the West. Many others have contributed to making kirtan what it is in the United States, including Deva Premal, Jai Uttal, Bhagavan Das, Russill Paul, Wah!, and Dave Stringer. You can hear examples of these below and I encourage you listen as often as you can.
I have selected my personal favourites which I enjoy listening to whilst working, doing the house work, driving, riding my moped, etc.
Krishna Das Kirtan
Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
Hare Rama Hare Rama
Rama Rama Hare Hare
The Hare Krishna mantra, also known as Maha Mantra meaning “The Great Mantra.”
Om Mani Padme Hum
A Tibetan mantra designed to transform your impure body, speech, and mind into a purer body, purer speech, and purer mind (like that of a Buddha).
Om Bhur Bhuvah Svaha Tat Savitur Varenyum
Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi Dhiyoyo Na Prachodayat
Oh God,the Creator and Energizer of the whole Universe, the Giver of happiness, Who is Pure and the Purifier of all, let us embrace that very God so that our mental faculties are directed in the right direction.
This is difficult to translate but is giving thanks and gratitude for absolute happiness
Jai Uttal Kirtan
There are several Jai Uttal songs in this YouTube clip that you can leave playing in the background.
As with all kirtan, through the repetition you will learn the lyrics and they will keep playing in your mind throughout the day – keeping the healing benefits of kirtan with you even after the music stops!
