Kirtan with Darshan @ Ananda Dallas Meditation & Yoga Center  | Addison | Texas | United States

Our first kirtan of 2019!

Kirtan is devotional chanting – which doesn’t really explain the deep vibrations of joy and the heart – opening stillness that is the experience of kirtan. We sing to God, for God, with God and in God, blending our voices and instruments in harmonies of spirit.

Our friend, and wonderful musician, Darshan, will be with us. 

Join us – all are welcome. Children may accompany parents if they are able to sit still during the brief periods of quiet and participate with willingness.

“And joy is sweet, sorrow a dream…
And joy is sweet, sorrow a dream…
When Thy song flows through me, my Lord.
When Thy song flows through me.” 


About Darshan Lotichius

Darshan is a long time friend and active member of our Ananda Dallas family. This year marks his fourth annual visit to Dallas to teach and share inspiration. Jan Lotichius was born in Holland, in 1960. In 1985 he met Swami Kriyananda in Italy who gave him the spiritual name Darshan and since then, as a member of Ananda Sangha, the spiritual movement founded by Kriyananda, and as an active practitioner of the meditation techniques brought to the West by the great Master from India, Paramhansa Yogananda, Darshan has been experimenting with integrated ways of applying spirituality to every field of social life. In 1992 he founded the Ananda Rome center which he co-directed for several years. Darshan has graduated in Italian and French literature at the Amsterdam and Rome universities and in music and violin at the Bari conservatory. He is a creative writer and choir director. In the late eighties he read Kriyananda’s book Education for Life and since then he has tried to integrate this approach to child education in his many actitivities with children, both as a teacher and a father. Darshan is a founding member of the Living Wisdom School Assisi which he co-directed for three years. He has conducted many summer camps at the Ananda Assisi community and is currently expanding his activities to Holland and America.
