Bhagvad Geeta is also

Kirtan is bhakti yoga and mantra yoga. Bhakti yoga works on the attitude of the mind -
the emotions are affected and cleansed - purified to a higher state of being. The base emotions -
those of jealousy, envy, hatred, anger are slowly removed with kirtan and mantra yoga -
the science of sound vibration 'spandan'. The personality is refined.
This happens just through participation in kirtan.
There is no effort put in to this refining that occurs.
Singing kirtan whole heartedly is the process which leads to changes
in our mental attitude, emotions and perspective effortlessly.
What one moves towards is 'atmabhava' the feeling of oneness, universality.
You are welcome to bring instruments, percussion, lots of attitude, potluck.
(It is not necessary to have a singing voice.)
