Kirtan with Swami Nirvanananda at 7 Centers on Tuesday

Swami Nirvanananda will be leading an evening of divine kirtan in Sedona on Tuesday, Aug. 21, at 7 p.m. at 7 Centers Yoga Arts, with the support of local kirtan musicians. There is no charge for admission. A generous donation in support of Swamiji's charitable works is deeply appreciated and can be made at the event. Last year's kirtan with Swamiji at 7 Centers drew a large and very appreciative audience. The yoga center is located at 2115 Mountain Road in West Sedona, near the intersection of Shelby and Sunset, and behind the Sedona Humane Society.

Swamiji has been traveling for more than 20 years bringing his beautiful kirtan and uplifting devotional songs to thousands while raising funds to support his extensive charitable projects around the holy city of Puri in India.

Swamiji is a monk of the Giri Sect, in the lineage of Mahavatar Babaji. Since childhood in his native Italy, he has had a natural affinity toward music and an angelic voice. After reading Autobiography of a Yogi in 1975, his predominant wish was to come to America and become a monk in his Guru's ashram. Yet, as he says, "God had other plans for me. He wanted me to roam the world and sing to Him."

So he travels the world with his guitar, raising spirits and raising funds for the good works of Shantipuri Friends Foundation, which gives clothing, food, and education to some of India's most impoverished children. Shantipuri built a school for children living in a leper colony, who were not welcome in outside schools. The Shantipuri school was such high quality that children outside of the colony wanted to attend. The Ashram School in Omkareshwar gives education, care, and vocation training to hundreds of children who have no other access to school. In Udayagiri, Shantipuri provides corrective surgery, physiotherapy, food, clothing and education for physically disabled girls. Other Shantipuri projects include a hostel in Birikote, a school in Sikermaha, the One Cup of Milk a Day Project, the Save Children Project, and more.
