Baraka Bio :
Baraka is a Musical Healing Kirtan group. Kirtans are ancient and mystical chants which purify the consciousness and connect one to the Divine through specific mantras, tones, and musical vibrations. Our message speaks of Unity, Compassion, and Peace. Baraka, is an Ancient word meaning Blessing, Essence of Life, & Soul Power. The band has a brand new Kirtan CD available called “Kirtan of the Sacred Fire”, which combines Agnihotra Fire Healing with Kirtan & Mantra Sound Healing.
“Kirtan is a healing power, it is actually medicine to the wounded souls of humanity and people actually long for this experience. I am simply a vessel of the healing vibrations that come through in the kirtan experience. The Divine in all its Amazing and Powerful Energies and Aspects infuse the mantras and kirtans with tremendous healing power and inspiration. I also interweave my kirtans with stories in my workshops which help relate the mantras and divine names to the participants of the kirtan. I also present workshops such as “Ancient Secrets of Success” using visual representations, sharing universal principles found in ancient spiritual traditions such as Yoga and the teachings of Christ and Krishna, how they are still being used today in the success and business world, along with such principles as the Law of Attraction, showing these same secrets ANYONE can use to powerfully create the life of their dreams and even attain enlightenment.” ~Sakshi Zion
