ONE OF THE STRANGEST AND
SPECTACULAR THINGS WE
EXPERIENCED IS THE ACT OF CREATION.
ALL THINGS FROM SMALLEST TO THE LARGEST, WHETHER THEY ARE INSIDE, OR OUTSIDE, ARE OBJECTS OF RESPECT AND LEARNING, AND WE SHOULDN'T STOP IN OUR GROWTH UNTIL
WE ARE TOTALLY HAPPY.
Ojasvi Kirtan © project started as an individual aspiration to get and to give a connection between our true nature and the source of this nature through Kirtan or ancient chant of Divine Sounds. Due to the certain experiences and support of many our project is growing and transforming according to the movements of hearts of each of those whom we meet.
More than 20 years of yoga practice and study of ancient wisdom, travels all around the world, association with incredible people, and many more, opened for us horizons of our capacities and helped us to become who we are.
MEET THE TEAM
Ojasvi was born in 1975, in former Yugoslavia, and from childhood, he has been very attracted to music and its aspect by which music describes the intimacy of the soul, but until the war in Bosnia that was an unnoticed thing. These circumstances in its way provoked it to come to the surface. By studying ancient Vedas during this time, his experience of this phenomenon was practically directed to the singing of the traditional Indian style of music. By the end of the war, he went to India (Bengal, Delhi, Vrndavan) to come in touch with the original dimension of this expression of the heart. In the next 20 years, he learned and explored different depths of singing, especially Kirtan style. By the guidance of his Spiritual teacher (Guru), He started to travel to different countries sharing the experiences of the deepest needs of the heart through Kirtan, and psychology of understanding the needs, which every living entity has, to awake the understanding of our Self, God (Supreme Being and principal object of faith) and the connection between them (yoga).
Sudevi was born in 1990, in Russia. Since childhood, she was attracted to art and crafts, but practically she found herself in professional sport and teaching. With years sport became art for her, and teaching helped to develop good management skills. But she could never feel real satisfaction from it. Later she will find a missed connection in yoga and a new chapter of her life will start. All experiences will find place and realization, which will help her to feel completeness. Travel and life in India redirected her interests back to art and music. Finally, Kirtan happened in her life and never left. Inspired by changes in her heart and mind, and deep study of yoga scriptures and traditional (folk) Indian music she hoped one day be able to share it with others.
With such needs very soon, each of us met spiritual practice in their own times and places, not even being aware of the existence of birthplaces of each-other. To say in this way, studies of the spiritual aspect of life started between all usual flows of life and took the direction of serious investigations in ancient yoga scriptures and especially practices of Bhakti yoga (yoga of devotion). Very rich musical culture, and pretty much practical philosophical and psychological part of Vedic scriptures presented by authentic teachers, attracted us both and encouraged our studies to the point of living almost like a monk, giving us enough of inner peace to be able to unite our being spiritually and materially. At some time, life brought certain turbulence, delivering us to the crossroads where you must choose almost final directions, set the course and sail it to its manifestation. It is there where we met, simple man/woman matters played its rolls and united us beautifully as husband and wife. All our experiences, musical, psychological, philosophical, unavoidable life and relationship experiences formed the activities which we as a couple are doing in our life.
The meeting of these two seekers marked the beginning of the project Ojasvi Kirtan. As a husband and wife, as best friends and as a like-minded people we dedicate our life for connecting ourselves and others with our true Self and the Source of this Self - the Supreme Source of all power, fame, wealth, knowledge, beauty, renunciation, the most desirable happiness and Love, through Kirtan and sound meditation.
WHAT WE DO
Live concerts / Kirtan performances
Human needs seminars
All, what we do, like in the case of many people, started with something simple, with a specific attraction to some specific activity and some special inclination inside of that activity. Amongst all, what was happening inside of our lives, something attracted us the most, some thoughts, different needs, many questions which couldn't be solved, but yet answers were present all around through some books, scientific research, mystics of different kinds. The need to expand yourself, to grow, was searching its place, but the atmosphere to "fit in" was always pulling to its side trying to take away the life out of us! To "fit in" is very good quality, but you need to be your complete self to be able to contribute to the society where you reside, to stay happy, to stay genuine!
Already for many years, we are traveling, educating ourselves, participating in Kirtan (musical performances of spiritual mantras and prayers) events all over the globe together with different workshops, seminars and counseling sessions which all started from simple private, family, spiritual and practical life tips to different personalities, couples, troubled hearts, etc. Out of a wish to shape better our experiences and education, to give good quality support to people with whom we are in contact or which we will meet on our travels, during different sessions (musical, psychological, philosophical) we started our project where all of them can find a place in one occupation named transformational visionaries combined with ancient wisdom all united inside of universal language called music where everybody can find their place and make the transformation!
LIVE CONCERTS / KIRTAN PERFORMANCES
To be able to go into experience of a deep dimension of the soul, magnificent sound, ancient mantras, timeless mind, captivating songs presenting qualities of Brahman (Sanskrit word which means-Spirit) and Param Brahman (Sanskrit words for Supreme Spirit, the source of all), we are being invited to particular places performing live concerts and Kirtan (ancient and traditional way of performing music to enable personal experience). If you are in search of contact with the Supreme Creator called in different traditions with different names, Kirtan is a truly authentic place where we can find it! No matter where you are, how many people are there, or which tradition is performing it, it is hidden there, where true and honest hearts are doing it!
We are honored to present it to you from our side too, and to take the journey where all our senses, mind, intellect and emotions find a resting place!
In the world of music, we always feel free, feel what we are, and discover deeper and deeper realms of our presence in this miracle called life! That is exactly what producing of music is doing to us (Ojasvi Kirtan Team). Therefore, we invest time in studying and producing music, so we will be able to contribute from this side, too. The world of music production is huge and gives almost unlimited variations, but as we said, music is timeless and gives unlimited opportunities for expression. Therefore, we want to share our part with you and the world in the sphere of music where everything is possible!
Smiley faces, jolly eyes, happy independent but still united hearts - are expressions that we see within people who get an opportunity to analyze themselves, others, and the world through stories, feeling free despite possible defending mechanisms present within our hearts, which usually could prevent us in our growth! Shortly, this is exactly why we do this. It is a rejuvenating process, which brings lots of joy and growth to everybody!
SOUND MEDITATION WORKSHOPS
These simple workshops enable us to do multiple changes within all levels of our existence through listening and sound pronunciation! Many of us are just stuck a little on the ways of achieving what is the best for us and because of that we could feel nervous, intolerant, suppressed, and emotionless, sometimes projecting our blockade on others and the world. It is time to give ourselves deeper experiences and finally release the flow of growth energy to ourselves and others!
HUMAN NEEDS SEMINARS
We do these sessions whose very essence is to revile us what is standing behind, or which force is pushing us to make different choices which could be of huge importance! From our experiences there is an enormous need of understanding human behavior, to refresh the manual for human existence, body, mind, intellect, and help each other to build a more understanding and harmonious life which shows us those hidden needs. Reservoirs of our success hidden deeply behind superficial reactions of every each and one of us. On these seminars, we can learn how to understand the very essence of everyone's behavior, so that finally we can experience true emotions which are the greatest moving force existing on the planet and whole creation!
So, join us in attempts to support everyone's way into transformation, to spread information in their genuine form, and make that all blossom into beautiful perception which is everyone's rightful heritage!
With love, Ojasvi Kirtan ©
