To experience Bliss is to be with yourself, exactly as you are. When our voices come together with the intention to let go of our individuality, let go of thinking and come into our hearts, it is possible that all that divides us will fall away, and totally within reach that we experience the unchangeable, timeless, everlasting nature of ourselves as the Oneness.

Discover this for yourself at the House of Bliss all day chant festival this Saturday. Here are some of the musicians who will be there on the day to provide the rhythm and melodies for our uplifting celebration!

One more Flower Faery to join the Bliss Team as seva. Requires an hour or two Friday in Ewingsdale, and arrival early on Saturday morning to do the displays with the other flower faerys 🌺 Is it you? Please contact Alice ASAP. It'll be fun 🙏🕉

"My shoots are tipped with buds as dusty-grey As ancient pilgrims toiling on their way.

Like Thursday’s child with far to go, I stand, All ready for the road to Fairyland;

With hood, and bag, and shoes, my name to suit, And in my hand my gorgeous-tinted fruit."

We are so happy to welcome back Tahir and Bhairavi for our annual Chanting Festival

On 9th Dec, they will offer devotional music with their band Sufi Soul Sangeet, which inspires audiences to remember the depth of tradition and the art of expression at the heart of devotional music.

Tahir Qawwal is a world-renowned performer of devotional music including sufi qawwali and Indian classical music. He teaches the Raga system of Indian music in Australia and America.

His beloved Bhairavi Devi brings her soft feminine voice to weave with his, and together they bring a beautiful tenderness to traditional bhajan, kirtan and sufi songs. Her voices matches the feminine grace and melody of Eastern music. Bhairavi often offers readings of sublime poetry and accompanies with the tampura, an Indian drone instrument.

They have performed at Bali Spirit Festival, Byron Spirit Festival and many concerts in Australia and USA.

"Chanting is a way of getting in touch with yourself. It's an opening of the heart and letting go of the mind and thoughts. It deepens the channel of grace, and it's a way of being present in the moment." - Krishna Das

At House of Bliss, musicians and chanters come from many different walks of life. There is no guru, no dogmatism, no preaching. Just chanting. The guidance comes through a wide variety of chant styles to assist us all to find the inner guru, that jewel of the Self that knows what is right and best for one and all, that inner feeling that "aums" through the body with pure love and deep peace. Yes, that feeling... The one you choose to know all by yourself...

When House of Bliss was formed in 2013 by Sangeeta Lavin, she was extending the vision she had started with her Lucknow Sankirtan Band. Initially, much of her inspiration to spread kirtan, came through the guidance of Papaji, and her years spent in Lucknow as an ashram devotee and kirtan singer.

Sangeeta has been busy outside Australia recently, but through House of Bliss, many flowers continue to bloom and spread their sweet nectar scent and nourishment. Thanks to these wonderful seeds she planted, we have this beautiful regular community kirtan in Byron Shire. Thankyou Sangeeta ❤️As the lotus does not touch the water
so do not let the world enter your heart..
Being busy in the world is no trouble,
unless you are troubled being busy,
then the only trouble is the trouble..

Ocean does not complain about the dance of ten million waves!
so don't be concerned with the rise and fall of thoughts..

Keeping an old troublesome habit
is like keeping poisonous snakes in your arms.
Now is the time to hold this snake and throw it out..

Bad moods are either past or imaginary future,
in the Present there are no moods at all..
Moods belong to the circumstance, to the past;
face the Sun and there will be no shadow of the moods..

The world is like a tail of dog, it's nature is to curl.
The best you can do is stay Quiet
and not let anything bother you..
Visitors will come and go, don't interfere with these waves..
Just be silent.

~ Papaji

This Friday, she’ll be joining the band again, leading some original mantras, and sharing some beautiful harmonies with her sublime voice, and high-vibe ukulele. Her songs are a fusion of traditional sanskrit and gurumukh lyrics with a modern upbeat twist. One of her recently written mantras includes lyrics in the local indigenous dialect. Peace on Earth.

This beautiful Krishna has travelled far to join our monthly gatherings. We welcome him to House of Bliss.

By buying direct in Kathmandu, the cost of the statue was about half of the price which a similar piece could be purchased for here in Australia. Our fundraising since June has raised sixty percent to cover the purchase cost, and we look forward to reaching our goal soon. Thanks to everyone who has been at our events and generously offered their donations for this community treasure.

Along his travels from Nepal, through Italy, to reach us here in Australia, Krishna had such a long and wondrous journey that he somehow lost his flute! But this loss is a gain, as with pure devotion Sudeep is happily crafting him a new one from some local material... Soon to be revealed...!

For those that don't know Sudeep, he is the main band leader who manages the musical side of House of Bliss in Sangeeta's absence. He was in Nepal mid-year where he found this exquisite Krishna. To save a small fortune on postage, this 12kg deity travelled as hand luggage (!) for over two months, even visiting Europe on his way.

You may wonder why we decided to bring him here...

House of Bliss follows a tradition which includes setting a candle-lit altar to aid focus and respect during chanting, prayer, and meditation. The root of sanskrit kirtan is Hindu, and so each time we gather, we include Hindu deities on the temple-space altars that we create.

In the (almost) five years that House of Bliss has been running, the main altar has been blessed with a number of deities. These have always been borrowed from members of the community, and although we are truly grateful for these generous loans of precious altar-pieces, it will be much easier when this key statue can have a permanent home with the decor caretaker. This will also make logistics much gentler for whoever is managing the decor and main admin as the years go by...

Over past years, the rest of the decor and lighting has been either kindly donated, or purchased cheaply (mostly second-hand) from any door takings that might remain after fortnightly event expenses. This statue is perhaps the largest decor expense to-date. It has created a lovely opportunity to offer the whole chanting community involvement with welcoming him to our devotional space. Thanks to all of you who are part of this. Namaste.

This beautiful Krishna has travelled far to join our monthly gatherings. We welcome him to House of Bliss.

By buying direct in Kathmandu, the cost of the statue was about half of the price which a similar piece could be purchased for here in Australia.

🌿The Edo Kahn and Jo Mall Tribute Band has now been born (LOL) 😂 

Though we were all disappointed that Edo and his partner Emily missed their flight from Sydney and suddenly couldn't join us, the energy was still fantastic🎼🎷🥁✨

👼True Practice lies in the ability to overcome adversity so that we can find the peace within, act with compassion, and share unconditional love 🕉☮️💟Om Shanti Om 🕉☮️💟

Jasmine offered a beautiful song called Saraswati, written by the late Jo Mall 🕊So beautiful... In honour of Edo and Jo's devotion to the Divine, the band also did covers of other mantras that Edo and Jo often share/d🌿
