It's time to put dates in your diary!! This year, we'll all meet again for House of Bliss on fortnightly Fridays from 2nd March to 24th November. The Annual Chanting Festival will be on Sat 8th December.

All welcome, whether you've joined us before or are coming for the first time. Kids are welcome too, as long as they're tuned in to the sound and silence aspects of deep meditation that we go into during kirtan gatherings. Parental awareness and sensitivity to this is always much appreciated.

Volunteers are always needed to help with setup, packdown, and promotions. If you'd like to be regular member of the team this year, or just join us once or twice, do send a message and let us know that you're interested in seva.

If you can, please share our poster jpeg widely and spread the word. If you have a shop, business, yoga studio, music school etc, and you would like to put up a printed poster or have flyers available for your clients, they will be available for pickup each fortnight. Or just let us know where you are, and a volunteer may be able to deliver some to you.

Another fabulous year awaits of chant, dance, and community coming together. At House of Bliss, we join as one through kirtan and celebrate our true heart-and-soul connections!

Much love and peace from The Bliss Team

Y es this day was so special I never had experienced it like this. I stayed the whole day and it was all the way through beautiful and bliss. Thank you Alice I think to a great amount ,it is thanks to your organisation skill that made it so perfect. Love you

Kornelia, it really was so gorgeous and lush, and my heart is touched to hear this from you after all the years you've been going to House of Bliss. Of course, so manh volunteers helped to create and hold the space, and the skill of the musicians keeps improving too. With such a large amount of people attending, the chorus of voices was sublime! Love you too, xoxox

Thank you for sharing this generous chant <3

You're welcome Lainie 🙏🕉

“Chanting is a significant and mysterious practice. It is the highest nectar, a tonic that fully nourishes our inner being.

It releases such intoxicating inner bliss and enthusiastic splendour, that simply through the nectar it generates, we can enter the abode of the Self.”

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!

SHIVANESH have been guest musicians over the years at regular House of Bliss gatherings as well as at some end-of-year festivals.

Joining Sivani and Pranesh at the 2017 Chanting Festival is regular Shivanesh member Nick Lowis. He’s a high-energy drummer and percussionist who always brings fresh enthusiasm as he dives right into the bhav of the music. Through kirtan, Pranesh finds a meeting of his deep knowing of spirit with his innate musical creativity and self-expression. His experience playing guitar and doing vocals in bands for so many years serves him well.

Sivani’s journey with chanting began in 1990 in Kerala at the ashram of India’s famous hugging Saint Amma (Mata Amritanandamayi). It was there in 1993 that she first met House of Bliss band leader Sudeep.

Totally in love with Amma, and inspired by her devotional songs, Sivani soon began playing harmonium and leading kirtan chants at regular Amma satsangs in Melbourne. Chanting became a part of her daily practice and it’s something she’s naturally driven to do. She lives a life of healing, pilgrimage, and spirituality, expressing her love of the Divine powerfully yet simply through her chanting.

Now Brisbane-based, Sivani’s connection to the Byron kirtan community has its roots sitting with Papaji in Lucknow in 1993, where she met Sangeeta Lavin, House of Bliss’s founder.

In 2009, Sivani met Pranesh and they soon became husband and wife. The strength of their friendship with Sangeeta has grown over the years, and during a season together of continuous chanting in Tiruvanamalai in 2015, Pranesh had a steep learning curve, singing and composing chants with guidance from Sangeeta. This same year, the band name Shivanesh was born.

The monthly Chant and Chai Nights they hold in north Brisbane bring community together, and they also contribute to a weekly satsang of the Nityananda lineage. Shivanesh has its own unique take on traditional chants and original compositions. Real, authentic and accessible, they have a lot of fun, and chant because they totally LOVE sharing the sacred sounds and uplifting music.

Shivanesh's offering at this year’s Chanting Festival will no doubt be a beautiful sharing of peaceful heart-space and sweet melodies. Be there from 2:40 to 3:20 to join together in the chant with Shivanesh!

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

For so many years, Julia has loved House of Bliss, and been a key part of the kirtan and singing community in Byron Shire. 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.

Thanks to all who came in person and in spirit to join us for this great night of chanting. It was swingin'!

🌿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🌿
