My first live mix back in Australia chimed in with Sangeeta Lavin's last appearance for a while at House of Bliss. And what a concert it was, Edo Kahn and Ohad Rein giving the kirtan a Harrison/Lennon flavour. We go again tonight with Sudeep heading up the constellation. 7pm St Martins, Mullum.

Très très col namaste

Eltara joins the core houseband again this coming Friday, bringing her sweet vocals and strong shakti presence to share with us all. Her wisdom radiates with grace and love...

“I have been meditating for over forty years with the grace of my Guru. Chanting was introduced to me by Sudeep twenty-two years ago at rainbow gatherings. It meets me deeply in my soul, and the Divine Bliss I experience whilst chanting is the sweetest, easiest way for me to receive the blessings of the divine.

My heart loves to be in the Sangha of Chanting. I look forward to singing with our hearts’ collective... When we come together and sing, our hearts and souls rejoice together.”

Here is a clip from our last chant together on 17th August.

It was an ecstatic night at House of Bliss where we came together in a farewell chanting night with Beloved Sangeeta 💜🙏🦋🙏💜before she took flight to journey into the world and continue on her "conscious caravan". A group of inspired people spreading the word of love, light, and sustainability awareness though chanting, yoga, and workshops in communities in South America.

Sending our blessings to you Sangeeta 🙏Thankyou for all the divinity you shared at House of Bliss during your short, but super sweet, time with us all.

Thanks to all those who put the event on, and created such a beautiful vibe for all to enjoy.

Sadhu....Sadhu...Sadhu

Listening to Armando play bansuri is like receiving a gentle soothing massage for the whole being. His raga-infused melodies take us soaring to new heights, beyond suffering, beyond the physical realm. They also allow us to rest sweetly in the warm embrace of the earth, grounded, safe, and relaxed within our hearts.

A true devotee to the divine through his music, Armando loves to play kirtan and bhajan music. He is trained in the Classical Indian Music Tradition, and participates in Indian Arts performances. It is said that his recent collaborations with a local Odissi dancer have sent hearts soaring.

Do come along and hear Armando play. As you chant, tune in to him, and let your self be taken away to dreamworld...

Armando has always been a core member of the houseband. Let's chant together at the next House of Bliss on 17th August.

A very fine musician indeed

This winter we're keeping warm at House of Bliss with some really beautiful community gatherings. Russell and Jenny always prepare such nourishing and healthy food and drinks, so do come and eat beforehand, get yourself a nice hot chai, and treat yourself to some delicious cake or bliss balls.

Chanting the names of the divine, meditating on mantras, and dancing into divinity, we open our hearts into more love, and more peace.

Sangeeta has brought together another lovely group of musicians for 17th August. After a break from House of Bliss, Erik is back on percussion. YAY!!!! And Ohad is back too!!!! After his new CD release tour in Australia and Israel, we're sooo happy about his return to House of Bliss. This week, we'll also be treated by Edo, Peter, and Hielrick, all joining Sangeeta for her very last House of Bliss this visit. It's a mystery when she will return, so do come along and enjoy the night while she's here.

Shunya is back too!! Wonderful!

Is Kirtan on tonight ?

House of Bliss would like to send HUGE LOVE AND THANKS TO TARSHITO for all his love, care, commitment and dedication as Sound Tech this winter. It has been such a pleasure to have Tarshito on the team.

Tarshito is not only awesome at mixing sound, he's also a fantastic musician and prolific producer. His diverse musical creations are available at

He is also a key member of Byron Shire kirtan group "HeartChant". They have a beautiful new location for their fortnightly Friday gatherings, right next to the ocean!! Do you know that Hallelujah song that goes: "There is so much magnificence, by the ocean... Waves are rolling in...waves are rolling in..." It's a local favourite!

Message from Sangeeta:

Beloved Chanting Family: You are the wind under my wings, life in this community has given me courage and direction and I'm grateful forever. Here is a little clip made at the feet of Arunachala in India this year. After traveling in Latin America, some of the musicians from the "Caravan for Peace and Mother Earth Restoration" decided to come to India to continue learning it's devotion and ancient knowledge, a human legacy at the heart of what we love sharing, hand in hand with practical tools and regenerative technologies to replenish and care for all beings and the planet.

At the end of August I will be joining them and many others in Latin America to continue our journey, a pilgrimage to ignite the love for Peace and Mother Earth Restoration wherever we travel through.

Now on the last days of our official Crowdfunding Campaign online, it will be a great blessing to have your loving support helping us to stay on the road from Argentina until Mexico...2018/2019. Imagine Caravans like this spreading all over the world! Keep the spirit high Byron Shire you live in my heart!

Whether you arrive at House of Bliss after a busy day, or glide in with wings of calm, you're sure to find a sweet spot to sit and soak up the beautiful ambience that has been created for you.

The vibe of the temple is a place of sanctuary, a place where all are welcome, and all can dive into joy and peace together through soothing music and mantra medicine.

This coming Friday, we have a really special group of musicians for you, coming together like this for the first time. We welcome back Edo and Emily. This time they'll join original House of Bliss musicians Peter and Sangeeta, as well as core members Dinesh, Hielrick, and Armando. This musical collaboration is sure to birth some extra-ordinary sound healing waves and etheric vibrations!!

This is a rare chance to catch Sangeeta and chant with her. Very soon she will be heading overseas again for an extended period. Do come. Bring your friends, bring your family, bring your cushions and mugs, and hearts ready to open into the bliss...

Let's chant!

How very blessed we were at House of Bliss on the 6/7/18 to not only have wonderful local musician Avishai Barnatan as a special guest, but to also to have the beautiful Sangeeta Lavin back home from her world travels and chanting with us again. The final song shared by Avishai was "Blessed We Are" written by Peia Luzzi. It is one close to many hearts here in the Shire. Yes, how blessed we are...

Sangeeta will be helping to keep our "Hearts on Fire" this winter, alongside the wonderful Houseband and more special guests coming from both near and far.

Next House of Bliss Kirtan is on 20/7/18 with the Shivanesh band joining us from Brisbane!! See you then💜

We will soon be releasing some more House of Bliss live recordings on bandcamp, which will be available for free or by donation. Any funds raised will go back into the kitty to help boost gratuity payments to all the bhakti musicians at fortnightly events and at Chant Fest 2018.

This beautiful Asatoma chant is currently available to be downloaded. It was recorded last December with more than one hundred voices and eleven musicians at the House of Bliss Chant Fest 2017.

This mantra recording is our gift to everyone who was there and everyone who loves chanting. It was the final chant after ten and a half hours of chanting together all day and into the night. You're welcome to download it for free if you like.

🌈Last Friday was such a wonderful chant gathering!!! 🎉WOW! 🙏Again and again, every two weeks, people come together from near and far to raise their voices to the skies with such joy! 💕Our love for song fills the hall and we find a happiness, a peace, and a freedom that we send out in prayer across the world 🎶

And we loved singing Shai Shriki's version of Allah allah ya baba Salam wale ya baba!

Every fortnight we gather to chant the names of the divine. Every fortnight we follow the vision that Sangeeta Lavin set many years ago. Every fortnight we find peace and grace through these gatherings that are House of Bliss Kirtan.

This week, the Houseband welcomes back three devoted bhakti musicians who are all local and all loved by the community: Shai Shriki, Eltara Sri'ta Mahatma, and DanaLee Mynard. Together with Sudeep, Dinesh, Hielrick, Armando and all those who come to chant, we will find the Bliss in the Bhav and open more to love, more to grace, more to peace. Together we send our prayers out through song to touch and heal others on Earth and throughout the Universe.

As community, we gather in the heart of Mullum town, welcoming new people and growing from strength to strength through kirtan, dance, and nourishing wholesome food and chai. Doors open 6:30. Chanting starts at 7pm.

See you there everybody <3

Beautiful Brother Amir!...all families sing together!

Message from Alice: Organising fortnightly Friday chanting in Mullum continues for me this year. I'd love to create an even stronger support crew. The Bliss Team is currently seeking a sewing angel to hem satin fabrics, an Instagram whizz who attends House of Bliss regularly and would like to run the insta page, and setup volunteers who can come from 4pm (just once, or commit to assisting more often). All these roles are volunteer-based but the rewards that come can be surprisingly good! Looking forward to hearing from interested people 🙏🎶💕🕉 ... See MoreSee Less

Have you seen this? On the mid-year solstice, Uplift presents The Power of Mantra as an online opportunity. As part of an hours-long Yoga Summit, the mantra part of the event features some mantra musicians who have roots in Byron Shire and regularly share their mantra medicine with us locally. It looks great! The mantra part of the Yoga Summit will be on from 10am to 10:30AEST on 22nd June, and then available for the next two days to access for free. Let's watch and let's chant!

Devi Kripa Grace & Protection (composed by Edo & Jo) - Last Friday was definitely one of the best nights EVER at House of Bliss! !WOW! There was something unusual and special about it with a number of things that stood out. So much support in the co-creation for the evening!

We welcomed new local resident Emily Bodhi to share vocals and harmonium with the House Band. Her debut kirtan was a sensation! As the closing song, she humbly offered an original she had written just two days before, reminding us all that we are never alone.

The House Band with Edo and Emily was fantastic! So tight, and creating such a safe space for all of us to chant our hearts out, and to relax into the Bliss with deep presence and clear devotion. Thank you to Shunya on PA, Sudeep’s great guidance as band leader, to the other musicians Armando, Dinesh, Heilrick, Emily, and Edo, and to all those who came to chant. A night to remember.

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🌿

Uma Parvati Ananda Mayi - Our most recent House of Bliss was such a joyous gathering! Every time the vibe is comfortingly similar, but with a freshness brought mainly by the mix of Houseband and guest musicians at each event. 

Sonic weavings took us through spaces of peaceful deep introspection, and ecstatic high-volume singing and dancing. About 85 people were in the house, welcomed by warm decor, led by lovely musicians, and blessed with a perfectly tweaked sound system, we all had a wonderful night. Thanks everyone!

Extra love and gratitude to all the volunteers who help make this night what it is.
