A documentary about the musical and social phenomenon of kirtan, with music from Deva Premal & Miten, Krishna Das, Snatam Kaur, MC Yogi and more.

Mantra: Sounds into Silence is a feature-length film that charts the history, expansion and effect of the new music and social phenomenon of chanting. It focuses on the everyday people who are finding healing and a sense of inner peace by singing mantras together with others just like them, but it also features the artists and musicians who are the focus of this new music-based movement. It’s a film about spirituality, not religion. It's about people reconnecting with their true selves and finding meaning in their lives.

As the film's characters’ stories about their connection to the music unfold, we meet the musicians who have inspired them deeply. Through these encounters, we will discover how Deva Primal & Miten, Krishna Das, Snatam Kaur, Lama Gyurme, Jai Uttal, MC Yogi and others came to this music themselves and to the practice of kirtan, and how, over the years, it transformed their lives too.

This film is part of Bud Werner Memorial Library's ongoing and occasional Yoga Film Series.
