What is Kirtan?

Kirtan is one of the oldest sacred music traditions of the world. This call and response music tradition comes to us from India.

Using ancient Sanskrit mantras, the kirtan calls upon sacred energies which serve to quiet the mind, remove obstacles, and bring us back to the centre of our being. By repeating simple mantras over and over, faster and faster, the kirtan is an easy way for people to experience some freedom from the daily chatter of the mind.

The purpose of this music is to get us out of our heads and into our hearts. By chanting live with musicians and a group of participants all adding their energy to the chant, the vibrations begin to synchronize and the resulting experience is very powerful.

So if you are having a terrible day, it may be difficult to hold onto those feelings during the chant experience. Even if you sit in the room without participating you can feel a shift. Something happens as you absorb the vibrations. The energy begins to ignite the free spirit that exists within us all.

Please Save for your Records

Dear Annette,

Thank you for your gift of $240.00 to help put new smiles on young faces around the world! You have offered a gift that is far more wonderful than you realize. That’s because it’s impossible to measure the value of a transformed life in dollars and cents. How wonderful to say, “Because I cared, a child’s life was changed forever.” On behalf of that child and all of us at Operation Smile, thank you!

Sincerely,

Dr. Bill Magee

Co-founder and Executive Chairman

Dear Annette,

Welcome! My wife Kathy and I are deeply grateful that you’ve reached out to help give a beautiful smile to a hurting child. We hope you’ll experience again and again the great joy that comes from knowing you’ve helped change a child’s life forever.

Let me tell you how it all started. In 1982, Kathy and I went to the Philippines to provide surgeries for children born with cleft lip and cleft palate. About 300 girls and boys came for surgery, and we could help only 40 of them. It was heart-wrenching to turn the others away. So, we recruited a group of friends to go back and take care of those precious kids.

That was the first Operation Smile medical mission — our first team. Since then, we’ve changed over 200,000 lives in more than 80 countries. We’ve also trained thousands of local surgeons and other medical professionals to continue our work in their own countries.

Thanks to friends like you, children who have suffered far too long are getting new smiles and new lives.

Again, I’m thrilled that you’ve chosen to be part of our inspiring and fulfilling work. Thank you!

Dr. Bill Magee

Co-founder & Executive Chairman
