Kirtan Lounge ” Nectar of Devotion” Vol. 1
A fast-paced career in the high-tech industry in combination with a deep yoga and meditation practice has allowed Gopi Kallayil to integrate his inner and outer technologies to a remarkable degree.
Wisdom from his yoga mat and meditation cushion guides his professional career, and in turn his professional life provides the perfect classroom to deepen his wisdom practice.
Meanwhile, in the midst of this turbulent life, the technology within us needs its Zen-like moments of calm, reflection, and quiet. Now Gopi presents a solution in the form of musical offering that will help you with daily rituals such as yoga and meditation.
