Some of you have asked me to explain what Songha is. Here goes….
I use the word ‘Songha’ to describe musical events in which I offer songs and kirtan (like the events that occur bi-weekly at Noorish Yoga). It is a word that has been created by blending the English word ‘song’ with the sanskrit word ‘sangha’.
The word sangha can be translated to mean “assembly, company or community” and is often utilized within Buddhism, though is not limited to this tradition. A sangha is a gathering of individuals who are engaged in practices of spiritual awakening, where wisdom and knowledge are shared.
Stemming from this idea, in Songha we gather together as a community to share wisdom of the spirit (like a sangha) and this wisdom is shared mainly through song (music chant and sound).
