Baba Nam Kevalam: the Path of Bliss
Ananda Marga Kiirtan
Singing mantras is an ancient practice of singing a highly vibrational phrase as a method within a spiritual_path. Ananda Marga uses the Sanskritmantra Baba Nam Kevalam. We are continually in-tuned with the object of our ideation and thoughts. We are what we think, and what we ideate! Singing a mantra that within its meaning carries the meaning of infinite love, will resonate within us with lasting internal happiness; with peace and contentment. Ananda means bliss.
What is the meaning of Baba Nam Kevalam
Baba means ‘my most beloved One’; Nam means ‘name of’ and Kevalam means ‘only’. So the meaning of the mantra is: My most Beloved (Supreme Consciousness) is the only One.
Baba Nam Kevalam is a mantra, kiirtan or devotional_songs sung within Ananda Marga, created by its founder Sri Sri Anandamurti. Ananda Marga teaches tantra yoga with an aim to achieve Bliss (Ananda) giving practitioners deep happiness, and spiritual awakening.
Ananda Margis systematically practice various components of the Yogic lifestyle: observance of universal ethical principles, practice of asanas (yoga postures), practice of meditation.
One of the methods for purifying the mind and preparing it for meditation is kiirtan.

Ananda Margi practice yoga as a methodology leading to the state of Oneness.
According to them, all forces of nature can be divided into three principles:
- Sattvic (sentient) principle: The most subtle one that is associated with awareness, purity, happiness, creativity.
- Rajasic (mutative) principle: Associated with change, growth, movement, restlessness and activity.
- Tamasic (static) principle: The crudest energy form. It is associated with decay, degeneration, ignorance, death and inertia.
The Cycle of Creation manifests itself from the very subtle (Supreme Consciousness) to the very crude (inert matter) and back again to the very subtle again. Human beings are on the path to Supreme Consciousness.

Singing mantras and sacred chants of Siva frees us from all our karma.
It is Siva who causes bondage and who made Maya (Illusion). It is Siva who makes us realise our essential Divine Nature. Siva created the idea of egoism, Karma, pleasure and pain. It is Siva who offers Moksha or freedom. Om and Siva are one.
